Abstract. The gauging of axionic, Stueckelberg-type shift symmetries with generalized Chern-Simons terms and the Green-Schwarz mechanism of anomaly cancellation has recently been studied in the context of string compactifications and with regard to the phenomenology of certain variants of Z'-bosons. In this talk, following recent work with De Rydt, Rosseel, Schmidt and Van Proeyen, I summarize how such theories can be reconciled with global and local N = 1 supersymmetry.
