About the conference

What are the historical roots of views of European defence and Europe’s role in Western defence? How did the early European integration movement perceive American involvement in the development of a common security strategy?

This conference will investigate these and other related questions by re-examining the early Cold War US/European relationship and the role that developments in the early Cold War period played in the European integration movement. In so doing, this conference will also showcase findings which can contribute to the unification of Cold War and European integration historiographies.

The conference is funded by the FNR through the “BENELUXCORE Junior research project.
