European Integration in a Globalizing World 1970-1985

15.03.2012
We do not know much about the interaction between globalization and the institutional integration of Europe.

The conference “European Integration in a Globalizing World 1970-1985” on March 22-23, 2012 at Kulturwissenschaftliches Institut in Essen (KWI) aims at defining the role of the European Community in the network of multilateral politics in the 1970s and early 1980s more precisely and – vice versa – the influence of globalized world actors and institutions on the European construction.

Research on international history agrees that international relations entered a new phase during the 1970s. World politics underwent fundamental transformations on at least three realms. First, the rapprochement between the US and China, the deterioration of the relations between the Soviet Union and China and détente between Washington and Moscow altered security and peace policy. Second, with the oil shock of 1973 the post-war economic world order broke down and changed the character of trade and other economic affairs.

Third, social welfare and human rights as new policy fields arose on an international level against the background of a growth of civil society in the nation states. Low politics became of greater importance for political decision making: human rights within the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) process, development assistance or environmental protection.

Über das Kulturwissenschaftliche Institut Essen (KWI):
Das Kulturwissenschaftliche Institut Essen (KWI) ist das Forschungskolleg der Universitätsallianz Metropole Ruhr (UAMR), zu der sich die Universitäten Bochum, Dortmund und Duisburg-Essen zusammengeschlossen haben. Seine Aufgabe ist die Förderung hervorragender interdisziplinärer Forschung in den Geistes-, Sozial- und Kulturwissenschaften mit regionalen, nationalen und internationalen Partnern. Das KWI erforscht die Grundlagen der modernen Kultur praxisnah und mit Blick auf aktuelle relevante gesellschaftliche Fragen. Derzeit stehen die Themenfelder kollektive Erinnerung, kulturelle Vielfalt der Weltgesellschaft, soziale Verantwortung und kulturelle Aspekte des Klimawandels im Mittelpunkt. Mit seinen Veranstaltungen sucht das KWI den Dialog mit einer breiteren Öffentlichkeit, es unterhält enge Partnerschaften mit Kultureinrichtungen und Medien.

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: 3-D scanning with water

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
