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: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
