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: Researchers develop method to transfer entire 2D circuits to any smooth surface

What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.

Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...

Im Focus: Three components on one chip

Scientists at the University of Stuttgart and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) succeed in important further development on the way to quantum Computers.

Quantum computers one day should be able to solve certain computing problems much faster than a classical computer. One of the most promising approaches is...

Im Focus: Substitute for rare earth metal oxides

New Project SNAPSTER: Novel luminescent materials by encapsulating phosphorescent metal clusters with organic liquid crystals

Nowadays energy conversion in lighting and optoelectronic devices requires the use of rare earth oxides.

Im Focus: A bit of a stretch... material that thickens as it's pulled

Scientists have discovered the first synthetic material that becomes thicker - at the molecular level - as it is stretched.

Researchers led by Dr Devesh Mistry from the University of Leeds discovered a new non-porous material that has unique and inherent "auxetic" stretching...

Im Focus: The force of the vacuum

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.

The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
