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: New studies increase confidence in NASA's measure of Earth's temperature

A new assessment of NASA's record of global temperatures revealed that the agency's estimate of Earth's long-term temperature rise in recent decades is accurate to within less than a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit, providing confidence that past and future research is correctly capturing rising surface temperatures.

The most complete assessment ever of statistical uncertainty within the GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) data product shows that the annual values...

Im Focus: The geometry of an electron determined for the first time

Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.

The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...

Im Focus: Self-repairing batteries

UTokyo engineers develop a way to create high-capacity long-life batteries

Engineers at the University of Tokyo continually pioneer new ways to improve battery technology. Professor Atsuo Yamada and his team recently developed a...

Im Focus: Quantum Cloud Computing with Self-Check

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.

Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...

Im Focus: Accelerating quantum technologies with materials processing at the atomic scale

'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.

However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...
