Conference: "From Helsinki to Gorbachev, 1975-1985: The Globalization of the Bipolar Confrontation", 27-29 April 2006, Artimino, Italy

Apr 24, 2006

The conference seeks to challenge existing interpretations of the last phase of the Cold War by presenting the result of new research in the field and by introducing new interpretative paradigms. In particular, the conference is designed to work towards a new narrative of the last decade of the Cold War that accounts for the fact that several critical new aspects and factors emerged during that time that changed the nature of the international system. The conference will also try to trace the roots of the contemporary international system to the developments of the late 1970s and early 1980s.
