CWIHP Director Christian Ostermann is participating in a 4-5 March 2010 international conference UNESCO and the Cold War.

Organized by the international Scientific Committee for the UNESCO Project and hosted by the Heidelberg Center for American Studies, the conference aims to explore how both opposing blocs attempted to use UNESCO as an instrument in the war of ideas, as well as the important role that the organization played in decreasing East-West tensions throughout the Cold War.

Ostermann's comments will center on Engaging the Other Side of the "Iron Curtain."
