SOCIALIST VISIONS AND POLICIES ON EUROPEAN COOPERATION CONFERENCE
organized by
Federico Romero | EUI-HEC and Angela Romano | London School of Economics
23-25 May 2013
Sala Europa, Villa Schifanoia
Via Boccaccio 121, Florence

In the era of détente the partition of Europe was criss-crossed by an expanding web of exchanges that prefigured a pan-European area of cooperation. The geopolitical and ideological divide remained in place, but it cohabited with this emerging continental space that encompassed conflict as well as collaboration, and was often read within an expectation of gradual convergence and interdependence. The conference aims at investigating the place that this nascent pan-European space occupied in the economic, ideological and symbolical life of Socialist regimes. Its findings and conclusion will bear directly upon scholarly understanding of the transformation and crisis of Socialist regimes, the role of Europe (East and West) in the unwinding of the Cold War, and the shaping of a new continental system.
