Argument

Traditionally, Cold War was regarded as a political, ideological, military, economic, strategic or political conflict between the capitalist and democratic West, on the on hand, and the communist and non-democratic East, on the other. Benefiting from the opening of archives, both in Eastern Europe and elsewhere, an increasing body of literature has begun to notice and study more and more instances of cooperation and collaboration between the East and the West.        

The aim of this event is to bring together established, senior and junior scholars and researchers from a variety of fields and perspectives (Cold War Studies, International relations, foreign policy, political sciences, history, economics, media studies etc.) to foster discussion on East-West contacts, whether they were characterized by conflict, competition, mistrust, trade, cooperation or compromise.   

It invites papers (and panel of papers) on topics such as:

  • East-West contacts (commercial, cultural, political relations etc.);
  • CMEA-EEC relations;
  • CMEA intrabloc relations;
  • Romania’s foreign policy in the Cold War.
