On the heels of the Nobel Committee’s decision to award the European Union the 2012 Peace Prize, the book “Europe Twenty Years after the end of Cold War” asks how Europe has evolved over the last two decades after the fall of the Soviet Union. The work was edited by Bruno Arcidiacono, Professor of International History and Academic Programmes Director at the Institute, Katrin Milzow, Axel Marion, and Pierre-Étienne Bourneuf, all holders of PhDs from the Graduate Institute. Published by Peter Lang Academic Publishers, it is the result of a conference entitled, “Europe Twenty Years after the end of Cold War: The New Europe, New Europes?” organised in October 2010 by the Institute and the Pierre du Bois Foundation for Current History.
The book compiles nearly 20 articles from distinguished scholars and young researchers, including Katrin Milzow, Axel Marion, and Institute Assistant Professor Annabelle Littoz-Monnet. It looks at whether or not the period since the end of the cold war has led to the emergence of a new political space, how the European Union has changed with the integration of new members from Central and Eastern Europe and how Europe has changed in the eyes of its inhabitants as a consequence of these events.
More information on “Europe Twenty Years after the end of Cold War” is available on the Peter Lang website.
