11-12 NOV | From Helsinki to Berlin: Europe and the End of the Cold War

CEI-IUL is organizing the International Conference “From Helsinki to Berlin: Europe and the End of the Cold War”, on November 11 and 12, 2019.

The conference will gather national and international scholars to debate the end of the Cold War and the fall of the Berlin Wall from diverse theoretical and geographical perspectives. Our aim is to question traditional Cold War narratives that tend to place the United States and the Soviet Union at the center of the action, debate the role of European actors and the global impacts of the end of the conflict.

The conference programme is available here.

This conference is part of the project “NOWALL: From Helsinki to Berlin: Europe and the Fall of the Berlin Wall”, coordinated by CEI-IUL researcher Luís Nuno Rodrigues and co-financed by the European Commission’s Europe for Citizens Programme. The project will promote academic and non-formal education activities to promote a better understanding of European history, its diversity, and encourage debate and participation, especially by younger generations, in the European institutions.

The project is a partnership between CEI-IUL (coordinator), European Association of Young Educators (Portugal), JEF-Finland (Finland), Young Educators Duitsland (Germany) Stichting CAAT Projects (The Netherlands), University of Helsinki (Finland) and The Willy Brandt Foundation (Germany).

The conference will take place in Auditorium B02.03, Building II, ISCTE-IUL.
