    Past internal seminars

    • PanEur1970s project (one-day workshop)

      PanEur1970s is a five-year project (2015-2020) – based at the European University Institute – to investigate the European Socialist regimes’ expectations and predicaments vis-à-vis the opening of a space of pan-European cooperation in the long 1970s. The project intends to provide a historical appraisal of the late Socialist élites’ views of their countries’ place and prospects in an emerging space of trans-European connections that presented them with new patterns of exchange and potential regional integration while challenging existing configurations of stability, political control and ideological self-legitimization. PanEur1970s is particularly interested in exploring how the elites of the European Socialist regimes conceived and rationalized their increasing economic exchanges with, and deepening financial dependence from, Western Europe.
