"Divided Together?" International Organizations and the Cold War


At a time of growing distrust in intergovernmental organizations, a look back at the history of international institutions can help us better understand and appreciate their role during the 20th century. Newly-available archival material of several international organizations, new oral history projects, and an ever-increasing interest of historians in the evolution of global governance call for an in-depth, personal scholarly exchange. The conference aims to assess the state of the field, present and discuss new and empirically-based research, and identify future research agendas and avenues for cooperation.


The conference is generously supported by the Botstiber Institute for Austrian-American Studies, the Vienna Meeting Fund, the Österreichische Forschungsgemeinschaft (ÖFG), the Department of Development Studies, the Department of History and the Faculty of Historical and Cultural Science of the University of Vienna, and the Department of History of the University of Geneva.


Registration is mandatory.
