The Cold War Research Center

The Cold War History Research Center (Center) was established in December 1998, following a pioneering civic initiative, as the first scholarly institution founded as a non-profit organization in East Central Europe. The Center was founded with the aim of continuing within a new, independent institutional framework the international research that had been coordinated for several years by the international research section of the 1956 Institute in Budapest.

Since January of 1999 the Center, an NGO, has been functioning as an independent legal entity as a foundation.One of the main goals of the Center is to provide research of Cold War history in Hungary with an organizational framework and material conditions that make it possible for Hungarian research to be on the cutting edge of the international Cold War history research and to help Hungarian research be integrated with the international level of scholarship.The Center continues the intensive cooperation that developed between the the 1956 Institute and the network of international Cold War history research coordinated by the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Cold War International History Project (CWIHP) and the National Security Archive (NSA) in Washington D.C. since the early nineteen-nineties.

Thus, from the time of its establishment the Center has been contributing to the flourishing of the “new Cold War history” aimed at transforming the previous one-sided approach based primarily on Western sources, finally into a real international discipline through the systematic exploration of the once top secret documents found in the archives in the former Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc countries.

International Linkages of Economic and Public Health Security

The Department of International Studies is calling for paper abstracts to be submitted by February 21, 2020 for a conference on “International Linkages of Economic and Public Health Security” with a view to inspiring an interdisciplinary discussion on the subject between participants from various different disciplines (including and especially International Relations, Political Science, Sociology, Health Sciences and Climatology).The conference is to be held on April 9, 2020.

Papers are to cover a wide range of topics related to the subject of the conference, with international linkages of economic and public health security in the focus. Some examples, to illustrate the diversity of contributions we are expecting, and by no means to exhaust the conceivable possibilities: 

  • Implications of economic recession for international security 
  • Toxic linkages: The mechanisms behind the emergence and spread of economic crises 
  • The public health implications of climate change and processes of migration 
  • International political determinants of public health 
  • Current challenges to Universal Health Coverage 
  • Emerging diseases and international cooperation 
  • The political economy of neglected diseases

Abstracts on the above or other, similarly interesting subjects should be sent by the above deadline (February 21, 2020) to Chief Organizer Péter Marton, Ph.D. at peter.marton@uni-corvinus.hu. Interested scholars and students are also welcome to contact Dr. Marton with any questions they may have related to the planned conference. The occasion of the conference will serve to herald the publication of the print edition of the Palgrave Encyclopedia of Global Security Studies (ed. by Péter Marton, Scott Romaniuk and Manish Thapa — a forthcoming publication). One of the aims of the conference is to assemble a journal special issue for publication (details to be announced later on). The deadline for the submission of articles will be April 17 (that is, one week after the conference).

The conference is connected to a research project co-sponsored by the European Union, Hungary and the European Social Fund in the framework of the EFOP-3.6.3-VEKOP-16-2017-00007 project (titled „Tehetségből fiatal kutató – A kutatói életpályát támogató tevékenységek a felsőoktatásban”
