Conference Commemorates the Fall of the Berlin Wall

January 27, 2009

On January 26th, the Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with the 2009 Ansary Foreign Policy Conference, a retrospective symposium entitled The Cold War is History: Twenty Years After the Fall of the Berlin Wall.

The conference will take place from 1:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center at the George Bush Presidential Library Center, and will feature talks by renowned diplomatic historians. They will discuss the fall of the Berlin Wall and what the subsequent changes in the international landscape have meant for the regions and nations most deeply involved in the Cold War—the United States, Western Europe, Russia, the former Soviet Republics and Eastern Bloc states, and China.

Among the noted panelists attending the conference are:  Chen Jian., an Emmy-award winner for his documentary on China;  Melvyn Leffler, winner of the Bancroft Prize in diplomatic history;  James Sheehan of Stanford University, formerly president of the American Historical Association;, and William Taubman, a Pulitzer prize-winning historian .

The end result of the conference will be a major book on the fall of the Berlin Wall, edited by the Scowcroft Institute’s Interim Director Jeffrey A. Engel, and published by Oxford University Press.

The 2009 Ansary Foreign Policy Conference is supported by the University’s Melbern G. Glasscock Center and the European Union Center of Excellence, the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation, and Oxford University Press.
