  5. Ostpolitik, 1969-1974: The European and Global Response

    Fink, Carole
    Ostpolitik refers to the principle of change through rapprochement. German for “Eastern politics,” the term originated with West German Chancellor Willy Brandt's efforts to normalize relations with East Germany and other East European states in the 1970s. Ostpolitik has influenced world politics; for example, South Korea's “Sunshine Policy” toward North Korea takes a similar approach. This conference looks at how Ostpolitik has influenced international relations in Europe and around the world, including a consideration of the nuclear issue.

This symposium will bring together interdisciplinary scholars from around the world to generate new ideas for building U.S. institutions that are responsive to such conflict. The symposium will use social problems implicated by police-community relations as a case example to refine and expand our understanding of the possibilities of dispute system design.
