The rivalry of the systems following 1945 brought about a political fragmentation in a small area in Southeastern Europe that was second to none. The consideration of the region as a "focal point of the Cold War" is therefore almost inevitable, in order to discuss interactions between global power constellations and local characteristics and continuities.

This year, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moved the Doomsday Clock dial forward to two minutes to midnight.

The aim of this blog is to present the history and academic results of one of China’s leading institutions in the field of international history and Cold War studies.

The two Germanies' respective South Asia policies relied on and referenced one another to such an extent that they on occasion punctured the bipolarity of the Cold War.

Unraveling the multiple, entangled strands of the history of the Cold War remains one of the great challenges of research into the recent past, and especially in what was then the Third World. Because the frontiers of the rival spheres of influence in the Northern Hemisphere stayed fixed and, for the foreseeable future, seemed impenetrable, from the late 1950s onward the US and USSR increasingly shifted their struggle for resources, dominance and prestige toward the Global South. But American and Soviet leaders were not the only actors who determined the course of events. Historian Bernd Greiner on a topic that deserves greater attention.

For years, East Germany's Communist party, the SED, promoted the impression that it was cultivating a close and special relationship with the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) under the leadership of Yasser Arafat on the basis of common values and shared political goals.
