Conference: Parliament contested?

Friday 9 June 2023, 9 am - 5:45 pm
Rethinking the relationship between national politics, global crises, and pressure from below in the 1970s

The purpose of this conference is to reassess the role of national parliaments and national policy-making processes in the 1970s in light of the increasing global challenges and extra-parliamentary pressure that occurred. What can be seen as decisive turning points shaping the political history of the era? Were they the same in each country, or did they differ from state to state? And in what way and to what extent were these defining moments and events related to citizen activism, national political factors and cross-border actors or influences respectively? Furthermore, what do our findings tell us about politics in the 1970s, also in relation to the ‘revolutionary’ 1960s and the ‘neoliberal’ 1980s?

This conference is open to interested scholars and students. Participation is free of charge (lunch included). However, places are limited and registration is mandatory.
