Legacy of the CMEA Cooperation: Conference in History of Political Economy of Socialist Camp
Faculty of History and Philology of Chelyabinsk State University will hold the «Legacy of the CMEA Cooperation: Conference in History of Political Economy of Socialist Camp» on 11-13 May, 2019.
Our aims is to bring together historians of CMEA and socialist countries economic interactions to discuss current research projects and actual methodological problems.
In 2019, we will have 70th Anniversary of the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance. We think this is a good reason to take a closer look at the Legacy of the CMEA: What role did the CMEA play for the economic development of the socialist countries, for their trade with each other and with third countries? How effective were the mechanisms of cooperation and integration within the block? Did Eastern Europe have specific integration model?
We want to promote encounters and discussions to reveal and understand the different visions and approaches to the problem of economic interaction of socialist countries. Moreover, we are open to proposals for roundtables and discussions topics.
We also hope that an informal atmosphere will emerge for a productive discussion of professional issues.
