Vom 05.11. bis zum 07.11.2014 findet im Niederländischen Nationalarchiv in Den Haag und im Gebäude der Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschppen in Amsterdam die Konferenz Vienna 1815: the making of a European Security Culture statt.
Zitat aus der Tagungsankündigung:
„How does diplomacy serve to restore security in a world of crises, conflict and right out wars? The European heads of states not only managed to beat Napoleon in 1815, they also succeeded in negotiating peace between the major European powers, and established a security system for the decades thereafter of which the newly constituted Kingdom of the Netherlands was a substantial part.
The Young Academy and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences will be organising a major international conference this autumn about the Congress of Vienna, which took place from 1814 to 1815. A discussion of the fruits, merits – but also weaknesses – of the origins of the European security system and ensuing culture will put our time of global upheaval, pending crises and calls to arms in a historical perspective.“
