Content:

The United States’ role in the world has undergone some profound changes lately. Its status of an international leader, the great power in a unipolar world and a global agenda-setter has been increasingly questioned and challenged both domestically and internationally. One can speak of an ongoing global structure shift where transformations within and around the United States warrant close attention and careful analysis. The IIP has launched a series of discussions titled USA and the World that aim to shed some light on such pressing issues as the status of arms control negotiations, the transatlantic relations, and the upcoming presidential elections in the United States.

The discussion will be held in English.

Inhalt:

Anlässlich des internationalen Frauentages 2020 präsentieren die Herausgeber Bettina Biron, Wolfgang Duchkowitsch und Wolfgang Lamprecht des Instituts für Publizistik- und Kommunikationswissenschaft der Universität Wien in Kooperation mit dem International Institute for Peace am 9. März um 18 Uhr ihr neues Standardwerk aus der Reihe Kommunikation. Zeit. Raum.

Kriege sind prägend für unsere Erinnerungskultur. Doch der Fokus wird allzumeist nur auf Männer gelegt, die zur Waffe greifen, den Kriegsdienst verweigern oder in politischen Positionen Entscheidungen treffen. An gefallene Soldaten erinnern Kriegerdenkmäler, Lieder und Bücher. Doch Monumente für Frauen und deren wesentliche Rolle in Kriegen sucht man oft vergeblich. Die ahnungslose oder auch absichtliche Ausblendung der Hälfte der Menschheit in Kriegen führt unausweichlich zu einer Verzerrung der Wirklichkeit.

Deshalb widmen sich in diesem akribisch recherchierten Werk internationale Forscherinnen und Forscher unterschiedlicher Disziplinen den weiblichen Zeitzeuginnen und zeigen wissenschaftliche Perspektiven über das frühe 20. Jahrhundert bis in die Gegenwart – von der „Friedens-Bertha“ bis zur „Flinten-Uschi“, von Publizistinnen sowie Rezipientinnen über Kriegsbefürworterinnen und Pazifistinnen bis hin zu Arbeitskräften in der Kriegsmaschinerie.

Frauen. Medien. Krieg.

Arms Control and Disarmament – Challenges and Opportunities for the European Union

INVITATION

The International Institute for Peace (IIP), in collaboration with ENTER, COST, the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna, and the University of Vienna, cordially invite you to the panel discussion:

Arms Control and Disarmament – Challenges and Opportunities for the European Union

Date:                                   Wednesday, February 26th, 2020

Time:                                  18:00                  

Venue:                                International Institute for Peace (IIP), Möllwaldplatz 5 / 2. Floor, 1040 Wien

Moderation:

·       MARYLIA HUSHCHA, research assistant at the IIP

Panelists:

·       HEINZ GÄRTNER, Member of the Advisory Board, IIP; lecturer at the University of Vienna

·       ANGELA KANE, Vice-President of the IIP; former UN Representative of Disarmament Affairs

Content:
This panel discussion will discuss significant arms control and disarmament issues today.

The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, which was signed by the United States and the Soviet Union in 1987, required both countries to destroy their stocks of ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with a range between 500 and 5,500 km.

However, the INF Treaty collapsed in 2019 after the United States withdrew. The New START-Treaty of 2011, which limits the number of US and Russian nuclear warheads on intercontinental ballistic missiles to 1,550, is on the verge of expiring if it is not extended by 2021.

The conclusion of the Joint and Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) between Iran and P5+1 in 2015 was a masterpiece of effective multilateralism. Since American President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the agreement in 2018, the likelihood of military conflict in the Persian Gulf region has increased drastically.

The initiative on a NWFZ in the Middle East did not make much progress, however. Many falsely hoped that the 2015 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons would give the idea new momentum.

Legally binding NSAs raise some other interesting possibilities. At a United Nations Conference in July 2017, 122 state parties voted in favor of a treaty that prohibits all nuclear weapons. However, no nuclear-weapon state nor their allies participated.

The treaty expresses concern about the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of using nuclear weapons and calls for their complete elimination.

There are currently two opposing views on nuclear security: nuclear-weapon states feel more protected with nuclear weapons, while non-nuclear-weapon states think they are more secure because they have none.

In the run-up to the Review Conference of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) in April-May, the EU will discuss in several seminars and workshops these and other in many ways controversial issues.

The Discussion will be held in English.

The IIP invites to snacks and drinks after the event!
