Scientists Meet Scientists – TUM-IAS Wednesday Coffee Talk by Prof. Tim Büthe: “War, Peace and Interdependence: Lessons from 1914 for Understanding Ukraine in 2023”
Events, WCT |
On February 8, 2023, Prof. Tim Büthe (International Relations, TUM) will talk about “War, Peace and Interdependence: Lessons from 1914 for Understanding Ukraine in 2023”.
Economic interdependence is supposed to make the military escalation of international conflicts more costly and hence less likely – and the peaceful resolution of those conflicts more likely. Yet, high levels of interdependence did not prevent World War I in 1914 nor the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Why? Prof. Büthe presents the results of historical research from July 1914, when European powers escalated lingering political conflicts into a military conflict that became World War I, to analyze why economic interdependence did not provide a sufficient safeguard to ensure peaceful conflict resolution. The findings provide insights into where German foreign policy in recent years went wrong (and where it didn't) in putting great trust in economic interdependence as a force for peace.
