Event Highlights: European Security in the Era of Decolonization

On Tuesday, March 14, 2023, Leyla Tiglay, Ph.D. candidate in history at Ohio State and an Ernest May Fellow in History and Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science & International Affairs, gave a talk at the Center for the Study of Europe entitled, “European Security in the Era of Decolonization: France-Italy-Germany (FIG) Nuclear Cooperation as an Alternative Vision of Transatlantic Order 1957-1959.” In her lecture, based on her dissertation research examining the nexus of nuclear history and decolonization, she explained how decolonization shaped nuclear politics and the transatlantic relationship in the 1950s.

This lecture took place as part of the Center for the Study of Europe’s “Europe in the World” series – an initiative of the Jean Monnet Chair in European Security and Defense, Kaija Schilde. The aim of the series is to prompt critical reflection on human and regional security informed by cross-national experiences and a variety of disciplinary lenses as well as to introduce or emphasize EU perspectives into ongoing debates around security integration and global challenges.
