The Foundation is involved in or contributed to the publication of books, articles, and special issues of different kinds. These publications are often the result of prior conferences or events supported by the Foundation.
Below is a selection of such publications.
This book is the result of the 2009 Annual Pierre du Bois Conference “Transatlantic Security Issues from the Cold War to the 21st Century“.
This book is the result of the 2010 Annual Pierre du Bois Conference “Europe Twenty Years after the End of the Cold War: The New Europe, New Europes?“.
This book is the result of the 2011 Annual Pierre du Bois Conference “Terrorism and International Politics: Past, Present, and Future“.
This book is the result of the 2011 Conference “Les dimensions transnationales de l’anticommunisme de guerre froide : actions, réseaux, transferts,” organized by the Université de Fribourg with the support of the Fondation Pierre du Bois. The book covers the aims, arguments, and associations of a range of transnational anti-communist activists during the Cold War. It demonstrates the com- plex array of forces, factions and frictions that were active during the Cold War, and explores new fields of research regarding how far anti-communism was actually planned, coordinated, and structured across Western nations.
The 2011 Conference’s “Rapport scientifique” is available here.
This special issue of British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies has its origins in a workshop entitled “The Fragments Imagine the Nation? Minorities in the colonial and postcolonial Middle East” which took place in November 2013 at the Graduate Institute in Geneva, with the support of the Fondation Pierre du Bois. It was organized by Professor Jordi Tejel from the Graduate Institute and Professor Benjamin Thomas White from Birmingham University. In this special issue of BJMES, the authors attempted to develop nuanced approaches to minority politics in the Middle East. They do this in a collection of articles from a range of disciplines such as history, comparative literature, religious studies, and politics.
This book is the result of our support of the 2014 Conference “The Role of the Neutrals and Non-Aligned in the Global Cold War, 1949-1989,” co-organized by Professor Jussi M. Hanhimäki of the Graduate Institute and University of Lausanne’s Professor Janick Marina Schaufelbuehl, Dr Sandra Bott, and Dr Marco Wyss. Three have been several projects that have explored the role of the third-world in the Cold War, particularly since 2015. However, the significance of neutral countries in general, and Switzerland in particular, during the Cold War in the third-world has, as of yet, garnered little research. It is in an effort to address these gaps that the three publications from this international conference were issued.
The same conference also resulted in two further publications.
A special issue entitled “Beyond and Between the Cold War Blocs” appeared in The International History Review.
A second special issue entitled “Suisse et Guerre froide dans le tiers-monde,” in Relations Internationales, was published in 2015 (Issue 3, Number 163).
