  Add to Calendar 2019-09-25 16:00 2019-09-25 17:30 Europe/Paris Launch of the Schuman Centre’s Seminar Series: The Yves Mény Annual Lecture "'What the Habsburg Empire got Right' and Why it Matters"

A century ago the Treaties of St. Germain en Laye and Trianon officially ratified the break-up of Austria-Hungary and the distribution of its territories among several successor states. The Treaties also laid the basis for the ways the Habsburg Monarchy would subsequently be remembered by Europeans, largely as a "prison of peoples" and a "feudal anachronism." In this lecture I go beyond these common nationalist tropes to examine other possible legacies of Europe's most multi-national state, its institutional innovations, its particular strengths, and the reasons for its ultimate downfall. Are there lessons to be learned for today's European Union?

Professor Pieter Judson delivers this year’s Yves Mény Lecture to kick off the Schuman Centre's seminar series.

The lecture will be followed by a cocktail.
