Luša: How a war-time alliance transformed into a tense confrontation and Cold War

lusa zavrsno webZagreb, March 6, 2015 – On the final lecture on International Relations of prof. Đana Luša of Faculty of Political Science in Zagreb within the study programme of the IEC and the Academy, students had an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the beginnings, the developments and crises of the Cold War which has dominated the second half of the twentieth century.

During the lecture, Luša explained the background of the Cold War and the series of developments that led to an alliance of the United States, Great Britain and the Soviet Union transforming into a confrontation of two blocks armed with nuclear weapons. In many ways, students could implement their theoretical knowledge gained in the first lectures to better understand the crises and conflicts of the Cold War.

Professor took great care to analyse the process by which NATO was established, as she shined a light on the context of the threat of the Soviet Union and a complex array of national interests of the United States, Canada and European countries which resulted in the creation of a comprehensive treaty of collective defence.

„On behalf of the IEC and the Academy, I would like to thank professor Luša on sharing her expertise and knowledge on International Relations within our study programme and I am certain that you have been successful in intriguing and engaging your students. " said the president of the IEC Goran Neralić.
