Please join us for a talk with Sara Lorenzini, Associate Professor of International History at the School of International Studies, University of Trento, Italy.

This talk will deal with the political economy of East-South relations in the 1960s and 1970s, devoting special attention to the predicament of the Socialist countries with the concept of the Third World. Dr. Lorenzini argues that the technical organs in the East bloc, scarcely influenced by the rhetoric of solidarity, were careful if not sceptical about the prospects of East-South cooperation. The main organ she considers is the Permanent Commission for Technical Assistance (CTA) in the Comecon (Council for Mutual Economic Assistance, under the leadership of the Soviet Union).
