`Pax Americana: World-Power Politics and Peace on the Threshold of the
Lambrecht and Brussels, 12-26 March 1999
In 1941, in an article in Life Magazine, the co-founder of Time
Inc., Henry Luce, announced the advent of `the first American century'. Whether or not he
meant the century that is now coming to an end, or the period until the 2040s, the time
since 1917, if not before, can rightly be claimed to have been an American-dominated
This fact has prompted the Hessische Stiftung Friedens- und Konfliktforschung (HSFK:
Peace Research Institute Frankfurt--PRIF) and the Atlantische Akademie Rheinland-Pfalz
(AARP: Atlantic Academy of the Rhineland-Palatinate), to devote their ninth spring academy
on security issues, taking place on the threshold of the twenty-first century, to a number
of questions that look both backwards and forwards: What are the peculiar characteristics
of American dominance in politics, economics, society, and culture? Has this dominance
been--and does it continue to be--a blessing to humankind, or is it something we can do
without? What remains of the Pax Americana, the American-influenced world-order, now that
the Cold War is over? Is the last world-power really an `indispensable nation', as
President likes to describe it? Is it really `bound to lead', as the Harvard political
scientist Joseph S. Nye claimed in 1990, or can the world do without this leadership? Will
`the first American century' not even last a hundred years, or will it be followed by a
second, and even a third?
These and other questions will be the subject-matter of our spring academy, which will
take place from 12 to 24 March 1999 in the Pfalzakademie in Lambrecht (near Neustraße on
the `wine route') and will end with an excursion to NATO headquarters in Brussels
subsidized by the German Ministry of Defence.
An especially warm invitation is extended to undergraduates nearing the end of their
course of study, to graduate students, and to anyone interested, for professional reasons,
in further training in peace and security policy. Lecturers and discussion-leaders will be
drawn from the research staff of the PRIF and other institutions in Germany and abroad and
from representatives of politics and diplomacy. Participants may sit a three-hour
examination, for which a certificate is awarded.
The number of participants is limited to thirty. The conference fee is DM840 (DM420 for
students/unwaged sharing a double room) and covers pre-conference material, accommodation
and full board in Lambrecht, and travel and overnight costs on the excursion. The
information-pack containing the pre-conference material will be sent to all participants
by mid-February and should be studied before the start of the academy.
Anyone wishing to take part in the spring academy should write, by 15 January 1999,
to the address below, giving full details of their studies and/or professional experience
to date. Further information may also be obtained from this address.
