Daqing Yang – Regional Orders in East Asia: From the Washington System to the East Asian Community

2014 witnesses the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. The war is regarded as a major historical turning-point. But was it really and, if so, also on a global level? How can one situate this event and, above all, its impact in the global history of the 20th century?

This international conference, that was hosted by the Institut für Zeitgeschichte and the Max Weber Stiftung from the 14th until the 16th of November 2013 in Munich, did not limit itself to the typical Eurocentric perspectives and traditional narratives but rather discussed the disbandment, reformation and continuity of systems within and outside of Europe. Political, socio-cultural, economic and legal systems on an international and national level were also addressed, as well as ideological systems of order and new knowledge systems.
The analysis of envisaged and practised systems allows for a better understanding of long-term and global developments.
The aim of the conference was to cast new light on the historical impact of the First World War in the 20th century.
