France, under the leadership of President Francois Mitterand, played an important but under-studied role in the unification of Germany and the end of the Cold War. Frederic Bozo, author of Mitterrand, the End of the Cold War, and German Unification will present findings from his new book drawing on newly available archival evidence to explore France's role in the peaceful reunification of Germany and the end of the Cold War. Stephen Szabo will provide comments.

Frederic Bozo is professor of contemporary history and international relations at the University of Paris III, Sorbonne Nouvelle. He is the author of numerous books and articles on transatlantic and European security issues, including most recently Mitterrand, the End of the Cold War, and German Unification.

Stephen Szabo is the executive director of the German Marshall Fund's Transatlantic Academy in Washington, D.C., and a former Wilson Center Fellow. Prior to joining the German Marshall Fund, Szabo served as Academic and Interim Dean, as well as Professor of European Studies at Johns Hopkins SAIS.
