On Thursday the 7th of April, Dr Sandra Bott will be our guest for this month’s panel. She will share with us her research on Neutrality, Capitalism and the global Cold War in Southeast Asia. Specifically, the panel will be discussing the political and economic relations between Switzerland and the countries that formed the ASEAN countries from 1967 until 1990.

The panel is scheduled to have an approximately half hour long presentation by Dr Sandra Bott, followed by an hour long window for an interactive discussion.

Please find the bio of Dr Sandra Bott below:

Sandra Bott is currently a visiting fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science, as well as a senior lecturer at the Institute of Political Studies, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Lausanne. She wrote her doctoral thesis on the political and economic relations between Switzerland and South Africa in the context of the Cold War and apartheid, and has published several works on this topic, including a monograph that was published in 2013. Her subsequent work has focused on the global gold market from the 19th century onwards (The Global Gold Market and the International Monetary System from the late 19th Century to the Present (ed.), Palgrave Macmillan, 2013), as well as on the role of European neutral and non-aligned countries in the global Cold War (special issue of the International History Review entitled ‘Beyond and between the Cold War Blocs’, 2015, with J.
