“A Truly 'European' Christian Democracy? The European People’s Party” – a new publication by a member of the Chair in Constitutionalism and Political Systems

Dr hab. Beata Kosowska-Gąstoł contributed to a collected book "Christian Democracy Across the Iron Curtain. Europe Redefined" published by Palgrave Macmillan. She wrote a chapter "A Truly 'European' Christian Democracy? The European People’s Party".

This book is the first scholarly exploration of how Christian Democracy kept Cold War Europe’s eastern and western halves connected after the creation of the Iron Curtain in the late 1940s. Christian Democrats led the transnational effort to rebuild the continent’s western half after World War II, but this is only one small part of the story of how the Christian Democratic political family transformed Europe and defied the nascent Cold War’s bipolar division of the world.

Dr hab. Beata Kosowska-Gąstoł has been for many years involved in research devoted to the organizations of Christian-Democratic parties and their cooperation with conservative ones. More information at the Publisher’s website: www.palgrave.com/de/book/9783319640860#aboutBook
