Power Vacuum Politics and the Origins of the Cold War in Europe

Abstract: The collapse of Nazi Germany, brought about by the Axis powers’ crushing defeat in World War II, created an international power vacuum. Across large parts of Europe, Germany’s absolute authority at the international level collapsed and it was yet to be seen who would lay renewed claim to it. In this talk, Moritz Graefrath uses the case to illustrate his theory of power vacuums in international politics. He argues that variation in great powers’ responses to such vacuums are best explained by the interaction of two factors: first, whether a vital, supplemental, or no strategic interest is at stake; and second, whether a great power can identify a “dependable instrument” through which it can issue its bid for control. He shows that, from 1943 onwards, power vacuum politics permeated both U.S. military strategy as well as U.S. officials’ planning for and shaping of the continent’s political future. Overall, his study of the case thus suggests that the early Cold War was in large parts a continuation of a struggle for authority over key parts of the continent that had begun well before V-E Day.…
