CFP: Diplomacy at the End of Empire (CES, Paris, July 2015)

My paper will be on Franco-Portuguese relations in the 1960s, but I am interested in bringing together a broad range of geographic and chronological approaches to the question of how diplomatic relations evolve when imperial systems break apart.
