Why you should go.  After the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, the leaders of Europe aimed to establish a new balance of power. The 1815 Congress of Vienna ushered in the emergence of a genuinely European security culture. Securing Europe after Napoleon offers new insights into the military cooperation, ambassadorial conferences, transnational police networks, and international commissions that helped produce stability.
