Dear Madam / Sir,

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the upcoming 18th edition of the International Symposium Ideologies, Values, and Political Behavior in Central and Eastern Europe. This edition marks the 20th anniversary of the Department of Political Science.

The event aims to bring together researchers interested in Central and Eastern European politics. We welcome paper proposals from scholars on political topics in Central and Eastern Europe as detailed below. The proposal should be no longer than one page and it should include a short Curriculum Vitae. All selected participants will be informed before the 15th of November 2020.

Selected papers will be included in the forthcoming volume of the Political Studies Forum journal, published yearly by the Department of Political Science.

The Symposium will include panels such as:

  • The European Union at crossroads: political, social, economic and cultural challenges

  • The specter of populism: continuity, change, diversity

  • Diplomacy and international relations: shaping the 21st century

  • 30 years since the reunification of Germany: regional and international implications

  • Intelligence and security studies: challenges and opportunities

These are just some of the scientific topics that will be addressed during the conference. We also welcome contributions on similar topics from the fields of political science and international relations.

There is no participation fee. Unfortunately, the organizers cannot cover the costs for travel and accommodation, and we recommend you to apply to your own university for such funds. We can, however, assist you with reservations in the university’s dormitories and other practicalities.
