Third CEU Graduate Conference in Social Sciences
May 25-27, 2007

“Challenges for CEE States in an Enlarging EU and a Globalizing World”

The aims of the conference are to provide an interdisciplinary academic debate and to contribute to developing knowledge networks among peers in the field. At the same time, we hope to connect different perspectives and approaches in order to produce high standard academic works by providing an appropriate academic environment.
In three days, a number of regional and global issues will be comprehensively discussed in workshops and panels. Although the topic of the Conference focuses on the CEE region, valuable contributions on different topics and areas are welcome. Both case studies, comparative and statistical approaches are welcomed.

We encourage graduate students and young faculty to contribute with papers and participate in the proposed workshops and panels. Each panel includes approximately 5 papers by young scholars. Another young scholar participates as discussant. Each panel is led by a senior scholar or expert in the relevant field of study who will moderate the discussions. A large amount of time is dedicated to discussion. The working language is English.

Proposed topics (we can form panels once we receive the papers): 
- Political parties, electoral systems and voting behavior
- Civil society, politics and states
- Post-Communist discourses
- Democratic challenges
- Regimes in post-Communist states
- VOTC and CEE
- The prospects of reform and development in post-Communist states
- The changes in nature and practice of power in the CEE region
- New security issues in the light of the EU extension
- The Europeanization of CEE
- EU and the USA through Eastern Eyes
- International Relations Theories
- New Political Economy of Transition/Development
- Migration and minorities in CEE
- Combating non-conventional challenges: terrorism and trafficking
- Third Party Interventions, civil conflict resolution and/or changing alliance structures
