Conference venue: Amsterdam (The Netherlands)
Period: Jun. 25-27, 2013
Deadline for submitting abstracts: Oct. 8, 2012
The Council for European Studies (CES) invites call for proposals for the international conference on "Crisis and Contingency: States of (In)stability", that will take place in Amsterdam in June 2013.
The conference will address the definition of Europe in broad terms.
The current economic crisis of debt, the euro and unemployment takes place in a framework of highly dynamic creative and destructive processes occurring at various levels: globalization, heightened nationalisms, continued migration, shifting cultures, rising inequality, concerns over security, climate change, sustainable development, etc.
All of these transform definitions of Europe: of its geographical boundaries; of what institutions are needed to structure and resolve issues of policy and democracy; and of how Europe can and might interact with other parts of the world, from North America to revolutionary North Africa to the new powerhouses in Asia and Latin America.
Proposals may be submitted from August 15 to October 8, 2012. Information on how to submit proposals will be available during the summer in the CES website.
