The Department of Geography at the University of Bern in Switzerland is organizing an international conference on 9-11 October 2014 on the issue of political self-determination, entitled:
“Self-determination in Europe – contemporary challenges of minorities in multinational states”
We invite proposals for individual papers and posters as well as complete panels. This international conference, which is directed at both academics and policy practitioners, is related to the Swiss OSCE Chairmanship 2014.
The general theme of the conference encompasses a wide range of topics and approaches. We invite proposals that focus on empirical research and case studies, conceptual and theoretical issues, or policy relevant aspects with regard to self-determination in Europe alike. Since the conference will be open to decision- and policy-makers, country or region-specific panels will be also considered.
for complete panels: May 1, 2014
for individual papers/posters: May 15, 2014
