Description of the Conference

The processes of political, economic, and cultural change in Europe have had a particularly strong impact upon the countries of Eastern Europe and their neighbours in the east. It is timely to reflect on and debate the ways in which Europe and the former Soviet Union has experienced and coped with crisis in all its forms, past and present.
The process of change in Eastern Europe since the fall of communism at the end of the 1980s, the accession of 10 Eastern European states to the EU and the continuing work of European integration in the former Yugoslavia make this an appropriate time to reflect on the experience of Eastern Europe, Russia and the former Soviet Union.
The congress theme ‘Europe: Crisis and Renewal’ provides a focus to allow reflection on contemporary challenges – political, economic and social – as well as on the history of Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and the former Soviet Union.

Confirmed keynote speakers:
- Professor Jörg Baberowski (Humboldt-Universität Berlin, Germany)
- Professor Richard Sakwa (University of Kent, United Kingdom)
