7TH CEU Conference in Social Sciences
“What Follows after the Crisis? Approaches to Global Transformations”
Central European University

May 27-29, 2011

Following a global financial crisis and numerous political challenges, 2011 appears to offer us new opportunities for engaging in debates and research work. Bridging economic, political, and social challenges this period continues to be a problematic reality check for theoretical and empirical perspectives. Are the current events ahead of scholars’ conceptualizations, politicians’ capabilities, and policy-makers’ solutions? With many challenges ahead, there is a hope to generate interdisciplinary academic debates that tackle relevant topics in their fields of research. Through this year’s conference there is a hope to provide an interdisciplinary space which will enable different perspectives and approaches to come together in order to provide explanations and understandings of contemporary processes.

  1. Dear sir or Madam,

    Can you please tell me which is the minimum number of participants (I plan to apply with one of my colleague only) , and can we apply with one topic that is 7-8 paper long.

    Thank you

    1. Dear Alma,

      bear in mind that Mladiinfo is not CEU, but to answer your question: Each panel will include maximum 8 papers, each participant acting both as presenter and discussant. Panels should include no more than two participants from the same university/institute.

      So, for one panel max. 8 participants. And about the length, please contact the CEU directly here: [email protected].

      Best,

      Kristina,
