The conference will cover post-Soviet Central Asia and the Caucasus (both South and North Caucasus). The main topics of the conference will be multilateral organisations and:
- Humanitarian and development aid
- Conflict prevention, management and resolution
- Migration and refugee policy
- Inter-organisational coordination
Paper proposals should be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org . They should include a 200-300 word abstract and be accompanied by a bibliographical note of about 50-100 words. Paper presentations will last no more than 20 minutes and will be in English. No translation will be provided.
June is a good time to visit Oslo, with nature in full bloom and more than 18 hours of daylight per day. It would be possible to combine the conference with a 2-3 day trip to the picturesque fjords on the Norway's western coast. The conference participants must take care of any such arrangements themselves, but the conference organisers may be able to provide basic advice.
Please pass on this announcement to anyone who might be interested.
