The purpose of the conference is to foster collaboration and to encourage exchange of ideas between young researchers representing different countries and research traditions as well as varied historical and cultural backgrounds. The expectation is to create a forum where diverse approaches and perspectives on international relations could be voiced and discussed thus widening the scope of understanding and interpretation of this broad sphere as well as evaluating and questioning the current state of International Relations.
Participants are encouraged to explore the notions of sovereignty, security, and human rights, which are at the same time both closely interrelated and often hardly compatible. This is especially important in today’s chaotic and unpredictable international arena where sovereignty is in decline, security is at stake, and human rights dominate.
Both conceptual and empirical studies are accepted for the conference. Comparative studies across contexts are also welcome.
