CfA: Raising Citizens Activity and Encouraging Youth. Participation in the European Elections

RAISING CITIZENS ACTIVITY AND ENCOURAGING YOUTH

PARTICIPATION IN THE EUROPEAN ELECTIONS

1-8 May, 2009, Sofia

The National Student Confederation, Europe House-Sofia, JEF and UEF-Bulgaria have the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the international training course "Raising Citizens Activity and Encouraging Youth Participation in the European Elections".

The European elections in June 2009 are an excellent opportunity to further engage the young citizens with the European project. A whole generation born after the Fall of the Iron Curtain will vote for the first time in European elections. That there is a need to educate young people to take part in elections is not an issue. However, the turnout is lower than that in national elections and there´s an overall perception that voting in European Parliament elections "doesn´t change anything".

The training course "Raising Citizens Activity and Encouraging Youth Participation in the European Elections" to be held in Sofia from 1 to 8 May 2009 will meet the need to inform the new European generation how the EU works and the rights and obligations the EU citizenship brings in order to encourage them to vote in the European elections and contribute to boost the turnout.

The political, social, economic and cultural aspects that the course addresses will contribute to shape a vision how to strengthen European democracy and counteract the rise nationalist and eurosceptic movements who deny the concept of European citizenship.

The participants will gain practical knowledge how to communicate the EU то the young citizens and build capacity for organization of information events during the election campaign. The ideas and knowledge generated during the seminar can be used by every participant and be implemented at local level.

The project will involve governmental officials, elected representatives, as well as scholars, activists of civil society organizations and, most importantly, the participants themselves in a series of debates.

The rich social program, including horse ride in Vitosha mountain (optional) and sightseeing trip to the Rila Monastery, one of the most significant and picturesque monuments on the Balkans, will enable the participants to feel the atmosphere of Bulgaria - an ever-evolving and modern country with great cultural heritage and traditions, dating back from Roman and Byzantine times.

CfP: Media, Nationalism and the War Crimes

Mediacentar Sarajevo announces

a call to authors

for awarding stipends for research papers

on the topic of

MEDIA, NATIONALISM AND WAR CRIMES:

media (re)production of national ideologies through reporting on war
crimes in

serbia, croatia and bosnia-herzegovina

National ideologies in media in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia are the focus of two-year research conducted by Mediacentar Sarajevo.

The study will focus on several prominent cases of reporting on war crimes which arouse different emotions in different ethnic groups, such as reporting on the trial of ICTY indictee Radovan Karadzic, as well as other reporting on war crimes trials or individual important cases of war crimes which the media have given a prominent place.

The research will examine the nature of media reporting on war crimes in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia, the socio-economic and socio-political context in which the media operate, as well as the influences of the regulatory framework, media ownership and journalists' cultures on media reporting on war crimes.

Publication of a book on (re)production of national ideologies in media reporting on war crimes in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina is planned in 2010.

CfP: IJCV 3 (2) 2009: Ethnic and Racial Violence

IJCV 3 (2) 2009: Ethnic and Racial Violence

The International Journal of Conflict and Violence invites submissions to a focus section devoted to the topic: ethnic and racial violence. A feature of much of the world's violence and many of its conflicts are cleavages drawn along ethnic and racial lines. Violence takes the form of both violence against and committed differentially by minority populations in some countries and elsewhere majority populations are more frequently victims or disproportionately perpetrators. Spontaneous or organized ethnic violence is expressed by individuals and small groups and also by large groups, by organizations and obviously by states too. It can arise within a nation state or take the form of a transnational conflict. How can we better understand these conflicts and acts of violence?

Contributions to this issue that address many different forms of ethnic and racial violence from individual criminal violence, including ethnic hate crimes, to forms of collective violence like riots or pogroms up to ethnic civil wars, "ethnic cleansing" and genocide are welcome. We are especially interested in empirical papers that contribute to better comparative understanding. We encourage analyses that are comparative, but contributions may also focus on a single national case. Preference will be given to case studies where the authors highlight how their work betters our understanding in other countries as well. In this issue we will not include studies of transnational conflicts. We define "empirical" very broadly to include ethnographies, field studies, archival work, and of course quantitative methods.

The focus section will be guest-edited by Professor Werner Bergmann (Technical University in Berlin/ berg0154@mailbox. tu-berlinThis email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it) and Professor Robert Crutchfield (University of Washington/ crutch@u.washington .eduThis email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it ).

Deadline for submissions is May 31, 2009.

For general convention information, contact ASN Executive Director Gordon Bardos (gnb12@columbia. edu or 212 854 8487)**

As always, the Convention boasts the most international lineup of panelists of North American-based conventions, with more than half of the 350+ scholars, from more than 40 countries, who will be delivering papers currently based outside of the United States. More than 700 panelists and participants are expected at the convention.

In the wake of seminal events that have unfolded in 2008, the Convention will feature four panels in a special section on "The War in Georgia and its Implications" and four on "The Independence of Kosovo." These will enrich an exceptionally strong lineup of panels in all regions of the former Communist world and Eurasia: Russia, the Caucasus, Central Asia/Turkey/ China, the Balkans, Ukraine and Central Europe (including the Baltics and Moldova). The Central Europe and the Balkans sections lead the way with 23 panels each, followed by Central Asia/China/Turkey— with a combined 16 panels, Ukraine and Belarus—10, the Caucasus—9, and Russia—8 (excluding the Northern Caucasus). Twelve panels appear in the "Thematic" section. Recurrent themes on the program include the Politics of Memory, Mass Violence, War Tribunals, EU Enlargement, Ethnography, Ethnic Minorities and Diasporas.

The Convention will be hosting ten special panels featuring new important books by Anders Aslund, How Ukraine Became a Market Economy and Democracy (Peterson Institute, 2009), Brendan O'Leary, How to Get Out of Iraq with Integrity (Penn Press, 2009), Dejan Djokic, Elusive Compromise: A History of Interwar Yugoslavia (Columbia, 2007), John Hall (Ernest Gellner: An Intellectual Biography, Verso 2009), Timothy Snyder (The Red Prince: The Secret Live of a Habsburg Archduke, Yale 2008), Henry Hale (The Foundations of Ethnic Politics: Separatism of States and Nations in Eurasia and the World, Cambridge 2008), Stephen M.

Emmert, eds. (Confronting the Yugoslav Controversies, Purdue 2009) and Larissa Onyshkevych and Maria G. Rewakowicz, eds. (Contemporary Ukraine on the Cultural Map of Europe, M. E. Sharpe, 2009). The Ingrao and Emmert book was featured in the news section of the New York Times a few weeks ago.

Two of these book panels are part of the section "Theories of Nationalism, " now in its sixth year at the ASN Convention, which offers a platform for the latest trends in nationalism studies worldwide. Fourteen more panels appear in the Nationalism section, such as "Processes of Violence,""Things Fall Apart: The Politics of Fragmentation in Armed Groups," and "How (Not) to Study Ethnic Conflict".

Since 2005, the ASN Convention has acknowledged excellence in graduate studies research by offering Awards for Best Doctoral Student Papers in five sections: Russia/Ukraine/ Caucasus, Central Asia/Eurasia, Central Europe, Balkans, and Nationalism Studies. The winners at the 2008 Convention were Jesse Driscoll (Stanford U, Political Science) for Russia/Ukraine/ Caucasus, Sarah Cameron (History, Yale U) and Kristin Fabbe (Political Science, MIT, US) for Central Asia/Eurasia/ Turkey, Helena Toth (Harvard U, History) for Central Europe, Valentina Burrai (UC London, UK, Political Science) for the Balkans, and Lee Seymour (Northwestern U, Political Science) for Nationalism Studies.

CfA: Workshop, Incorporating Diversity into the Teaching of Public A

Course Innovation Session for teachers in higher education and trainers in relevant fields, particularly from the former Soviet Union, Mongolia, South-Eastern Europe.

Dates: 12-16 October 2009

Venue: Central European University (CEU), Budapest, Hungary

Deadline: 1 September 2009

Co-organizers:

http://cps.ceu. hu

Center for Policy Studies (CEU)

http://lgi.osi. hu Local Government and Public Service Reform Initiative (OSI)

http://web.ceu. hu/crc Curriculum Resource Center (CEU)

Overview:

The accommodation of ethnocultural diversity and other forms of difference are central to good, stable democratic governance. Yet, few courses and schools in public administration in Europe and beyond equip future decision-makers with the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed for a diversity-friendly public sector.

This workshop brings together instructors from CEU and other leading institutions to provide teachers of public administration higher education and related fields (including policy studies, political science, government, and related trainings topics) with a better understanding of the connections among diversity, public administration, and public administration education. The workshop includes conceptual
and practical sessions related to the main theme, during which participants explore key concepts, challenges, existing practices related to diversity management, as well as teaching methods, literature and other resources needed in the classroom. Participants also clarify how public administration education or institutions can be a model of good diversity management. Participants are encouraged to present and
reflect on experiences from their own teaching contexts.

By the end of the workshop, participants will finalize a course syllabus with reading lists. Participant will also discuss ideas and plans for future cooperation and on-going learning. In 2008, the Council of Europe, Minority Rights Group-International , CPS, LGI/OSI, the European Academy (EURAC) in Bolzano/Bozen, Italy, and other institutions and scholars contributed reading materials for these workshops.

Additional Information:

This workshop is complemented by several opportunities for continued learning and professional support, including small grants to translate course materials, on-going mentoring and guest lectureships, and participation in in-depth short courses. As a result of cooperation between workshop organizers and select institutions, in 2009, workshop participants had the opportunity to apply to attend, free of cost, courses on "Human Rights, Minorities, and Diversity Management" (Module V of the Join Masters ion European Integration and Regionalism at EURAC) and "Minority Rights, Indigenous Peoples and Human Rights Law (Summer School at the Irish Center for Human Rights, Galway, Ireland). Participants might also be interested in diversity trainings of LGI's Managing Multiethnic Communities Program. For more on these

New Book: Building Peace. Practical Reflections From the Field

Edited by Craig Zelizer , Robert A. Rubinstein

"This volume provides an enlightening, encouraging, and fascinating set of reports about effective peacebuilding endeavors. These accounts and assessments were written by persons directly engaged in each undertaking and yield valuable lessons. Certainly, these highly diverse actions deserve widespread attention and frequent emulation."
-- Louis Kriesberg, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, Maxwell Professor Emeritus of Social Conflict Studies, Syracuse University

"Building Peace presents a rich set of case studies of courage in peacebuilding that should inspire another generation of peacemakers. The authors provide a great variety of blueprints for communities, nations and multi-cultural groups dealing with the aftermath or reduction of ongoing and often violent conflicts. That the case studies come from such diverse areas demonstrates that having multiple approaches and processes in our peacemaking toolkit makes peacebuilding possible in widely divergent cultural and geopolitical settings. There is much to be learned here for practitioners, students and teachers of peace. It will make a great contribution to courses on conflict resolution, prevention and handling and on post-conflict peacebuilding analysis and practice."
-- Carrie Menkel-Meadow, Professor of Law, Dispute Resolution and Civil Procedure, Georgetown University Law Center and author of Dispute Resolution: Beyond the Adversarial Model

"This book neatly brings together various methodologies, an impressive range of local and international settings and a number of time frames to give a powerful response to a real "demand" on peacebuilding today: How do we assess the successes (and failures) of what we do? Bravo to Drs. Craig Zelizer, Robert Rubinstein, their colleagues -- and to the Alliance for Peacebuilding in supporting this initiative."
-- William R. Headley, Dean, Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies, University of San Diego

Even though international peacebuilding has rapidly expanded in the last two decades to respond to more multi-faceted and complex conflicts, the field has lagged behind in documenting the impact and success of projects. To help address this gap, the Alliance for Peacebuilding, one of the leading networks in the field, has brought together 13 stories of innovative peacebuilding practices from around the world in Building Peace.

While the projects covered are diverse in nature, together they demonstrate the significant impact of peacebuilding work. Contributors created new institutions to prevent and manage conflicts at the local or national levels, helped restore relationships in conflict-affected communities, and empowered citizens to work for positive change in their societies across ethnic, religious, and political divides.

It's clear that there is no quick fix for violence but this volume will go a long way in providing inspiration and practical tools for policymakers, academics and practitioners who seek to make significant and valuable contributions towards achieving peace.

Craig Zelizer is the Associate Director of the Master of Arts in Conflict Resolution Program within the Department of Government at Georgetown University and a Senior Partner with the Alliance for Conflict Transformation. He has over 15 years experience in peacebuilding activities around the world, including assessment, training, dialogue, capacity building and evaluation work. He has published several articles on trauma and peacebuilding, arts and peacebuilding, and careers in international peace and conflict resolution. He is also the founder of the Peace and Collaborative Development Network, a leading online platform to bring together scholars and practitioners working on international conflict. He holds a Ph.D. in Conflict Analysis and Resolution from George Mason University.

Robert A. Rubinstein is professor of anthropology and international relations at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University, where from 1994-2005 he directed the Program on the Analysis and Resolution of Conflicts. He earned his Ph.D. in anthropology from the State University of New York at Binghamton, and his Ms.P.H. from the University of Illinois School of Public Health. His research focuses on cultural aspects of dispute settlement, international health, and the anthropological study of peacekeeping. He is a founding member and current Co-Chair of the Commission on Peace and Human Rights of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences. He has published more than 85 journal articles and book chapters and is author or editor of 7 books, most recently Peacekeeping Under Fire: Culture and Intervention.

CfP: Adriatic Frontiers [14th-19th cts.], Fiesole, 24-26.3.2010)

Workshop / 11th Mediterranean Research Meeting (MRM)

ADRIATIC FRONTIERS:
COMMUNICATIONS ACROSS CULTURES, SPACE AND TIME

Host: European University Institute (Florence).
Date: March 24-27, 2010.
Location: Montecatini Terme (near Florence).
Deadline for abstracts: July 15, 2009.
Bursaries: available.
Contact: Maximilian Hartmuth (hartmuth@su. sabanciuniv. edu); Amanda Phillips (amanda.phillips@ orinst.ox. ac.uk)
Keywords: Eastern Adriatic; Venice and the Ottoman Empire; Bosnia, Dalmatia, Albania, and Montenegro; Muslim, Christian, and Jewish cultures in the Mediterranean; commerce and cultural exchange; frontiers and borderlands; region and space.

CONCEPT
The workshop 揂driatic Frontiers: Communications Across Cultures, Space and Time� seeks to provide a forum for the study of the multifaceted history of a region that has remained on the margins, despite the increased interest in the Mediterranean. Although Fernand Braudel had early upheld the study of interactions of Catholic, Muslim, Christian Orthodox, and Jewish cultures on either side of political borders as a promising field of study, few efforts have been made since then for a greater understanding of the Adriatic, specifically, as an intercultural space. This zone of multiple frontiers has suffered from the fact that it is also on the periphery of specializations of Ottoman/Middle Eastern, Italian/European, and Balkans/South Slavic histories and their respective sources and literatures. Scattered efforts in recent scholarship, resulting in somewhat astonishing findings, have demonstrated that we are still far from understanding the workings of this space between, broadly, the 14th and 19th centuries. The proposed workshop seeks to bridge this gap by bringing together an international group of scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds who nonetheless share a common interest in intercultural aspects of the Adriatic space in the past. The proposed workshop will reframe earlier efforts in the quest to further future scholarship on the matter. The organizers strive to achieve a mixture of established scholars who have already made a lasting contribution to the field and younger historians who would benefit from the meeting in their future endeavours. (Please also see the full concept [3 pages] at
http://www.eui. eu/RSCAS/ Research/ Mediterranean/ mrm2010/desc_ pdf/MRM2010_ Ds11.pdf)

New Book: Das Jugoslawische Makedonien 1918-1941 [in German]

New book:

Nada Bo歬ovska: Das jugoslawische Makedonien 1918�1941. Eine Randregion zwischen Repression und Integration. Wien, B鰄lau 2009. (Zur Kunde S黡osteuropas II/39).
394 S., 15 s/w-Abb., 5 Karten, 35 Euro. ISBN: 978-3-205-78355- 8

1912/13 eroberte Serbien vom Osmanischen Reich Vardar-Makedonien, welches territorial etwa der heutigen Republik Makedonien entspricht; 1918 wurde dieses Gebiet Teil des neu gegr黱deten ersten Jugoslawien. Das Buch analysiert die Belgrader Politik gegen黚er Makedonien und die Reaktion darauf. Das vorrangige Ziel, in dieser auch von Bulgarien beanspruchten Region ein serbisches Nationalbewusstsein zu verankern, wurde in den 20er Jahren in erster Linie mit propagandistischer Rhetorik
und repressiven Mitteln verfolgt, w鋒rend in den 30ern vermehrt auch Investitionen ins Auge gefasst, aber kaum get鋞igt wurden. Das Buch schildert das beispielhafte Fiasko einer versuchten Zwangsintegration durch einen zentralistischen Staat, dem die Potenz und die Einsicht fehlten, die Regionen durch positive Angebote anzubinden.
