Global and Regional Geopolitical Trends, Migration

Panel Discussion
The CEU Campus
Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

The event is organised by the CEU Project "Migration and Security in the Post-Soviet Space" in the framework of the first meeting of " Academy of Dialogue: promoting intercultural understanding in Central and Eastern Europe through scientific cooperation". Academics and representatives of NGOs are discussing the main problems of mutual understanding in Central and Eastern Europe. It seems that after 1991 every country in the region is trying to create its own vision of the past and interpret contemporary socio-economic processes through its own discourse. The views of different countries are often divergent or even diametrically opposite. The aim of this workshop is to look at current social reality from different points of view in order to foster the development of a common approach to the current problems facing the region.
