Conference “Statehood and its Discontents: Russia, Eastern Europe and Eurasia”
15-17 June, 2016, Vilnius, Lithuania
Joint Miami University Havighurst Center for Russian and Post-Soviet Studies and Vilnius University Institute of International Relations and Political Science Conference “Statehood and its Discontents: Russia, Eastern Europe and Eurasia” on June 15-17, 2016, Vilnius University Institute of International Relations and Political Science.
In the post-Cold War era territorial borders have been continuously contested during the wars in Chechnya, the Caucasus, and more recently Ukraine. The conflict in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine has brought the questions of statehood and sovereignty again to the forefront of popular, political, and scholarly debates. This conference explores historical and contemporary challenges to statehood and emergence of alternative sovereignty and governance regimes. The potential topics include, but are not limited to: hybrid warfare, financial sovereignty, radical politics, nationalism, supranationalism, terrorism, secessionism, migration and displacement, memory and identity. Keynote speakers: Karen Dawisha (Miami University), Ramūnas Vilpišauskas (Vilnius University) and Artemyi Troitsky.
