Call for Papers: Young Researchers Conference

“Europe in Crisis: Challenges and Opportunities”

The Monash European and EU Centre is calling for papers for the annual Young Researchers Conference from 22-23 September 2011.

The Monash European and EU Centre’s Young Researchers Conference ‘Europe in Crisis: Challenges and Opportunities’ seeks to explore dramatic events affecting Europe and the challenges and opportunities that they present from both a contemporary and an historical perspective. It aims to examine these from both external and internal perspectives, providing a wide range of views and insights.

The conference is multi-disciplinary in nature and aims to incorporate as many fields as possible in exploring the overall theme. The main emphases of the conference include:

  • Political: the EU Constitutional crisis; NATO intervention in Libya; the Arab Spring; the Roma in Europe;
  • Economic: Global Financial Crisis; Euro-zone crisis; market reforms in Eastern Europe; trade and the developing world;
  • Environmental: climate change; energy; fishing; marine environment.

The conference brings together young researchers from Australia, New Zealand, the wider Asia- Pacific, and Europe to present their research in a collegial environment, and foster the professional and academic development of the next generation of researchers on Europe in political studies, economics, anthropology and law.

Abstracts of approximately 300 words should be submitted by Friday 22 July 2011 to europecentre@monash.edu

Successful applicants will be notified by email by the end of July.

There is limited funding available for travel and accommodation expenses for selected participants. If you wish to be considered for the bursaries, please indicate in your abstract submission and also attach a CV and list of publications. The two best papers have the chance to be published in a special section of the Australian and New Zealand Journal of European Studies.
