Since 2011, this conference brings together experts interested in study of geopolitics to meet in the beautiful city of Prague and talk about major issues in the field.
Topic: Geopolitical landscape Thirty Years after Democratization
Date: 8th November 2019
Location: TBC (Prague)
Call for Abstracts: Thirty years ago, the world went through a period of rapid changes towards democratization. As the Eastern European countries commemorate the events of 1989, it is crucial to understand, that a similar progress at a similar time also took place in the Asia-Pacific region. The topic of the 9th Annual conference is thus to examine the geopolitical changes in the regions that went through a process of democratization by the end of 1980s/beginning of 1990s and compare the experiences from post-Communist Europe and Asia-Pacific region 30 years after.
Call for abstracts is opened until the 31st August 2019. In case of an interest, please send your abstract at .
