Main topic

The conference is a platform for presenting findings of research on contemporary challenges faced by the Old Continent, primarily current and expected phenomena and processes that determine its further development. The 20th conference of the series, held on 6-7 February 2020, will attempt to discuss, among other things, the following:

  • internal and external political, economic, social, cultural, mental and other factors that determine the development of Europe and the EU;
  • sources and intensity of processes having impact on the efficiency of integration and quality of social life in its various dimensions (e.g. crisis of liberal democracy, Brexit, migration, public debt, growth of extreme social movements, climate challenges etc.);
  • impact of those processes on the status of Europe, European Union and member states;
  • changes of state borders, ways of counteracting the process, and the influence on the future European integration;
  • effects of the previous EU policy aimed at mitigating the division of Europe, including the fifteenth anniversary of the EU enlargement by Poland and other states;

  • threats to the development of Europe in general, and the EU in particular, which originate in its surrounding (e.g. Middle East, North Africa, post-Soviet states);
  • cooperation between the EU and its partners (e.g. US, Canada, Russia, Central Asia, post-Soviet states, China, Turkey and Iran) to secure relevant conditions for development;
  • role of traditional and new mass communication centres in promoting the European integration and cooperation, and overcoming prejudices, stereotypes and crisis situations;
  • desired and alternative directions of changes in EU legal and institutional frameworks to enhance its efficiency in overcoming barriers to development and related to it tasks for politicians, scientists, media and journalists;
  • scientific categories and methods supporting research on issues covered by the conference.

The language of the conference is Polish. All presentations and the discussion during the plenary session will be interpreted simultaneously into English and Russian. The conference agenda includes panels run in both languages. Organizers offer conference attendees accommodation, boarding and possibility to publish their papers, subject to the approval by reviewers.
