7-9 December 2012: International Conference: Contemporary approaches to Cold War and Post-Cold War Balkans: main themes, open questions, unresolved debates, Belgrade

 

A new step in the JHP begins on Friday December 7th  with the opening of this event supported by USAID and the ISC, carefully preparing the grounds for addressing sensitive historical issues following the JHP methodology and principles.

This international conference includes HEC members and around 30 well-known individuals (experts from international institutions, opinion makers and high profile academia from Europe and the US) to discuss how to present the history of the more recent times. Topics will include: the Cold War in the Balkans, Nationalism under Communism, Collapse and Reconstruction after 1989, History and Myths on Cold War and Post-Cold War Balkans. Plans will first be discussed with international and Southeast European historians and at a later stage, teachers, the general public and policy makers will be included in the development process.
