Searching for a decent international society
Vama Veche, Romania
15 – 20 August 2011
The Luxembourg Institute for European and International Studies (LIEIS) is a forum of academic and intellectual discussions and research, as well as a platform of training and upgrading for undergraduates and young professionals from both western and eastern countries.
One of LIEIS’ constant themes of research and debate has been the European integration process as well as developments in the wider Europe and in the world at large. The topics have been explored for the last 17 years under the form of summer schools organized by the Institute in cooperation withthe Black Sea University Foundation, and, later on, with the European Cultural Centre in Romania.
The ambition of the 2011 seminar is to have a critical look at the international society, the political, economic, cultural and strategic relations, the structures and mechanisms, the distribution of power and wealth. Is the system sufficiently just, does it allow a fair access to material and non-material resources? Does it provide adequately for the maintenance of peace? What are the dominating values and what should they be: tolerance, empathy, solidarity? Are new institutions for global governance required?
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
– students, young researchers and professionals from both Eastern and Western Europe
– young representatives of higher education, of specialized institutions, of political parties, of NGO’s, of the mass media.
