ESCAS joins “Eurasian Insights” for a conference in Ghent (march 2021)

ESCAS is teaming up with an Erasmus+ Strategic partnership for higher education called “Eurasian Insights” (co-funded by the European Union).

The “Eurasian Insights” conference will be held in Ghent (Belgium) from Wednesday 10 to Friday 12 March 2021. The purposes of the event are threefold:

  • Firstly, to bring together scholars, students, interested members of the public and policymakers working on (or interested in!) the Central Asian region. The prupose is to interact and strengthen a network of Central Asia-related research and education in Europe.
  • Secondly, to show, by examining its identities and historical roots, societal and political dynamics, external interactions, economy and environment, that the Central Asian region is not merely a passive object in abstract geopolitics, but that it also has histories, societies, identities and aspirations of its own.
  • Thirdly, examine what (potential) effects and impacts of developments in Central Asia, a region situated right beyond Europe’s eastern rim, have on the EU / Europe in general (and vice-versa).

The call for applications closes on 20 October 2020 (click here to visit the website, discover the draft program and apply)
