:: CONFERENCE/DEBATE :: 9th Lodz East Asia Meeting “Central Europe and East Asia”
06 June 2013 > 07 June 2013
The conference is an annual gathering of scholars interested in Asian affairs, especially their political and economic aspects. After the 2012 edition’s success, when over 30 foreign guests participated (among others, from Japan, China, Taiwan, USA, Russia, Germany, Slovakia, Czech Republic) we wish to continue the Lodz East Asia Meeting as an international event. This way it gives a valuable opportunity for the exchange of ideas between scholars from different countries. This is of significant importance to young researchers, who always make up a significant number of the participants. For them, it represents a chance to develop international contacts and become more familiar with different methodological approaches.

:: CALL FOR PAPERS :: Security, Borders and Mobility
05 April 2013 > 31 May 2013
This summer school will engage with questions of fundamental rights and liberties in relation to security, borders and mobility. The questions addressed will include:
1. What is the relation between security and liberties? Should we seek to find an appropriate balance between security and liberties, or is it a question of political judgment to untie liberty from security?
2.Where is the location of borders? What is the relation between territorial, legal and technological borders? Are borders specific sites for security measures? What is their impact on liberties? And conversely what are the liberties which structure our understanding of the role of borders?
3. Who is mobile/ immobile? What are the criteria applied to distinguish between desired and undesired movement? What is the relation between mobility, freedom of circulation and speed? What is the relation between mobility, information gathering on travelers and differential forms of surveillance?
