 Six decades of the Past 

Six decades for the Future

An International conference celebrating 60 years of teaching and researching International Relations in Slovenia 

Call for papers and panels 

University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences, 8 and 9 October 2021 (online) 

This conference aims to capture both the past and the present, in the light of the challenges that the world has overcome or is yet to overcome. This is an open call, to our alumni who build their successful careers at universities both at home and abroad; to our friends with whom we have shared many working hours writing articles and books, founding international institutions; and to everyone who would wish to take some time to honour us with sharing their expertise, their critical thinking and knowledge and thus help us celebrate our anniversary. In this respect, we are proud to share the stage and partnership with the Central and East European International Studies Association (CEEISA), which since its creation in the 1990s has been an integral part of the IR community in Slovenia, and vice versa. 

As this is the celebration of the IR discipline, we do not wish to make any restrictions concerning topics. Given the focus of our IR study programmes at the undergraduate, MA, and Ph.D. levels, we particularly welcome paper and panel proposals dealing with history, international politics, IR theory, international political economy, international economic relations, politics of international law, international organisations, human rights, development studies, international security and conflict management, migration, the role of education (teaching of IR), international environmental politics, EU studies (history, politics, and policies, EU as a global actor), regional studies and global governance. 

This will be an online conference, via the Zoom platform. Please apply, by filling out an application form, with a paper title, 300-word abstract, and up to four keywords. Or, if you plan to submit a panel or a roundtable: title of the panel/roundtable, convenor, a 300-word abstract (introducing the panel), up to four keywords, and a list of proposed panelists, Please include the following information with your submission: (a) full name, (b) institutional affiliation, (c) country of an institution, (d) email address. In case you submit a panel/roundtable, kindly include short descriptions of individual presentations (title of the paper, author of the presentation, a short abstract, and up to four keywords).

The deadline to send your proposal is 31 July 2021. The procedure to consider your proposal is the following: within up to three weeks after the deadline has expired, the Programme Chair will inform you if your proposal has been accepted.
