[ Call for Papers ]

The 5th CEU Graduate Conference in Social Sciences calls for papers for "Old Challenges in a New Era: Development and Participation" to be held 19-21 June, 2009 at Central European University, Budapest, Hungary. Deadline for submissions: April 15, 2009.

2009 represents a crucial year which is testing our ability to deal with substantial political and economic challenges. Bringing a continuation of the economic crisis, the deepening of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a new American administration, and a severe energy crisis for several of the EU members, this period is proves to be a problematic reality check for our policies and theories. Reality proves to be one more time ahead of scholars' conceptualizations, politicians' capabilities, and policy-makers' solutions. With the many challenges ahead, we hope to generate interdisciplinary academic debates that tackle relevant topics in their fields of research. At the same time, we hope to connect different perspectives and approaches in order to produce high standard academic works.

The organizers encourage graduate students and young faculty to contribute with papers on multiple topics. Details available at www.ceu.hu/polscijournal. The working language of the conference is English.

Financial support: There is no registration fee for qualified participants. Food and accommodation are provided by the organizers. Applicants can apply for a partial travel grant for the cheapest means of transportation. Those intending to apply for a travel grant should write a short letter of justification (up to 300 words).

Accepted applicants will be notified by April 30, 2008.

The paper applications consist of:

  • Completed application form (available on the website)
  • Short CV (maximum 2 pages)
  • (Optional) Applicants for travel grant: Short letter for justification (up to 300 words)
