New publication: Changing Identities in South Eastern Europe

29. Aug. 2012

Between Europeanisation, Globalisation, Regionalisation, and Nationalism

In cooperation with the Centre for Social Innovation in Vienna, the Austrian Science and Research Liaison Office Ljubljana announced in 2010 its seventh call for proposals for projects in research cooperation and networking between institutions in Austria, Slovenia, and the Western Balkan countries (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, FYR of Macedonia, Kosovo under UNSCR 1244 /1999, Montenegro, and Serbia). The call focused on intensifying short-term cooperation in the scientific field of “Changing Identities in South Eastern Europe: Between Europeanisation, Globalisation, Regionalisation, and Nationalism,” with the aim of supporting the development of long-term scientific collaboration and to gain scientific insight in changing identities in South Eastern Europe. Funding was provided by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research within the framework of its South Eastern European Science Cooperation Initiative. Six projects have been funded from this call, and the outcomes were presented at a conference which took place in May 2011 in Vienna. This publication presents some outcomes of the funded projects and it also includes other papers reflecting the subject. It addresses current changing processes, analyses, as well as historical developments in South Eastern Europe by having a closer look at various selected aspects which describe the complex nature of territorial identification in the areas of conflict between Europeanisation, globalisation, regionalisation, and nationalism.
