The PRIO Centre in Cyprus launched a call for papers to be presented at their annual conference from 26-27 October 2012 in Nicosia, Cyprus.
Papers should address the issues, both theoretically and empirically, in the European Union, the Western Balkans, the Caucasus, North Africa and the Near East. The organisers are particularly interested in papers that link good governance with issues relating to social unrest and/or various forms of conflict, including themes such as:
--The role of “good governance” in the Arab Spring and its aftermath;
--Empirical and/or theoretical studies of governance in the EU crisis;
--Good governance, citizenship and practices of migration;
--Gender, equity and governance;
--The role of governance in regional conflicts and their resolutions;
--Empirical studies of governance in north and south Cyprus;
--The role of Internet and other media in governance today.
Please send a short biography and an abstract of no more than 250 words to Dr. Rebecca Bryant, firstname.lastname@example.org, by 20 June 2012.
Only selected abstracts will be informed by 30 June. Participants may expect that part of their costs will be covered, with priority given to students and recent recipients of the Ph.D.
