As part of AUP's 60th-anniversary academic event series, the George and Irina Schaeffer Center for the Study of Genocide, Human Rights and Conflict Prevention invites you to virtually attend the international conference Reinventing/Reconstructing Cosmopolitanism in Contested Spaces and Post-Conflict Zones.

The purpose of this international conference is to encourage a multi and transdisciplinary discussion on the challenge of cultivating inclusive civic and social spaces at a moment when difference is ubiquitously threatened by exclusionary ethno-nationalisms, the construction of material and symbolic walls of separation, spaces of conflict, and violence-laden representations of the essential alienness of cultural, political, and religious others.

The conference will critically examine this problem in various socio-spatial and temporal contexts and broaden the scope to reflections on the necessary rethinking/reinvention/reconstitution of cosmopolitan space(s) challenged by social conflicts, war and/or mass violence.

This conference is organized in partnership with The Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory (University of Belgrade), The Center for Advanced Studies Southeast Europe (University of Rijeka-Cres), the Centre de relations internationales (SciencesPo-CERI) and The Faculty of Media and Communications (Belgrade).
