Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM) is organising 7th Young Scholars Forum 2020. As stated on their website, they are looking for ''a maximum of 20 young scholars working on Central and South Eastern Europe in the fields of peace research and security policy, cultural studies, political sciences, economy, geography, sociology, media studies and history to contribute with their research to the analysis of the afore-mentioned issues and to find a common narrative that would held the future Europe together.''
The aims of the forum are listed as following:
- Promoting and encouraging young scholars to engage with Central and South East Europe
- Presentation of research by young scholars to a wider public
- Exchange among young and more advanced researchers on topics, methods, sources and results
- Furthering mobility within the region
- Publication of research contributions in the IDM scientific journal "Der Donauraum"
The forum itself is organised as a 3-day event, where 20 young researchers from all over Europe are to present and discuss their research work related to the topic of the Forum, as well as to network among themselves. The conference will take place on the first two days under the direction of experts within four thematically different panels:
- Europe as an area of peace and stability
- Europe as a space of cultural diversity
- Europe as a global actor
- If not the EU, is there/has there been an alternative?
The third day is designated for further exchange among participants during a thematically appropriate social programme in Vienna and Lower Austria.
The application deadline is September 30, 2020.
