Conflict and Cooperation in the Interdependent World

The “Annual Asia and the Middle East Conference” aims at creating a platform of communication between academia and expert community to broaden the understanding of political processes in Eurasia. We hope to widen knowledge on such issues as: international trade and politics, international rivalry and conflicts, geopolitical power shifts and its regional manifestations. We intend to create an unique event, that will offer both knowledge generation as well as presentation of newest and inspiring research for the participants.
