The EURINT conference series was launched in 2013 in the frame of the Jean Monnet Life Long Learning Programme. Since 2013 the EURINT conference has established itself as one of the most visible academic events in field of European Studies from Central and Eastern Europe and in this regard we are pleased to have managed to develop it into a traditional conference series. The EURINT conference package addresses those who show a genuine interest in enhancing their research skills in European Studies and in contributing to developing a transnational network of contacts and cooperation focusing on Central and Eastern Europe.EURINT Conference series usually comprise keynote lectures, panel debates involving international academic experts, followed by intensive Q&A sessions. The audience is strongly encouraged to take the floor and challenge speakers with their own views and reflections of the topic and, thus, add up to the debate. The academic programme also includes parallel academic sessions where conference participants (researchers, students, young professionals, etc.) are expected to deliver presentations of their most recent research. Due to a strong international presence, presented papers will benefit from invaluable discussion and feedback.
