Dear members, 

I am a Research Fellow at the Institute of Geography of the Univesity

of Edinburgh.

I am trying to put together a panel on informal economies for the next

ICCEES World Congress (I attach the call below).

In my current research project I look at the way under-the-table

practices have a role in the economic development of Ukraine and Turkey. 

If anybody working on:

-social and economic informal networks

-bribe/gift giving, corruption, favours

-fiscal frauds, taxes, smuggling

-remittances, border crossing

or any other related topic 

wants to attend the ICCEES I would be glad to hear from him/her

you contact me at

Thank you and best wishes 


CONF./CFP- ICCEES World Cong. - Int'l Council for Central & East Eur.

Dear Colleagues:


We have the honour to invite the international academic community to

the VIII ICCEES World Congress in Stockholm 2010, to participate in a

wide scholarly discussion with the overriding theme:


Eurasia: Prospects for Wider Cooperation


Call for Proposals


The VIII World Congress of the International Council for Central and

East European Studies will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, on 26-31

July 2010.


The Swedish Society for the Study of Russia, Central and Eastern

Europe and Central Asia invites all interested scholars to submit

proposals for panels, papers and round-table discussions. These

proposals should reflect the results of new research in the study of

developments in the cultural, political, social and economic processes

underway in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.


While acknowledging the ongoing European integration processes, the

VIII World Congress is convened at a time when the international

situation poses new security challenges, requiring the elaboration of

new strategies. The Congress seeks to organize a wide scholarly

discussion of these developments. The processes of European

integration and wider cooperation across Eurasia not only impact upon

geographical spaces but also leave their mark upon cultural spaces.

These processes make communication between languages, histories,

religions, traditions, legacies and memories more complex. Humanities

and social science scholars are therefore invited to reflect on how

local cultural contexts react to, engage in, or resist globalization.
