IAIS and Politics Postgraduate Conference

Research in Times of Change and Uncertainty

The Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies and the Politics Department of the University of Exeter will be holding a conference on 23-24 May 2016 to address the current state of uncertainty in Europe, the Middle East and world, and to understand how we, as researchers, should conduct our work within these complex dynamics.

Event details

The current political events are fostering new paradigms for the study of emerging challenges on both sides of the Mediterranean.  Borders and domestic politics no longer pose limits for the interconnected world we live in.  The Syrian crisis spilled over in its neighbouring states, and waves of refugees escaping the violence and seeking asylum in Europe are testing host countries and the European project itself.  At the same time, non-state actors, such as Daesh, are well positioned to confront the perceived and long-established paradigm of security in Europe since the end of World War II.
