      UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON
      School of Slavonic and East European Studies
      POST-KOSOVO BALKANS: PERSPECTIVES ON RECONCILIATION
      Workshop organized by Centre for South East European Studies (CSEES) and
      Nash Albanian Studies Programme
      A one-day workshop on reconciliation in the Balkans is to be held at
      School of Slavonic and East European Studies, UCL, on 18 March 2000. The
      participants will address the issue of reconciliation from a perspective of
      political theory, anthropology and history. The aim of the workshop is to
      present relevant
      current research and to address following questions: What is
      reconciliation? Can and should theories of reconciliation developed in
      relation to other conflict and post-conflict areas (eg. Northern Ireland,
      South Africa) be applied to the Balkans? Is reconciliation in the Balkans
      possible and how to achieve it?
      For more details contact the convenors: Dejan Djokic, PhD candidate and
      History Tutor, SSEES/UCL (d.djokic@...) or Stephanie
      Schwandner-Sievers, Alex Nash Teaching Fellow in Albanian Studies,
