      Call for papers:
      International Conference: Decentralisation of government and concepts of
      regionalisation Comparative Analysis and Practice in Southeast Europe (Case
      study: Autonomous Province of Voivodina)
      Subotica, Yugoslavia 15 - 17 March, 2001.
      Agency of Local Democracy, Subotica is convening an international conference
      to analyze, discuss and compare main aspects of decentralization of
      government, concepts and forms of regionalisation in Southeast Europe, with
      special regard to Voivodina, a region and autonomous province in the north
      of Yugoslavia.
      Recent profound democratic changes in the country have urged a need for
      reconstruction of entire state structure, thus opening up perspectives of
      regionalisation in Yugoslavia. This conference's main objective is to
      exchange views on various models of regionalisation in Europe (Southeast
      Europe in particular) and possibilities of redefinition of the concept of
      regional autonomy inherent to Voivodina and its long historic background.
      Beside legal, economic and political aspects, the following issues may also
      be examined:
      * local and regional democracy
      * management of local and regional self-government
      * devolution of powers
      * decision making at local and regional level
      * regionalisation and modernisation
      * regionalisation and multiethnicity
      Apart from the participants from Yugoslavia, invited are the experts from:
      Check Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina,
      Romania, Bulgaria. The 15 selected will be notified and asked to submit a
