About 450 scientists from 22 countries – US, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, Georgia, Ukraine, and Poland are taking part in it in order to discuss the results of their researches over one year.
Let us recall that the Congress is the chief event of the academic and expert community, traditionally organized by the Institute for Policy Studies Palіtychnaya Sphera (Political Sphere). The work of science sections and panels will be taking place in the Vytautas Magnus University.
This time the focus of attention will be given not only to Belarus, but to the whole region of Central and Eastern Europe. In the run of three days wide problematics – from economy, politics, and international relations to history, linguistics and cultural problems – will be discussed.
The Congress will dedicate much attention to safety issues, informed one of the organizers of the Congress, Andrei Kazakevich, the director of the Institute for Policy Studies Palіtychnaya Sphera (Political Sphere). It is related to the tendencies in our region – Ukrainian events and increased tension between Russia and the West in general. Several panels will be dedicated to this problem. The Congress will also examine the problems related to the European integration and migration in Belarus and in our region.
There will also be a special section dedicated to the history of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The priorities of this section are also changing in comparison with the former years. Just as earlier, a section dedicated to development of religion and churches with a bias towards wars, conflicts, and churches’ role in that will be working at the Congress.
International panel is presented for polemics of specialists of basically all spheres of social and political and humanitarian disciplines – both for discussion and for receiving information.
