2019 will mark the 20th anniversary of the NATO intervention in the Federal Republic of
Yugoslavia (FRY), and the end of the Kosovo war. This is taken as an opportunity to reflect
on the role, importance and impact of military interventions, by presenting the dialogue
between the diverse, often opposed interpretations of the NATO Intervention in FRY which have emerged during the last twenty years, when considering its role, political consequences and meaning on the local, regional and global scales.
Considering the diversity of disciplines, approaches and topics already addressed in the
literature, the workshop aims at bringing together scholars and activists (both from the region and abroad) from various disciplines such as History, Political Sciences, International Law, Sociology, Anthropology, Memory and Cultural Studies, to discuss the local, regional and global aspects of the NATO intervention and its twenty-year-old heritage.
All scholars and activists interested in participating in the workshop are invited to submit an abstract (300-500 words) and a short biography to the conference organizers, Katarina Ristic ([email protected]) and Elisa Satjukow ([email protected]), by 15th January 2019.
Notifications of acceptance will be sent by 15th February 2019. Full papers (8,000 words)
should be submitted by 15th May 2019. An edited volume of the workshop is planned.
Two nights’ accommodation and travel costs (up to 200 EUR) will be covered by the
organizers. Workshop will take place in Leipzig, 23-25 May 2019.
