Are you a little confused about what’s going on in Crimea right now? Perhaps you’ve heard about Scotland trying to secede from the UK, but you don’t understand why. Or maybe you want to better understand how the dissolution of Yugoslavia has impacted the present-day situation in the Balkans. All of these topics will be addressed at a CCSDD-sponsored conference this Monday: “Centralism or Secession? Decentralized States in the Face of the Economic Crisis”. The event will also feature talks on the Catalan secession movement in Spain, the role of religion in Canadian federalism, and the tensions between the Flemings and Walloons of Belgium.
The event will be held in Italian and English, and will feature talks by the CCSDD researchers Justin Frosini, Carna Pistan, and Susana Mancini, as well as other academics and practioners from across Europe.
The conference will take place on Monday, 12 May 2014 from 8:45 – 17:30 at Via Belmeloro 10, Bologna (Scuola di Specializzazione in Studi sull’Amministrazione Pubblica at the University of Bologna).
