CALL FOR CONFERENCE PAPERS
As the health crisis proves that national blueprints are of little use in the face of a pandemic that does not understand borders, we have launched a digital platform that aspires to be a meeting place for the exchange of ideas. In this forum, we will discuss topics in history, international relations, political science, sociology, etc.
