The International Council for Central and East European Studies was founded in 1974 as an international body that could bring together national associations from around the world which were engaged in Russian, Central and East European, and Eurasian Studies. Representatives from 29 different countries participated in the founding conference, mostly from Western Europe and North America.
Since then, the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union led to a huge expansion of participation in the activities of ICCEES. The five yearly ICCEES congresses as well as regular regional congresses are now truly global events.
In recognition of ICCEES’ mission to promote international collaboration in scholarship across the world, the Executive Committee is asking for nominations for an award for an international network of scholars which has demonstrated an outstanding contribution to ICCEES’ aim of global cooperation in scholarship. The winners of the award will be announced at the 2020 World Congress of ICCEES in Montreal, and will be awarded €2,000 for the future work of the network.
Nominations should be submitted via the form on the ICCEES website by 31st January 2020.
