Summer Seminar on
Searching for a decent international society
Vama Veche, Romania
15 - 20 August 2011
One of LIEIS’ constant themes of research and debate has been the European
integration process as well as developments in the wider Europe and in the world

at large. The topics have been explored for the last 17 years under the form
of summer schools organized by the Institute in cooperation with the Black Sea
University Foundation, and, later on, with the European Cultural Centre in

The ambition of the 2011 seminar is to have a critical look at the international

society, the political, economic, cultural and strategic relations, the
structures and mechanisms, the distribution of power and wealth. Is the system
sufficiently just, does it allow a fair access to material and non-material
resources? Does it provide adequately for the maintenance of peace? What are the

dominating values and what should they be: tolerance, empathy, solidarity? Are
new institutions for global governance required?
- students, young researchers and professionals from both Eastern and Western

political parties, of NGO’s, of the mass media.
