The Albanian American Organization Chameria is an nonprofit organization of Albanian-American citizens who are born in Chameria (northwestern Greece) and individuals of Cham descent that have as main mission the resolution of the Chameria issue.

The post-WWII and post-Cold War period have been a period of ethnic conflict, which, amongst other things has manifested itself in the ways of wars and continuous tensions in Southeastern Europe. After Kosovo's independence, how has the continuous presence of Chameria issue affected the regional peace in the region, and more broadly what can be done to achieve a peaceful solution to the ethnic Albanians issue in the Balkans? Abstracts or paper drafts are welcomed on topics that are specific or relevant to the Chameria issue or other ethnic minorities in Greece, and Greek-Albanian relations in general. Special guest panelists will include Prof. James Pettifer from the UK, member of the Oxford University History Faculty & St Cross College and Stanley J. Seeger Research Fellow at Princeton University; Prof. Sali Bollati, and other international academics and representatives.

Admission to the event is free. All inquiries regarding program details should be sent to: <>
