Central and Eastern European Forum of Young Legal, Political and Social Theorists

Welcome on the website of the Central and Eastern European Forum of Young Legal, Political and Social Theorists (CEE Forum). The CEE Forum is a platform for the exchange of experience and ideas as well as for the development of sustainable contacts and ties among young scholars sharing similar interests, thereby transcending traditional institutional and disciplinary boundaries alike. The work of the CEE Forum concentrates on three fields: the organization of Annual Conferences, the publication of a Yearbook with a selection of the best conference contributions, and the provision of this Website as a permanent platform for the exchange of information.
