The symposium on “Circassians in the 21st Century: Problems and Opportunities”, organized by Caucasian Research, Culture and Solidarity Foundation (KAF-DAV) will be held on 22-25 September 2011.
The aim of the symposium is to discuss the demographical, social, cultural, economic, and political situation of Circassians living in different parts and countries of the world, assess their chances and opportunities, and put forward proposals on the future within the light of historical and scientific data. It is expected that the symposium will contribute to the analysis of the current situation of Circassians and to raise awareness on the subject within scientific and political circles at international and national levels.
Issues such as the migrations and the exiles of Circassians, their demographical structures, socio-economic and political problems, preservation and improvement of their language and cultural heritages will be discussed throughout the symposium.
Participation of relevant individuals and institutions to the symposium is expected particularly from scientific circles at international and national levels. There will be conferences of keynote speakers, discussion sessions, and paper presentations in the symposium programme. Symposium papers will be published.
The symposium will be in English, Turkish, and Russian languages; necessary translation services will be provided.
We are expecting your participation either as presenters or observers.
