The year of 2018 marks the centenary of the end of the First World War when the principle of self-determination entered center stage and led to the creation of several European soverign entities. This international conference centers upon the comparative evolution of the nation state – as both concept and lived-in reality – in contemporary Europe. By focusing on reconcilliation, scholars and practitioners will discuss the trajectory of the nation state, since the Trianon Treaty and throughout 100 years of transformations, including but not limited to the effects of EU integration on re-shaping political communities.
