We have the honor to inform you about the first international conference organized by the Albanian American Organization Chameria and Kean University’s Human Rights Institute held in New Jersey, USA on November 12, 2011 at Kean University. The theme of the conference is:

Chameria Issue: International Perspectives and Insights for a Peaceful Resolution

AAOC's First International Conference on Chameria
... Saturday, November 12, 2011

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 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. Detailed program information will be published soon.
