The Centre de recherche Europes-Eurasie (INALCO) and Memory Lab (Sarajevo), in cooperation with Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso Transeuropa (Trento), are orgnaizing the international workshop "Citizens’ commitment and transnational solidarity in Europe at the turn of the 1990s: from Poland to Bosnia-Herzegovina" which will take place on 1st July 2021 in Paris and online.
Citizens' mobilisations for a cause in Eastern Europe are a blind spot in the study of social movements but left their mark on France, Germany, Italy, Belgium and other Western European countries in the 1980s and 1990s. Looking back at this recent history in a comparative and interdisciplinary approach is an opportunity to take stock of both the transformations of activism and how the history of the post-1989 period has been written. Bringing together historians, sociologists and political scientists working in several European countries, this workshop will also provide an opportunity for dialogue between activists and scholars during the concluding round table.
