Therefore, We would like to ask you for your support in promoting this event. A key goal is to contribute in a substantial way to the study of violence and to catalyze the growth of the study of violence as a field. It is led by from the most prestigious institutions such as Humboldt University of Berlin, Central European University (Budapest), the University of Birmingham, the University of Manchester, the University of Pennsylvania, Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest) and the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, targeting students and graduates of Political and Social Science, History, Ethnic and Religious Studies, Philology, Journalism & other related disciplines.

We believe that the success we had in the previous seminars Nationalism, Religion and Violence in SE Europe in Thessaloniki in 2013, 2015 and 2017 and Nationalism, Religion and Violence in Europe in Prague in 2014 and 2016 will enable us to continue educating intellectual elites in the region and globally as well as stimulating intercultural understanding.
