We are glad to welcome You to the joint Miami University Havighurst Center for Russian and Post-Soviet Studies and Vilnius University Institute of International Relations and Political Science conference "Statehood and its Discontents: Russia, Eastern Europe and Eurasia" which will take place on June 15-18 (Vokieciu str. 10, conference hall 402).

In the post-Cold War era territorial borders have been continuously contested during the wars in Chechnya, the Caucasus, and more recently Ukraine. The conflict in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine has brought the questions of statehood and sovereignty again to the forefront of popular, political, and scholarly debates. This conference explores historical and contemporary challenges to statehood and emergence of alternative sovereignty and governance regimes.
