27 Mar 2015 08:30-11:00 - PRIO, Hausmanns gate 7, Oslo

​​2015 promises to be a dramatic year for Afghanistan’s relationship with its neigbours, not primarily as a result of the international military drawdown (as most observers have predicted), but due to the new initiatives of an energetic President Ashraf Ghani, as well as the dramatic rise of the Islamic State and the strained relations between Russia and the West over Ukraine.

This Breakfast Seminar is part of the Afghanistan Week 2015. Follow this link for complete programme.

Thu, 14 May 2015 - Basque Country

​In this workshop we will investigate assertions and demands for sovereignty in the Basque Country. We will look at their dynamics and trajectories, and consider their social contexts and the collective consciousness that has produced various imaginations of sovereignty. We will identify combinations of political, cultural, economic and institutional factors and related mobilizations that have propagated or reacted against claims and assertions of Basque sovereignty. Finally we will interrogate how these mobilizations have been guided by and in turn defined particular forms of imaginations of national sovereignty.
