The 3rd Hellenic Observatory PhD Symposium

Contemporary Greece: Structures, Context and Challenges

14 & 15 June 2007 London School of Economics and Political Science

Call for Papers

We invite submissions for the 3rd PhD symposium on 'Contemporary Greece: Structures, Context and Challenges'. A main objective of the symposium is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas between young scholars currently undertaking research on Greece. The 3rd symposium, as with the previous two, is intended to help graduate research students to overcome the academic isolation associated to PhD research, to 'try' their ideas and findings on wider audiences, and to establish new collaborative links across disciplines. Researchers will also be able to 'engage' with a wider academic community, including academic members of staff at the LSE, and also a number of other distinguished scholars who will act as keynote speakers and discussants to the symposium.

We welcome contributions from research students (current and recent) across any field of the Social Sciences and Humanities whose PhD focuses on contemporary Greece. The topics covered in the symposium include, but are not limited to:

Media and Public Perceptions

Foreign Policy

Public Policy (including welfare, education, and social policies)

Economic Policy (including labour market, industrial, and regional policies)

Economic Problems and Performance (including macro/micro economics and finance)

Greece and Southeast Europe (including economic and political cooperation and energy)

Domestic and EU politics

Migration and Minorities

History and Culture

State and Society

Abstracts of 500 words maximum must be submitted via the 'paper proposal' form. Abstracts should indicate the academic significance of the topic, relevance of conceptual literature, and analytical structure. A limited number of travel grants of 200 maximum will be available to the contributors. The deadline for the submission of the abstracts and for application for the travel grants is 12 March 2007. Postgraduates can apply for the travel grant by filling the appropriate section of the 'paper proposal' form. The 'paper proposal' form can be downloaded from: Submissions can be made by email only to:

Successful applicants will be notified by mid-April and will be requested to submit their full paper by 1 June 2007.
