Europe and Asia between Islam and the United States

6 December 2007 to 7 December 2007

La Trobe University, Melbourne

The Conference, convened by Joseph Camilleri, was a sequel to a number of other workshops and symposia that have been organised in collaboration with other institutions in Europe and Asia. They formed part of a larger research programme Europe and Asia between Islam and the United States: The Politics of Transition.

This Conference focused on the interaction of three key dualities:

• the juxtaposition of the European and Asian experiences, with particular reference to the role of regional institutions;
• the relationship between culture and religion on the one hand and geopolitics on the other;
• the complex nexus between the domestic and international dimensions of conflict and dialogue across major religious and cultural traditions.
The Conference was jointly sponsored by:
  • The Centre for Dialogue, La Trobe University
  • The Innovative Universities European Union Centre
  • Contemporary Europe Research Centre, University of Melbourne
  • Università degli Studi di Napoli “L'Orientale”, Naples, Italy
  • The Institute for Social Ethics, Nanzan University, Nagoya, Japan
  • The Institute of International Relations, Warsaw University, Poland
  • The Cold War Studies Centre, London School of Economics (UK)
