Following up on the Symposia held in Leiden in 2004 and in Oxford in 2006, a third Joint Graduate Symposium dedicated to Eastern Christianity in Context was held at Leiden University on 21st May 2011. The Symposium brought together graduate students from the three participating universities whose research subjects involve any of the Oriental Christian cultures.

The aim of the Symposium is for excellent students working in Eastern Christianity at leading European universities preparing for a doctoral or masters degree to present current research and to facilitate and stimulate exchange of information and scholarly debate. This has proven to be highly valued by participants in the first two Symposia, supported by the Europaeum: direct intellectual exchange combined with enlarging and deepening one’s network with colleagues in Eastern Christian Studies is considered extremely helpful by the graduates in their formation as well-connected scholars who have tested their research with peers as well as senior scholars, and are au fait with research currently carried out in other areas of the field.

The European Political Concepts Research Group, originally sponsored by the Europaeum, will be holding its sixth follow-up meeting in Berlin on Defining Political Concepts in Europe, on December 10-11th, kindly sponsored through the Finnish Institute in Berlin. The Group, conceived in 2006, has been busy exploring how different key concepts in political philosophy can hold very different, contextualised meanings in different countries or regions or sectors or times, of Europe and of European society. At this meeting, participants will include the pioneers, Professor Michael Freeden from Oxford, Professor Henrik Stenius, plus many other colleagues.

The new Europaeum European Conceptual History Research Project held its first workshop at the University of Oxford on Meanings of Rights and Democracy in Europe, on 17-18th March, 2008.

In the age of European integration and globalisation, the ever increasing cross cultural communication among citizens drawn from different regions, ideologies, social classes, and ethnicities, is becoming a most topical issue. In Europe the challenges of this interaction are highlighted within the European Union, a multilingual polity, with no single grid to show how key juridical and political concepts are used. The language borders and the state borders do not always run together, and their different political language games do not necessarily correspond to national, linguistic or even party political differences. We have to accept that there are no simple or mechanical ways for translating key political concepts; they will always carry within them historical layers with inherent historical controversies.
