This workshop will examine the extent and nature of external influences, broadly defined, in south-east Europe taking a multi-disciplinary, and diverse methodological, approach to this highly topical area of study.

It starts from the premise that the region is coming back to the fore as a space of interest to the EU, Russia and Turkey - amongst others. The workshop seeks to explore how these influences are manifested in the region in terms of politics, security, religion, media and culture.

In this way we seek to promote further research in this developing area by both looking at several aspects in empirical detail and identifying overarching patterns and trends which may not be visible to a more specific approach.
