SUBVERSIVE FORUM - THE FUTURE OF EUROPE, Zagreb, 19. 5. 2012

Round Table: The Future of Balkans

Speakers: Renata Salecl (Slovenia), Boris Buden (Croatia/Germany) and Dubravka Ugrešić (Croatia/Netherlands)

Chair: Igor Štiks (Subversive Forum, Croatia)

The specter of the Balkans haunts Europe today... But what is the Balkans and where is it after all? An entity known for constant fragmentations and undefined borders remains a solid entity in the European imagination, a name that incites both fear and fascination. After numerous debates on the future of Europe, we invite Renata Salecl, Boris Buden and Dubravka Ugresic, some of the finest Balkan and European intellectuals, writers and philosophers, to discuss the role and the place of the Balkans in contemporary Europe. They will consider questions such as:

-- What happens when one can observe 'balkanisation' within the European Union while 'europeanisation' of the Balkans is in a deep crisis and under serious critical examination?
-- How to account for the situation in which 'europeanisation' comes in the form of further 'balkanisation' in the Balkans by strengthening the borders between the EU members and the ghettoised non-EU countries?
-- What is 'Western' and what is 'Eastern' Balkans?
-- What is Greece's place in Europe and the Balkans in a situation when new artificial divisions between the so-called functioning 'North' and unruly 'South' are becoming widely accepted?
-- Finally, how can we account for the persistence of nationalism and conservatism within the Balkans on one hand and, on the other, the emergence of some of Europe's most progressive protest movements in countries such as Greece, Romania or Croatia?
