Call for Applications: The 5th Edition of the Equality and Citizenship Summer School

The Center for Advanced Studies – South East Europe, the University of Rijeka, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Rijeka and the Croatian Society for Analytic Philosophy are organizing the 5th edition of the Equality and Citizenship Summer school from June 25th – 29th, 2018 in Rijeka, Croatia.

The Summer school does not reproduce, in a diluted form, the familiar teaching format of a university course. Instead, it is organized around “Author-Meets-Critics” symposia that are dedicated to publications and works-in-progress by some distinguished authors. All the leading participants will give a paper on a topic on which they are currently working, or a précis of a recently published book. During the symposia dedicated to them, they will then reply to the papers given by the other scholars.

This year’s leading participants are:

Prof Cecile Laborde, University of Oxford

Prof Julian Savulescu, University of Oxford

Prof Jonathan White, The London School of Economics and Political Science

Prof Lea Ypi, the London School of Economics and Political Science

The summer school is primarily aimed at attracting post-doc researchers and doctoral students. They can contribute to the discussion by commenting and asking questions, and in case they participated in earlier editions of the summer school, they are invited to apply with paper proposals for the symposia and send an abstract of no more than 2,500 characters by April 15th 2018. Other participants are invited to send their applications by May 15th 2018. All participants will receive a certificate of participation that describes the activities in which they have participated at the summer school.

Fashion Week is a seasonal showcase of the Sweet and Salt flagship, which is a part of a project Rijeka – European Capital of Culture 2020, presenting us with themes, concepts, works, plans and cooperative developments connected to the understanding and designing the future city through the context of Rijeka and the S&S territory. This year’s event took place 19th – 21st December at the DeltaLab, presently situated in the exIvex building, and its themes were the reinvention of Delta Hood and the introduction of the newly formed DeltaLab.

FW2017 kicked off with a Reinventions Live workshop which gathered architecture students, exIvex residents and Rijeka “creatives” for the task of reinventing the exIvex building by coupling the various unexpected potential users with a variety of non-physical contexts. In the second part of the day, Urbanist Platform provided the trip to Lipa Remembers museum and conversation with the exhibition authors and the curator, as well as the trip to the Museum of Contemporary and Modern Art and the conversations with the director and the author of the reconstruction.

The second day started with the opening of the exhibition and the presentations of Reinventions – Delta Hood, beginning with the thought-provoking results of the previous day’s workshop, which sparked off debates concerning the future developments of tourist, military, agricultural and administrative realities. The debates continued with the presentations of the outstanding student works, including the reinventions of exIvex, reinventions of ExportDrvo and the reinvention of Delta Beach. These were followed by the presentation of the “reinvention” of the two-week European architecture students assembly taking place in Rijeka in the summer of 2018 – Re:EASA.

After lunch, DeltaLab was introduced as the new center for urban reinvention, a  platform for research, education and policy development, and Vedran Mimica gave a lecture on Berlage Affairs, reminding us of what a vibrant alternative institution such a center could become. The day ended with the Understading the City roundtable, with Vedran Mimica, Snježana Prijić-Samaržija, Idis Turato, Mia Roth-Čerina, Dinko Peračić and Leo Modrčin discussing the possibilites, challenges, risks and reinventions of education on the contemporary and future urban issues, moderated by Luka Skansi and Nebojša Zelič.

The third day of FW2017 was reserved for discussing the themes and results of the Mare Monti project, an inquiry into the contrasts of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.

FW2017 ended buzzing with discussion about the futures, of DeltaLab, of the city of Rijeka, of the numerous concepts we once held as familiar which we now recognize to be in the state of strange transformation, of cities, of the planet.

Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture


Fashion week – Winter 2016 is a seasonal event which took place on December 19 – 20, 2016, at the OKC Palach in Rijeka. The Winter 2016 pilot edition presented us with a two day display of the basic themes and concepts of the Sweet & Salt Flagship, including the theoretical background of the planned urban reinvention of the part of the city where the river meets the sea.

The lead project host of the Sweet & Salt flagship is the Center for Advanced Studies – South East Europe at the University of Rijeka. The flagship is striving to produce multiple projects that will honour the memory of forlorn spaces, while inspiring modern urban planning within the program of Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture. The 6-year flagship, guided by architect Idis Turato, will aim to engage citizens in critical debates about their urban environment, stimulated by various artistic interventions.

Fashion week

The first day of the Winter 2016 edition introduced the inspiring works of 9th semester architecture students (Faculty of Architecture, University of Zagreb), presented at an exhibition at the SKC Gallery and thoroughly discussed during five panels by a selection of international experts in the fields of architecture and urban planning, followed by critical debates with their mentors and professors. The first day concluded with the Urban Update / Upgrade public debate, a discussion which hosted the esteemed architects and art historians Simon Hartmann, Maroje Mrduljaš, Dinko Peračić and Luka Skansi.

izlozba Vi ste sada ovdje

The program of the second day of the Winter 2016 edition was publicly accessible, commencing with the presentation of the art exhibition Vi ste sada ovdje (You Are Now Here by Vuk Ćosić) featuring historical and geographic maps of Rijeka and the surrounding region. The exhibition can be viewed at the Plavi salon Gallery at the Rijeka City Hall and will remain open until the end of January 2017 (every Wednesday from 4.00 to 6.00 pm at the address Korzo 16). The Winter 2016 program continued with multiple panels focusing on the current (real) state of cities within the region and the future (speculative) realities. The Rijeka ECOC 2020 – Amplifier of Urban Reinvention public debate hosted Emina Višnić (Director of Rijeka ECOC 2020), Vojko Obersnel (Mayor of Rijeka), Neil Peterson (Liverpool ECOC 2008), Janez Koželj (Deputy Mayor of Ljubljana) and, encouraged by Vuk Ćosić’s moderation (Rijeka ECOC 2020), provided a chance to chart both the inspiring possibilities and the evident challenges of the urban reinvention which the Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture project will ensure.

“Crossing Roads: Civil Society and the Academia” round table

The “Crossing Roads: Civil Society and Academia” round table took place at the Rijeka City Hall on September 14th, 2016, as a part of the CAS SEE “Rethinking Politics of Diversity” summer school program, organised in cooperation with the Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory, University of Belgrade, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung – Zagreb, University Paris 8, Vincennes-St Denis and Center for Women’s Studies, University of Rijeka.

Hosted by Vojko Obersnel, M.Sc., Mayor, City of Rijeka, the round table participants examined the complex relationship between the academia and the civil society, providing their unique visions and sketching out possibilities of advanced cooperation on the basis of their experiences of being members of these intertwined communities.

This summer school should provide space for recasting frameworks of “diversity politics” and “diversity discourses” in Europe. In light of recent events, we would like to challenge the crisis of multiculturalism and core European values of solidarity and human rights. The “failure of multiculturalism” narrative has become all too present in Europe, shifting the rhetoric to cultural anxieties and articulating immigration as a national threat. This discourse has also affected “internal immigration”, making certain groups throughout Europe less visible and more vulnerable: Roma, refugees and internally displaced persons, certain LGBTQ communities. Moreover, ethnicity, nationality, religion and race are being forcefully reshuffled, inviting contemporary forces of nationalism and securitization. Hereby, we are particularly interested to the effects of the ways how European countries ‘manage’ diversity through its policies and practices: from ethnic and racial to socio-economic diversity, but also particularly to citizenship and migration status diversity. It is of crucial interest to map and evidence differences among significantly varying Western European practices (France, UK, Germany etc.), Central European practices (former communist countries with strong opposition to multiculturalism) and South-Eastern European practices in countries where migration is observed as passing-by phenomenon.

The lectures and seminars of this summer school particularly investigate how these three identified regions policies connected to governmentality of diversity are changing after the recent and actual conflicts and migration flows. The summer school will particularly focus on policies and practices that affect marginalized and vulnerable groups in these regions.

The summer school’s main goal is to highlight the agency of these marginalized groups in order to understand, how they themselves respond to the reconfigurations of diversity politics and practices.

Global Migration Governance: Will 2016 be the decisive year?


Caroline Schultz


Expert Council of German Foundations on Integration and Migration, Berlin

Migration management remains one of the last bastions of national sovereignty. As a result, most countries traditionally tend to be more cautious when setting international standards related to migration. Global migration governance therefore resembles a fragmented tapestry. Since the turn of the millennium, however, there has been considerable movement in the international fabric of norms and rules on migration: migration plays a role in many areas of the UN system, outside of the UN as well, migration issues are increasingly discussed on the international stage. Germany is also more and more involved in global migration policy, and not just since the sharp rise in refugee arrivals over the last two years. For example, in 2017/2018 Germany, together with Morocco, will chair the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD). The presentation will provide a critical overview of global migration governance, taking into account the most recent developments leading up to the September 19th UN high-level meeting to address large movements of refugees and migrants and sketch out what lays ahead in this field.


Concluding remarks for the day


Photo exhibition opening (Faculty for the Humanities and Social Sciences, Main Hall):


Out of Sight: Poverty, Rurality, Gender

Jelena Ćeriman, CELAP

Miloš Kosovac, CELAP

Kristina Smoljanović, CAS SEE

The exhibition “Out of Sight: Poverty, Rurality, Gender” deals with gender and social disparities in rural areas and focuses on specific areas of social politics. The intersection of exclusion, poverty and gender means that the slightest social tremor plunges those living in poverty and isolation into isolation and neglect. We innovated the way in which we communicate research results by including representatives of the group itself into the creative part of work and allowing them to demonstrate their capacity of perceiving inequalities, barriers and obstacles they meet in everyday life. They achieve this through making photos. Using a camera, girls, young women and women from rural areas complemented our results and ethnographic materials made by our researchers, by giving a human face to poverty and social exclusion.

Crossing Roads: Civil Society and Academia

 (Speaking in Croatian)

The question of representing the reality of society is fundamental and is now threatened by the triumph of simplified visions of society, visions of the other who does not correspond to reality. We couldn’t make democracy if we stayed in terrible ignorance of each other. Participating in this very same reality also demands a willingness to recognize that the democracy is intermittent and thoughtless, that it needs knowledge. Academia and civil society meet on crossroads of action and thinking. Both realms of common reality should think and study their actions and act in their research and studies.
