Countdown until Bridging National and Global Perspectives

Welcome to the ICCEES 10th World Congress (Montréal, 2021) website!




Considering the escalating global impact of COVID-19, the declaration of states of emergency, and the closure of universities, the Organizing Committee of the 10th ICCEES World Congress recommended and ICCEES has decided:

  1. That the 10th ICCEES World Congress be postponed; and
  2. That it be held at Concordia University in Montreal, from 3 to 8 August 2021.
It has been a complex and arduous process to assess the necessity and feasibility of postponement and to arrive at this decision. It is not a step that is taken lightly. ICCEES, its member associations, and all participants certainly understand the gravity of the current global crisis. 
While we hope for a rapid return to normal operations, the Organizing Committee considered all the relevant factors and concluded that under the circumstances postponement is the most prudent option.
ICCEES, the Canadian Association of Slavists, and Concordia University fully support the Organizing Committee in ensuring that the 10th ICCEES World Congress will be a resounding success in 2021.

Due to the postponement, the Organising Committee will be honouring and recognising all proposals and registrations made for the Congress. An email was sent to all registered participants regarding reimbursements.
If you have registered for the Congress, but did not receive an email, please fill out this survey.
More information for all participants will be coming in the next few weeks.
We thank you for your patience.



ICCEES, the International Council for Central and East European Studies, is a global consortium of national scholarly associations dedicated to multi-disciplinary research into Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia. Its aims are to:

  • promote international scholarly exchange and cooperation by holding a World Congress every five years;
  • share experience and support in critical methods, scholarly publishing, and organizational skills; and
  • welcome young scholars working in the field.

With the main theme of “Bridging National and Global Perspectives,” the Organizing Committee of World Congress in Montréal looks forward to welcoming an estimated 1,500 participants from around the world; professors and graduate students who study Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia from diverse disciplinary and cultural perspectives. Our rich program will feature keynote speakers, panels, book discussions, and other special events relating to political science, history, literature, linguistics, journalism, public policy, economics, international trade, and other fields.
