The EDDA Research Center—in cooperation with the Ratiu Democracy Centre and the Babes-Bolyai University in Romania as well as the London School of Economics – LSE IDEAS—hosts an international conference on the perilous political and economic situation in Europe from Romanian and Icelandic perspectives. The conference, which is titled War Narratives, Global Crises, and Memory Battles, will take place at the Culture House in Reykjavik on 21 October 2022. It is part of a Romanian-Icelandic research project funded by the European Economic Area (EEA) – Norway grant scheme. The event brings together scholars and professionals in diverse fields to explore the security and economic consequences of the war in Ukraine, democracy and the rule of law, and memory politics in Iceland and Romania. It belongs to a conference series—held in Iceland and Romania in 2022–2023—which centers on the state of the liberal democratic order and on Romanian and Icelandic experiences of political, economic, and societal transitions and crises.
