Uppsala University invites to the 14th Conference on Baltic Studies in Europe (CBSE)


“Rights and Recognition in the Baltic Context”


In 2021, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania will mark 100 years of international recognition de jure as modern independent states, and 30 years of recognition of their reestablishment as independent democracies following a half century of Soviet domination. At the same time, it will be 300 years since the Treaty of Nystad ended Swedish rule in the Baltic territories, resulting in the creation of provinces of the Russian Empire with their own particular system of rights and regulations. Similar to today, however, these rights were not applied evenly across society. Then as now, some voices are suppressed, and some groups struggle for recognition. Thus, the main theme of the CBSE Uppsala in 2021 will be to look at aspects of rights and recognition in their broader meanings, as they pertain to the societies of the eastern Baltic littoral.

  • 3-5 of June, 2021
  • Uppsala, Sweden
