Please join the Outreach Lecturing Fund of the Fulbright-Hays Foundation, the N. Iorga Chair for Romanian Language and Culture at Columbia University, the Black Sea Network Project, East Central European Center and the Harriman Institute for a talk with Professor Adina Ciugureanu (Ovidius University, Constanta, Romania). RSVP required.
Please join us for panel discussion about the complexities and challenges of enacting reparative justice and memorialization initiatives in a region where ongoing battles over the historical interpretation of events remain a psychological continuation of these conflicts. While the carnage wrought by armies and militias may have ended in the region more than twenty years ago, the wars over human rights, history, memory, and commemoration continue to be waged in the fragile socio-political terrain of the Balkans.
The Golden Age of natural gas, announced by the IEA only a couple of years ago, has not materialized in Europe to date. In the electricity sector, gas increasingly finds itself squeezed between cheap coal and subsidized renewable energy sources. Domestic production of natural gas is declining more rapidly than anticipated, chiefly due to the Dutch government’s decision to curtail production at the largest natural gas field in Europe, to mitigate frequent earth tremors reported from the area.
