Georgia - Venäjä - Suomi -konferenssi
Joensuu 29.08.2012 klo 09:00 - 30.08.2012 klo 15:00

Welcome to an international conference 'Small Nations on the Border
of a Great Power: Finland and Georgia Compared'.

Wednesday 29th August 9 am to Thursday 30th August 3.30 pm at the
University of Eastern Finland, Joensuu, Aurora Building, room AU206.

This conference compares the experiences of Finland and Georgia from
the sixteenth century to the present day. In spite of many
similarities in the historical evolution of national identity and
incorporation into the Russian Empire at the same time, in relations
with Russia there could not be a greater contrast. Where are the
similarities and differences, and what lessons can these two small
countries learn from each other?

Speakers include: Alena Andronovna, Levan Avalashvili, Timothy
Blauvelt, Max Engman, Suvi Kansikas, Kimmo Katajala, Nino Kemoklidze,
Giorgi Kldiashvili, Jukka Kokkonen, Jukka Korpela, Ilkka Liikanen,

Suny. Full program see link below.
