An important feature of this conference will be an emphasis on feedback and discussion, moderated by expert chairpersons in various sessions. The conference will aim at young scholars as well as student works – both in presentations and active discussions in special sessions.

The conference will include experiential learning for students in multiple ways. Special partner of the conference a Post Bellum will prepare exclusive documentary screening, exhibition and interactive screenings of memories of witnesses of the historical phenomena in question.

Another planned experiential event will be a two-day Moot Court for students that will include competing teams from both organizing universities. The Moot Court will include external experts and will be open for conference attendants to become a part of audience. obrázek
