The Czech Republic has been in the news recently because of its politicians' somewhat quick Celtic campaign to rebrand the country to the world as ‘Czechia’. But among political scientists and businesspeople the country's name has long suffered worst damage than this.

The disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakah has been caught in a tug-of-war between Armenia and Azerbaijan for decades. Internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan, it’s home to an estimated 120,000 people, primarily ethnic Armenians, who want to separate from Azerbaijan. It’s been a de facto independent state since a fragile ceasefire was brokered in 1994, and low-level violence has flared up every spring ever since.

The EU-Turkey deal should have no role in the Brexit debate, yet it
brings the crucial question of the European Union and migration into
focus at an inopportune time.

SIGN UP FOR THE EVENT
UCL Graduate School & DAAD Masterclass on European Law, Modern History and Public Policy
School Masterclasses are a programme of talks and workshops designed
specifically for early-career researchers to hear from, interact with
and be inspired by experienced academic researchers. This upcoming
workshop is organised in collaboration with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German national agency for the support of international academic cooperation.
09:45 – Tea & Coffee
The speakers have been invited to talk about their current research and the business of research in general, their views on how ideas are generated and research projects realised. The sessions also seek to present speakers' views and experiences of their time in academia, their ways of working and their interesting careers. Open to a restricted number of participants, sessions are conceived as being interactive, with a presentation from the speaker and plenty of time for the audience to ask questions. Each speaker will give their unique perspective on these issues, and although the talks will focus on a particular discipline, the chance to listen to and talk to a senior member of the global research community should appeal more widely to researchers considering a future in international research.
