Through this seminar series, we promote the study of Balkan politics and societies through an interdisciplinary lens
Our activities are supported by the SSEES Library, whose holdings on South-East Europe comprise some 50,000 volumes including, notably, the Moses Gaster collection of old Romanian books, the collection bequeathed by Sir Arthur Evans, the Seton-Watson archive, and the wartime archive of King Zog of Albania.
We also play host to the Alexander Nash Albanian Studies Programme.
