Last year marked the 10th anniversary of SEESOX. To commemorate this occasion, SEESOX organised a one-day conference on Monday 28 May at the European Studies Centre. This event brought together leading scholars, current and former associates, and students of SEESOX to revisit and acknowledge SEESOX ’s many achievements over the past decade, as well as to discuss the political, economic, social and security prospects in South East Europe for the next ten years. We were pleased to have Paddy Ashdown as the keynote speaker for this special event.
