VICE-CHANCELLOR TRETYN PROVIDES PATRONAGE TO THE
CONGRESS
21 September 2017

At the end of September, His Magnificence Prof. Andrzej Tretyn met the
Chairman of Asia-Pacific Society Adam Marszałek, PhD. They talked about
the state of preparations for the 5th International Asian Congress. For
years, Professor Tretyn has given support to this great scientific event by
providing his patronage. The Vice-Chancellor of the Nicolaus Copernicus
University declared that his university will participate more widely in the
5th edition of the Congress. 
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Having in mind the scholarly profile of the
International Asian Congress (previously
international Asian academic conference) and
openness of its organisers to the idea of expanding
the thematic scope of these meetings to include new
problems and geographical regions, including the
Middle East and Northern Africa, I would like to
invite you to participate in the block devoted to the
political, social and economic problems of countries
of this region.
The upcoming V International Asian Congress that will take place from 9 to
11 May 2018 and whose keynote subject is described in the title
“Destination Asia. Diversity, Otherness, Dialogue” is going to be the twelfth
annual meeting of scholars interested in Asian topics, and is designed by
the organisers to be the largest academic event in Europe dedicated to this
subject matter. Therefore, it is necessary to not only indicate but also
present and discuss, with a broad spectrum of topics, contexts and
references, the political, social and economic problems of the Middle East
and Northern Africa, including the countries of the Arab world as well as
Turkey, Iran and Israel.
On behalf of the organisers of the Congress and myself, I would like to
invite my colleagues - scholars of Oriental studies, including Arabic,
Turkish, Iranian, Hebrew and Islamic studies, as well as political scientists,
sociologists, scholars of religious studies and cultural studies, and everyone
whose research interests centre around the problems mentioned above, to
speak at the Congress.
It is an indubitable fact that the events and changes taking place at various
planes in the Middle East and Northern Africa are becoming the
determinant of the geopolitical, socio-cultural and economic situation of
countries not only in this region but also in the neighbouring regions, they
reverberate in the neighbouring continents, and their repercussions reach
far beyond this region, having a fundamental impact on the development of
the world in the 21st century. I hope that the Congress will be an
opportunity to present at least some of these problems with the use of
various methodologies and national perspectives, and to signal new trends
and topics appearing in academic discourse on the politics, society and
economy of the Middle East and Northern Africa.
