Location:

Mrs. Hadjitofi, a refugee of the 1974 Turkish Invasion of Cyprus, served as Honorary Consul of the Republic of Cyprus in The Netherlands and Representative of the Church of Cyprus, where she sought justice for the looting of Cyprus’ cultural heritage through repatriation of its stolen religious artifacts. Her work culminated in the Munich Operation, which led to the arrest of art trafficker Aydin Dikmen and the recovery of over $60 million dollars of stolen antiquities from Turkish-occupied Cyprus.

CES: Dilemmas of Inclusion: The Political Representation of Muslims in Europe

2:15pm to 4:00pm

Location: 

Adolphus Busch Hall, Cabot Room

Two central questions motivate Dilemmas of Inclusion: The Political Representation of Muslims in Europe: First, when and how do political parties include minority groups who face hostility from large segments of existing voters? Second, how do secular social democratic parties – the typical agents of minority integration – include groups whose views on social issues such as religion, sexuality and gender equality stand in direct opposition to those adopted in party programs and by core constituents? Dilemmas of Inclusion thus addresses how the multicultural dilemma, i.e., the tensions...

CES: Economic Transformation in the Global Economy: A Comparison of Spain and Korea

12:15pm to 1:45pm

Location: 

Adolphus Busch Hall, Cabot Room
The relationship between institutional change and national productive structures is a major focus of the political economy literature. However, the perspectives of late industrializing, peripheral economies are seldom considered.

The contrast between Korea’s upgrading via the manufacturing industries that drove industrialization in the 1960s and 1970s, and Spain’s move away from manufacturing and into...

CES: Sex and Scandal in France since the Old Regime

12:15pm to 1:45pm

Location: 

Adolphus Busch Hall, Cabot Room
Here is the abstract: It is a truism that the personal lives of French politicians are regarded as private matters as opposed to the real stuff of politics. However, this has not always been the case. In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, sex scandals sparked significant political mobilization and indeed contributed to the downfall of both the Old Regime and the July Monarchy. This presentation examines three case studies from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century to explore the declining relevance of sex scandals in...

China’s Slowing Growth and Implications for the Global Economy

China’s stock market correction and currency devaluation sent shock waves through global markets over the summer.  President Xi Jinping on his recent visit said that China’s growth slowdown was a normal development now that China has reached middle income and is rebalancing from an investment-led economy to one based more on innovation on the supply side and consumption on the demand side.  Chinese leaders expect the economy to grow at 7 percent for the...
