Program Overview

The main objective of our publishing activities is to promote the results of academic research in various fields such as archeology; history (ancient, middle, modern and contemporary ); theology; diplomacy; cultural studies; international relations; and European studies. Its purpose is also to establish a dialogue between different approaches to scholarship, by reuniting not only theoreticians, researchers, and analysts, but also individuals actively involved in the transformations in the international scene. We also support the editing and promotion of numerous works (poetry, prose) of local authors.
