3.  14th Mediterranean Research Meeting: Workshop “Law and Corruption in Turbulent Times: Theoretical and Empirical Perspectives from the Mediterranean and South-Eastern Europe”, Mersin (Turkey), 20-23 March 2013

This workshop will address interactions between law and corruption in the Middle East and North Africa, and southern and south-eastern Europe. The basic issue we wish to explore is: How is legislation, policy and law-in-practice influenced by corruption, and what regulation and control of corruption is there by law, in a region experiencing the aftermath of the ‘Arab Spring’ and the European sovereign debt and banking crisis?

Consideration of the relationship between law and corruption is particularly timely given seismic political, economic and social transformations in these regions. Corruption has been highlighted during both the sovereign debt crisis in the Eurozone, and during mass protests broadly identified with the ‘Arab Spring’. This will be an opportunity to develop scholarship that responds to these unprecedented events in both looking at the enactment, use and failure of law to prevent or punish corruption, and exploring the influence of corruption on the legal process.

Deadline for the submission of abstracts: 15 September 2012.  For more information please visit the MRM conference website:

4. International Summer School: “Science History as Intercultural Learning”, Istanbul, 30 July – 2 August 2012

The Summer School will be hold at the Prof. Dr. Fuat Sezgin Research Foundation for the History of Sciences in Islam in cooperation with the University of Bremen.

From astronomy to zoology – the sciences and their practical applications flourished. From the 10th century in early scholastic times in Europe to the Renaissance and beyond, the translation and inculturation of Arabic-Islamic Sciences paved the way for the development of modern sciences in Europe. A variety of peoples, cultures, beliefs and world views contributed to this prosperous period, in which the sciences flourished. Embedded in a culture of tolerance, the Islamic praise of knowledge was a pillar of the sciences’ boost. It was the 19th Century myth of the Renaissance which put forth an effort to disperse the contributions of Arabic-Islamic science out of the historic memory.

The program comprises of morning lectures, workshops and daily plenary sessions to draw together emerging themes. Excursions will take students to famous sites in Istanbul relevant to the themes of the Summer School (e.g. Sülemanyie Mosque, library etc). Participants will be expected to attend all the workshops, discussions and lectures. The working languages are English and/or German.

We cordially invite submissions from students with interest in science history, intercultural learning and cross-cultural dialogue. Applications (in PDF-format) must be submitted by 29 June 2012 to Detlev Quintern این نشانی پست الکترونیک دربرابر spambot ها و هرزنامه ها محافظت می شود. برای مشاهده آن شما نیازمند فعال بودن جاواسکریپت هستید
