The International Council for Central and East European Studies (ICCEES) is the global alliance of national associations of Slavic and Eurasian studies, composed of the ASEEES (United States), CAS (Canada), BASEES (Britain), DGO / SOG (Germany), FAREES (Finland), ANZSA (Australia), CAREECAS (China), JCREES (Japan), KASS (Korea), and MACEES (Mongolia), and other respectable organizations. The ICCEES was created in 1974 and holds a world congress once every five years. The next world congress will be held in Makuhari (30 minutes from the heart of Tokyo), Japan, on August 3-8, 2015. The official languages of the congress are English, Russian, French, and German.
2015 — The Year of the ICCEES World Congress
During the last several years, Japanese specialists on Slavic and Eurasian studies worked hard for the World Congress of ICCEES (International Council for Central and East European Studies) to be held in Makuhari on August 3-8, 2015. For example, the 5th East Asian Conference on Slavic Eurasian studies held at Osaka University of Economics and Law (Yao Campus) on August 9-10, 2013 was a "general rehearsal" for the world congress. This event, thanks to the generous support by the university and its president, Professor Wakio Fujimoto, was a great success. It is worth mentioning that a number of ICCEES leaders from Europe and Oceania took part in the conference. The Osaka conference created an agora where “many Wests meets many Easts.”
In 2014, this assembly was multiplied by the active cooperation of Japanese and foreign specialists. As of today, 1,761 of our colleagues have registered as Congress participants and 450 panels and roundtables have been organized. Obviously, the World Congress in Makuhari will be one of the largest congresses in the history of ICCEES. During the months leading up to the congress, the Organizing Committee is working to bridge the academic and business worlds and involve the latter in the world congress. This endeavor will result in a significant increase of representatives from business circles among the congress participants. [...]

Vojtech Mastny, Zhu Liqun (eds.): The Legacy of the Cold War, Perspectives on Security, Cooperation, and Conflict. 2015, 388pp. ISBN: 9780739187890
The unexpected end of the protracted conflict has been a sobering experience for scholars. No theory had anticipated how the Cold War would be terminated, and none should also be relied upon to explicate its legacy. But instead of relying on preconceived formulas to project past developments, taking a historical perspective to explain their causes and consequences allows one to better understand trends and their long-term significance. The present book takes such perspective, focusing on the evolution of security, its substance as well as its perception, the concurrent development of alliances and other cooperative structures for security, and their effectiveness in managing conflicts.
In The Legacy of the Cold War Vojtech Mastny and Zhu Liqun bring together scholars to examine the worldwide effects of the Cold War on international security. Focusing on regions where the Cold War made the most enduring impact―the Euro-Atlantic area and East Asia―historians, political scientists, and international relations scholars explore alliances and other security measures during the Cold War and how they carry over into the twenty-first century.
