Seminars, Conferences and Workshops

The Area Study Centre for Europe arranges lectures, seminars and conferences on contemporary issues concerning Europe and the latter’s relations with the rest of the world. Local and foreign scholars, faculty members and senior students participate in these programmes.

The Centre held its first international seminar in October 1995 on Post-Cold War European Order and South Asia in collaboration with the Hanns Seidel Foundation, (Munich, Germany). To-date the Centre has held an international seminar each year in collaboration with the Hanns Seidel Foundation. Eminent scholars from Europe, Africa, Asia and Pakistan participated in these events.

Under the European Union–sponsored programme the Centre held several seminars and workshops which continued for the duration of the programme. Two international seminars (in 2000 and 2002) were held with the joint collaboration of the Hanns Seidel Foundation and the European Union.

The Centre also held three International Conferences in cooperation with the Goethe- Institut Karachi to promote inter-cultural dialogue between the West and Islam.
