To mark the 5th birthday of CITSEE, a special film screening event will be held showcasing the diverse and exciting research the project has done over the past 5 years.

On 31 March 2014, the CITSEE project will be five years old. Since 1 April 2009 we have been researching citizenship laws and policies in the new states of South East Europe (former Yugoslavia) in the light of the ongoing processes of Europeanisation in the region. We have been putting the results of our research online on our websites: www.citsee.ed.ac.uk and www.citsee.eu.  During the last three years, we’ve paid particular attention to disseminating our research in accessible ways, developing our web magazine, Citizenship in South East Europe (www.citsee.eu) which includes interviews, stories, studies, blogs, animations and videos.

In the last few months we have been embarked on a very exciting project to offer our researchers and collaborators new ways of disseminating their research through short documentary films. At a special event to mark CITSEE’s 5th birthday, we will be showing these films, bringing together friends and colleagues who have supported CITSEE in order to thank them for the work they have done and to show them some results from our research. The event will celebrate the ‘Varieties of citizenship in South East Europe’. After the films, there will be a drinks reception.

The events will take place in Old College, South Bridge, starting with a film screening in Lecture Theatre 175, at 5:30pm, and a drinks reception in the Lorimer Room at 6:30pm.
