Unfortunately, due to the intensification of measures by state and educational authorities in an effort to stem the spread of the coronavirus, our conference “Territoriality and Non-territoriality in Accommodating National Diversity” had to be cancelled. This is with great sadness, because I and the entire NTAutonomy team have worked on this event for more than half a year.
On 14 November 2020, the ERC project Non-Territorial Autonomy together with the University of Vienna’s research group “History of Democracy and Human Rights” co-organised the international workshop Human Rights and Autonomy Rights in European Perspective. We presented the NTAutonomy project and commented on draft papers of colleagues from Geneva.

Starting in September 2019, I am an assistant professor (tenure track) for “Modern History of Central- and Eastern Europe and the Habsburg Monarchy” at the Department for East European History of the University of Vienna.

I participated in the second meeting of the management committee of the European Union sponsored COST Action “European Non-Territorial Autonomy Network” (ENTAN) in Skopje in early June.
I presented at the conference „Contested Minorities: A Transnational History of the Polish-Soviet Borderlands“ that was organised in early June at Birkbeck University London. My paper was entitled The minority Ministries for Poles, Jews and Russians in the Ukrainian people’s Republic and their Efforts to Establish National-Personal Autonomy.
