Paper on consociationalism at the University College London

I presented at the conference „Habsburg Austria’s Consociational Legacies: New Research on Political Representation in Interwar Central Europe“, organised by UCL’s  School of Slavonic and East European Studies. My paper “Consociational and non-territorial autonomy legacies in former Habsburg Galicia” analysed Habsburg legacies of non-territorial autonomy in the West Ukrainian Peoples Republic and the Second Polish Republic.
