Past and present: Is there anything new with anti-Americanism today?
As a part of the three year research project on political consequences of anti-Americanism, the Center for Policy Studies organized the first major international conference entitled Past and Present: Is there anything new with anti-Americanism today? The discussions took place in the main CEU Auditorium.
Academics from South East Asia, from the Middle East, Europe and the United States presented their views and thoughts on 'old' and 'new' anti-Americanism from a wide range of perspectives such as political science, history and the media.
Speakers were invited to discuss some of the differences between anti-Americanism in the late 1960s and early 21st century. These were presented over two days in three separate panels. The first panel addressed the issue of "old" and "new" anti-Americanism in Europe, the second panel focused on regions and countries outside of Europe, while the final panel investigated the relationship between anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism.
