The First International Circassian Conference is way over due, but is finally under planning. A number of Circassian associations as well as Circassian activists, intellectuals, professionals and businessmen have been looking forward and asking for an annual meeting that can work as a platform to meet and exchange ideas and expertise. The Circassian communities in the motherland and in diaspora are very rich of experts in many various fields and it is extremely important to create a platform that can be utilized to bring all these experts together.
The motto for this conference is “what connects us” and there are many themes that fit under this such as education, economy, business, innovations, art, culture, music, history and many others. However, there are several key aspects that are considered the corner stones of all the various Circassian issues mentioned above and it is highly essential to address these key topics during this conference in order to move forward with the Circassian society in a positive and constructive manner. The program of the conference will extend over two days and it will cover the following key topics:
- The solutions to end the suffering of Circassians in the 21st century.
- The role of the European Union in resolving the Circassian issue at the international level.
