Allen Kassof Center (AKC) – for History, Art, and Ethnic Conflict in Central Europe

A new center for research and conflict resolution was founded at BISLA in the Fall of 2022. Building on the tradition of the regional roundtables among students, intellectuals, historians and political leaders, which went dormant after the Central and Eastern European countries joined the European Union, the Allen Kassoff Center plans to bring together students and practitioners for sustained dialogue, thematic conferences, and eventually also provide conflict resolution and conciliation services and consulting within the broader region. The initial pilot project currently underway resurrects the Slovak-Hungarian student sustained dialogue. In the future, the activities will expand to the Balkan region and, eventually, Ukraine.
