ECPAM’2014 (November 6-8, 2014) is

Political Attitudes and Mentalities (EPAM)and Faculty of
Political Science (FSPUB) at the University of Bucharestin Romania. 
The conference
will be held online as virtual conference.

The aim of this conference is to provide an
European interdisciplinary research framework, where the participants can share
their research ideas on their recent projects. Faculty, experts, academics, doctoral
and post-doctoral researchers are most welcome to participate in the conference
and exchange research findings in the frontier areas of classic and computational
political science. 
This year, the ECPAM’2014 general theme

Eastern European Post-Communist Societies: 
A Look from Inside on the Eastern European Political Cultures after the Fall
of Berlin Wall.
During the two decades after the Fall of Berlin Wall, Eastern European
post-communist regimes faced powerful challenges: transition to market economy
and democracy, consolidation of democracy, integration in the EU and N.A.T.O.
In spite of considerable efforts, people’s political attitudes and their
mentalities look still marked by the communist heritage, by their lack of trust
in democracy and market economy, and by the populist electoral campaigns. 
Political culture theories studying the Eastern European history and
politics could not fully cover and explain the nature of these political changes,
and the emerging political phenomena. Late developments in Ukraine astonished
Europe and not only, revived old fears and new cold war tendencies.  Eastern Europeans look themselves at these
political and social evolutions, and their explanations and perceptions are
often different from those of others. 
No political culture model, no value change model could so far give a
believable and complete explanation of what actually communism left behind when
evicted from Eastern Europe. And what we could expect from the short-,mid-, and
long-term political evolutions in this part of the world? ECPAM’20114 offers
the interdisciplinary framework for revealing this “look from inside”.
