Detailed perspective and reflection on international and regional matters beyond Europe is not very common in contemporary political science and public debate on the Old Continent especially in Poland. We, Department of Non–European Political Studies (Faculty of Political Science and Journalism of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan) believe that the following proposition of international scientific conference to be great opportunity to discuss contemporary changes in both regional and international perspective. 

Beyond Europe: Politics and Change in Global and Regional Affairs is the first conference organised by our department. We make sure that discussion within this scientific event is being conducted with regard to wide spectrum of opinions and views as well as the interdisciplinary approach towards proposed subjects. Apart from many advantages we believe that by long-term cooperation with scientific research centres in Asia, South America and Africa we will make sure that during our conference there will be plenty of voices from regions of which the matters will be discussed and that gives every participant unique perspective to hear all the interesting facts, opinions and interpretations of international affairs from those directly involved. 

At the same time we are sure that following event is going to attract many well-known and respectable scientists as well as beginners and even students who will be able to share their perspectives and views of current affairs. Many methodological backgrounds, scientific methods and schools will provide interesting diversity and make discussions dynamic and exciting. Apart from  scientists,  we  expect  to  welcome  many  businessmen, NGOs representatives and even diplomats from different parts of the globe, that alone make us believe that effects of this event are going to be visible in more detailed and professional discussion not only in academia but also in public debate.
