In 2008, INV has successfully implemented the conference and symposium:
International Conference Transnational ethnic communities: the country and its diaspora took place in June 2008.
In 2005, the Institute for Ethnic Studies celebrated its 80th anniversary of scholarly work in the fields of ethnicity, nationalism, minority and border area studies. This conference, titled TRANSNATIONAL ETHNIC COMMUNITIES, is one in a series of events that mark the onstart of our ninth decade.
In this conference, of special interest to us was the question of how the contemporary nation-states manage the relationship between themselves and the communities they consider their ethnic diaspora. To address this question within a framework of comparative evidence, there was a discussion on separate cases: Croatia, Israel, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Germany, China and Arab countries. In addition to professional performances of eminent international authority in this area – prof. Sammy Smooha, prof. Ton van Naerssen, prof. Mladen Klemenčič, dr. Irena Šumi – and young professionals, the conference also offered the active exchange of opinions and views of the interested audience.
Interdisciplinary symposium »Korotan in the heart: eight decades Club Carinthian Slovenes« was held in Celje on 20. October 2008.
14 domačih in 5 tujih (zamejskih) referentov je na primeru enega najvidnejših nosilcev čezmejnega sodelovanja osvetlilo poplebiscitno emigracijo koroških Slovencev, organizacijski razvoj pregnanskih združenj od dvajsetih let 20. stoletja do danes, tradicionalno vpetost sodelovanja v okviru "skupnega slovenskega kulturnega prostora" v bilateralno sodelovanje med sosednjima državama ter obseg in ohranjenost za obravnavano temo relevantnih arhivskih virov. Simpozij z nad 60 udeleženci ter spremljajoče prireditve (od razstave do slavnostne akademije) so bile deležne velike pozornosti slovenskih in zamejskih TV, radijskih ter tiskanih medijev. Vnaprej razmnoženemu zvezku s povzetki referatov naj bi sledil obsežnejši zbornik.
