ICCEES is a global consortium of national scholarly associations dedicated to multi-disciplinary scholarly studies of Central and Eastern Europe, including former Soviet countries of Central Asia.

Its aims are to:

  • promote international scholarly exchange and cooperation in Central and East European Studies by holding a World Congress every five years;
  • share experience and support in critical methods, scholarly publishing, and organizational skills; and
  • welcome young scholars working in the field.

The founding conference in Banff, Canada (1974) was attended by participants from 29 countries, and ICCEES continues to expand its international partnerships and connections.
