Regional and Local perspective in greece

Ever since it came into being, IMXA has organised and run local and international conferences and similar academic meetings on subjects relating to the history, archaeology, culture, and modern political, social, and economic problems of the wider region of south-eastern Europe and the Mediterranean. Since the 1960s, it has been holding regular symposia on ancient Macedonia (the first one in 1968), Greece’s bilateral relations with the other Balkan nations (the first, Greek-Serbian, symposium was in 1976), and the folk culture of the region (the Panhellenic symposium on the folklore of northern Greece was held in 1975). However, IMXA’s international scholarly meetings frequently transcend the narrow local confines of the Balkan Peninsula and concern European or even global issues (the first Greek-Soviet symposium was held in 1981).
