Transregional relations of Eastern Europe and the Near East belong to the most under- researched topics of international historiography. Focused on the encounters (Panel I), conflicts (Panel II), and cooperation (Panel III) of what might be called the Slavic and the Islamic Worlds the Commission Internationale des Études Historiques Slaves (CIEHS) intends to open the field from the Middle Ages to the Present for future investigation.
