Paul Nugent re-elected as AEGIS President:

At the Plenary meeting of AEGIS member centres preceding the ECAS 4 conference in Uppsala, Paul was elected to a second 4 year term as President.

Paul also gave a welcoming and a closing address to the ECAS delegates on behalf of the AEGIS Board.

ECAS 4 was attended by 9 staff/fellows of CAS and by 5 PhD students who presented papers. The strong Edinburgh presence was reinforced by the staffing of a table at which CAS programmes, several MSc programmes in the School of Social and Political Science, ABORNE and Critical African Studies were advertised and by a well-attended reception - in part to highlight the 50th anniversary celebrations - that was held on the second night.
