Conference Theme: The EU beyond the crisis: learning from the past, preparing for new global challenges
While the European Union is still grappling with one of the worst crises of itshistory, new global challenges requiring urgent EU action are already on the rise. The financial and sovereign debt crisis with its severe economic and social impacts has exposedthe many weaknesses of the Eurozone’s governance, while the impact of the Eurozone’s performance and decisions on non-European economies havemade clear that European policy makers have a global responsibility.Similarly, in the area of EU’s external relations,the destabilization of Ukraine at its Eastern borderand the new security challenges coming from the middle East are calling for a strong coordinated response at supranational level. At the same time, the EU’s internal dimension presents its own challenges: the successful consolidation of thesingle market needs to go hand in hand with the advancement of regulatory standards, which are fundamental for theprotection ofour quality of life and for ensuring future sustainability. Europe must look forward, but in order to be successful, it must learn from its experience.
The aim of this conference is to analyze the EU institutions and its internal and external policies from a variety of perspectives and methodological backgrounds.We thus welcome panel and paper proposalsfrom a broad range of EU and European studies across disciplines. Proposals for papers should include a short abstract (max 200 words), paper title, institutional affiliation and contact details of the author(s). Proposals for panels should include the title of the panel and a brief synopsis (max 300 words), as well as information on the individual papers(3-4 per panel) including a short abstract, paper title, institutional affiliation and contact details of the author(s).
This year will feature a keynote address by Prof.Fabio Franchino,Professor of European Union Politics at the StateUniversity of Milan and President of the European Political Science Association (EPSA).
