The French Political Science Association's (AFSP) Research Group on the European Union (GrUE) was launched last month in Paris. The GrUE organises a first workshop entitled 'The Logics of Differentiation of European Integration: Definitions, Causes, Strategies, Effects'. It will take place the 1st of February 2018 at the University of Strasbourg's Societies, Actors, Governement in Europe (SAGE) Research Centre and the working languages will be English and French.
This workshop focuses on the logics of differentiation of European integration. The logics of differentiation of European integration refer to various dynamics, strategies, ideas and political discourses also known as 'variable-geometry Europe' or 'Europe à la carte'. These logics of differentiation of the European integration are shaped by the territorial variations of membership and implementation of the European public policies (Eurozone, Schengen area, Brexit) and by the variations of their politico-institutional degree of integration (monetary policy, CAP, defense policy). They can be interrogated from the point of view of their definitions (what?), their causes (why?), their strategies (how?) and their effects (which results?).
