Funding towards travel and accommodation is available for up to 50 paper-givers, subject to terms and conditions

Please find the Call for Papers below or visit The deadline for submission is: 8th April 2019.

Call for Papers: 'What for the Next European Century?'

We invite paper and panel proposals that address one or more aspects of the following theme: 

The year 2019 brings significant change for the European Union. The Article 50 deadline on 29th March is set to see the UK become the first member state to leave the EU. The European Parliament elections in May will be significant for the future direction of integration, as many watch to see whether the vocal populist movements can translate support into electoral success, and what this will mean for Europe. There are continuing challenges in terms of migration, climate governance and trade, as well as cooperation with non-EU countries. Alongside this, 2019 also marks the anniversary of momentous times in Europe's past such as the peace accords following the end of WWI, the establishment of the League of Nations and more recently the fall of the Berlin Wall. 

All these events have represented changes to Europe's place in the world order. To look upon uncertain times with academic favour, a timely opportunity exists to take stock of the past and think ahead to consider possible futures for Europe.

Proposals are welcome from all European Studies disciplines and related areas: for example (but not limited to) Political Science, Law, Sociology, Economics, History, Gender Studies, Anthropology, International Relations, Public Policy etc. We hope the conference will address the topic in a variety of ways and from a range of perspectives.
