EURINT 2019 Conference | European Union's structural challenges: the way forward
May 17-18, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, Romania
The Centre for European Studies within Faculty of Law from Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi (Romania) organizes the eighth EURINT edition. The event is part of the EURINT conference series which was successfully launched in 2013 in the frame of the Jean Monnet Life Long Learning Programme. Since 2013, the EURINT conference series has established itself as a visible academic event in the field of European Studies and in this regard we aim at developing it into a traditional conference series.
EURINT 2019 | European Union's structural challenges: the way forward will be focused on transmitting knowledge about EU's opportunities and risks in today's increasingly volatile global context and to draw together scholars, popular experts, civil society activists and decision-makers to encourage an exchange of views.
Today's global context brings about various insidious effects that weight heavily on EU's security and stability. As such, over the last decade EU has been confronted with multiple challenges (e.g. economic crisis, migrants' crisis, Ukraine crisis, etc.) that have become a key driver of uncertainty and have determined the European decision-makers to take very seriously the means and ways to boost EU's resilience when designing policies and strategies. Additionally, should we consider the neorealists' warnings about the shaking liberal world order, it becomes more imperative than ever for Europe to be prepared to face the future and find a way forward on its own. Within this context, the EURINT Conferences Series aims to foster and provide a proper context for mutual dialogue, joint knowledge and a better understanding of the challenges the EU faces in the current global context marred unprecedented shocks and challenges.
During the two-day conference, an exciting academic programme, featuring renowned international experts and keynote lectures, will be offered to our participants: PhD candidates, post-doc fellows, researchers, civil society activists, NGO representatives, consultants, policy advocates and many more.
We welcome both theoretical and empirical papers which could fit the following themes:
- Future of EU's external actions
- EU's major role in the world economy and its economic incentives
- European regional growth and sustainable development
- EU governance and public administration
- Challenges to EU law and governance in the member states
- Resilient Europe: challenges, strategies, policies
- Romania as EU member state: opportunities, responsibilities, challenges
- Cross border cooperation and peripheral areas in Europe
The deadline for online registration and submission of extended abstracts is March 31, 2019.
