Re-Thinking European Integration

Dates:
  • Mon 16 Jun 2014 09.00 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2014-06-16 9:00 2014-06-16 18:00 Europe/Paris Re-Thinking European Integration

European Integration has always been characterised by cycles of progress, regress and stalemate.
Over the last thirty years, however, a number of underlying secular trends may be identified in the European Union such as a deepening of market and policy integration, a widening of the geographical scope of the Union, varied and more intrusive forms of Europeanisation, and the further institutionalization of the system through treaty change and informal processes of integration. The constitutional decade of the 2000s ended with ratification of the Treaty of Lisbon which codified some existing practices and opened the way for new decision rules and a number of novel actors.
The euro area crisis challenged the resilience and capacity of the European Union and although the crisis has abated somewhat, it is not over. The objective of this workshop is to launch a reflection on the dynamic of European integration at this juncture in the history of the Union. The workshop begins with a critical reflection of the Union’s constitutional framework. This is followed by an exploration of the dynamic of politicisation and differentiation, the working of the Union’s institutions, and governance and political economy. The workshop will be followed in the academic year 2014-15 by a series of seminars on Re-thinking Integration from an interdisciplinary perspective.
