  Add to Calendar 2015-05-28 8:30 2015-05-29 17:00 Europe/Paris European Integration and Pathways away from the Periphery in Europe

The second edition of the GGP conference on European integration and pathways away from periphery in Europe brings together scholars of comparative international development with the researchers of European integration and scholars dealing with the political economy of capitalism in Europe’s peripheries. The main goal is to discuss how European market integration shapes economic vulnerabilities and developmental opportunities in the Southern and Eastern peripheries of Europe and to explore the factors that could account for the diverse national responses to the challenges of integration, resulting in different developmental pathways. We will explore both the domestic drivers of change as well as the various ways EU strategies of integrating these two peripheries help or hinder domestic development agency. The conference aims to put the discussion of the Eastern and Southern Europe in the broader comparative context of political economy of development in other parts of the world, and it aims to highlight in particular the role of transnational agency in shaping the opportunities and constraints for pathways away from the periphery. Furthermore, the conference will explore what lessons Europe can draw from the relative successes and failures of the integration of its different peripheries and how strategies of managing core-periphery relations can help further integration rather than disintegration in Europe.
