Future of Europeanization - European Policies in the Making

Graduate Symposium organized by Max Weber Programme, EUI and James Madison University

San Domenico di Fiesole, Villa la Fonte, 8 June 2009


The Max Weber Program at the European University Institute and James Madison University’s Master in European Union Policy Studies will hold the second graduate symposium on European policies in Florence, Italy, in June 2009. The call for papers is addressed to EUI graduate students from all departments and graduate students at James Madison University in Florence.

The primary aim of the symposium is to discuss the various policies adopted by the EU, to appreciate their effectiveness and analyze their impact, in order to better understand the EU as a system of governance. Theory as well as empirics-driven papers and work in progress are welcome.

The symposium is a platform for junior researchers and masters students to present their ideas and work in a professional setting. The event is a unique opportunity for researchers working in field to compare their approach, their research questions and their methodology.

As two institutions promoting academic excellence, EUI and JMU will grant two awards for the best papers. A scientific committee formed by EUI and JMU professors and headed by Prof. Peter Mair, Chair of the EUI SPS Dept., will select the winners.

The symposium will be structured in parallel panels. These are some of the themes we are expecting papers to be about:

  • EU Policy-making process
  • EU Justice and Home Affairs Policies
  • EU Immigration and Integration Policies
  • Economic Policies
  • Social Policies
  • Science and Technology Policies
  • Human Rights Protection

Abstracts and a short CV should be sent by 4 April 2009 to Dr. Can Aybek, Max Weber Fellow, EUI

The final paper should be sent to the same address by 24 April
