  Add to Calendar 2018-04-16 9:00 2018-04-18 18:00 Europe/Paris Leadership Challenged: Politics and Policy-Making in the European Union at a Time of Crisis

The aim of this Executive Training Seminar is to discuss and analyse the tensions and challenges facing EU politics and policy-making at a time of crisis. The three distinguished speakers will aim to balance the sharing of experience and analysis with a critical take on Europe’s current predicaments connected to its still on-going polycentric crisis. Specifically, Jose Manuel Barroso will bring to bear his ten years of experience at the helm of the EU Commission and his prior experience as a European politician and head of state. Kalypso Nicolaïdis and Emily Jones will draw both on their scholarship and teaching, as well as their respective experiences as advisor to policy makers. Participants will be provided with overviews on the framework for analysing the different constellations of interests relevant to EU policy making and the different ways of understanding contestation in the EU today. Moreover the participants will be immersed in training activities focusing on negotiation strategies and tactics, including concepts like BATNA (best alternative to negotiated agreement), ZOPA (zone of possible agreement), anchoring, signaling, multi-level games, creating versus distributing values, the negotiation dilemma. The participants will engage in discussions on strategic topics spanning the Single market in Services, the politics and political economy of trade negotiations, the EU and global economic governance (including the WTO and FTAs/BITs, public opinion in the EU (based on expert analysis of polls and the public sphere). The negotiation simulation will focus upon the topic “Negotiating Brexit”.

Fees: 1,300 € (10% reduction for early registrations)
