The resurgence of "European Values" in EU politics: good news, lip service or danger?

Dates:
  • Mon 04 Jun 2018 12.00 - 14.00
  Add to Calendar 2018-06-04 12:00 2018-06-04 14:00 Europe/Paris The resurgence of "European Values" in EU politics: good news, lip service or danger?

‘European values’ are increasingly invoked in the political and intellectual debates framing EU politics. Redefinitions of EU borders (enlargements, Brexit), geopolitical challenges (conflicts, migrations, terrorism, environmental risks) and the economic and financial crises have triggered debates on the common values that hold member states and citizens together, justify public action and ensure the sustainability of European governance.
On the occasion of the forthcoming publication of a book dedicated to this issue, some distinguished scholars from different disciplinary and thematic backgrounds are invited to share their views on the reasons, meanings and effects of the multiplying references to ‘European values’, their appropriation by diverse groups of actors and their impact on public action
