  Add to Calendar 2019-03-05 9:00 2019-03-07 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 two distinguished course providers 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, José 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 will draw on her scholarship and teaching, as well as her experiences as advisor to policy makers.

Learning objectives:
• analysis of the different constellations of interests relevant to EU policy making and the different ways of understanding contestation in the EU today
• mastering negotiation strategies and tactics, through 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
• enhancing policy-oriented understanding of strategic topics. The focus will be on: the EU financial crisis; Brexit; 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); EU external relations including EU-Russia and Transatlantic relations.

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

A discount of 25% will be applied to the charges for international European and national civil servants, as well as to members of the NGOs.

The fees cover the cost of the course as well as coffee and lunch breaks. Travel and hotel costs are not included in the fees.

Full or partial fee-waivers, as well as a limited number of scholarships, will be available on merit or needs basis.

The deadline for applications is 28th February.
