As part of the introductory program for new reaserchers, the SPS department is organizing the SPS Accademia Fiesolana 2019 . The EUI aims to be a vibrant space of academic intercourse, where a plethora of seminars, workshops, public lectures, book launches, thesis defences, and high-level workshops, staged each and every week throughout the academic year. The SPS department organizes the SPS Accademia Fiesolana to give its new researches a taste of this culture of discourse and introduce them to the research of some of its faculty members . During the SPS Accademia Fiesolana we will exchange and discuss ideas, evidence and arguments on topical issues in the social sciences with a view not only to discuss this from a purely academic point of view, but also to deliberate about the issue(s) at hand from the perspective of political implications and policy relevance. The SPS Accademia Fiesolana takes place over three afternoon sessions. The first session deals with the purported crisis of democracy in Europe. How real is it? What can be done about it? The second session addresses changing gender relations in modern economies. How much gender diversity is there in modern workspaces, and where? How can experimental methods help to investigate the causes, obstacles and consequences of such diversity? The third session turns to the European Union and investigates the policy demand for transnational solidarity and the social, political and normative bases of its (lack of) supply. More detailed descriptions of the sessions follow below. In preparation of the sessions, please read the indicated material and prepare questions and comments.
