The aim of this workshop is to examine the EU's unique approach to addressing several ongoing and overlapping crises, namely, the Covid-19 pandemic, the collapse of global supply chains, energy crisis, and climate change. Specifically, it will explore the wider socio-economic implications of policies adopted, and contribute to ongoing debates on the future of EU integration.
The workshop targets an interdisciplinary audience from academia, as well as policy practitioners with relevant experience on these topics. Applications from early career researchers across the social sciences are welcomed.
The first day of the workshop will be dedicated to two panels featuring keynote speeches by Amandine Crespy (Université libre de Bruxelles, Institut d'Études Européennes) and Julian Hinz (Bielefeld University and Kiel Institute for the World Economy). Early career researchers will be given the opportunity to present and receive feedback on their research. The panels will centre around the following themes:
- Implications of sanctions and supply chain disruptions for the EU
- Impact of Covid-19 and the green transition on EU socio-economic governance
The second half-day will be dedicated to a roundtable discussion on the lasting consequences of the EU's crisis responses. The roundtable will also provide opportunities for participants to exchange ideas with senior scholars on the future of the EU and Social Europe. EUI Dean of Executive Education, Professor Georgios Papakonstantinou, Amandine Crespy (ULB), Lucia Quaglia (University of Bologna), and Jonathan Zeitlin (University of Amsterdam), will be among the confirmed participants.
