EUSA 2019 Call for Papers and Panels
EUSA SIXTEENTH BIENNIAL CONFERENCE
Denver, CO – May 9-11, 2019
Coming Together or Moving Apart?
Program Chairs: Rachel Epstein (University of Denver) & Tanja Börzel (Freie Universität Berlin)
CALL FOR PAPERS AND PANELS
In recent years, the European Union has endured severe economic crisis, internal and external migratory pressure, the rise of anti-system political parties, and the British vote to leave. Despite a broader economic recovery accompanied by a range of reforms, tensions within the EU over economic policy, border security, and national sovereignty remain. This call invites proposals that contribute to the debate about whether recent developments lay the foundations for continued fractionalization, or whether contrariwise, the EU is newly positioned to move its remaining member-states forward together. Interdisciplinary perspectives on the weaknesses, contradictions and promises of both liberalism and integration, on which the EU has long rested, are especially welcome. Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Public opinion, politicization, and Euroskepticism
- Democracy, fundamental rights and EU law
- Migration, citizenship, nationalism and identity
- Inequality, economic reform, and public policy
- Europe in the World, security architectures, and the transatlantic relationship
- EU governance and reform
- European (dis) integration
Although papers are welcome, full panel proposals will be given priority in the selection process. Proposals for author-meets-critics sessions and thematic roundtables will be evaluated on merit. Participants will be notified of the Program Committee’s decisions by December 14, 2018.
To submit a proposal, look for the submission link at https://eustudies.org/ that will be available starting August 1, 2018.
Deadline for submissions is October 1, 2018.
