Rethinking Europe after the Financial Crisis, London

8th October 2010, King’s College London, UK

Call for: papers
Deadline: 19/07/2010

Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in European Law and Governance in cooperation with King’s College London, UK are organising Research Students’ Workshop with the topic: ‘Rethinking Europe After the Financial Crisis’: How can we assess the impact of the financial/economic crisis on the future trajectory of the EU and its member states? To what extent does it require us to reconsider the tools and methodologies of the different disciplines, and to develop new analyses and approaches?

The day-long interdisciplinary workshop is organised by PhD students with the aim of providing an opportunity to showcase the work of leading postgraduate researchers on the future of Europe in the light of the most recent developments.

The workshop aims to explore the following topics:
* new developments in the law and governance of the EU and member states;
* theorising the role of the national state after the rescue of the banking system;
* the debate over Euro and over a common European economic government;
* the relationship between the European core and the Southern and Eastern European peripheries: uneven development, structural imbalances and political dimensions;
* national or comparative assessments of the impact of the coming austerity measures on class, gender, racial, generational and other divides;
* social and political mobilisation between apathy, mass anti-cuts struggles and the rise of far right movements;
* rethinking the European disciplines: critical evaluations, interdisciplinary dialogue and new approaches;
* rethinking the EU as a multilayered/interdisciplinary scientific object

* Postgraduate researchers from across the EU and all the social science disciplines (e.g. European studies, politics, international relations, public policy, law and economics).
