Workshop on Europeanization and Enlargement, June 11-12, 2009, Bucharest, Romania.
Topics: With this Workshop, the organizers seek to draw together scholars in order to connect the developing literature on ‘Europeanization’ to the recent realities of the domestic transitions underway in south-east Europe. The region exhibits an exceptional diversity of conditions in this respect: between recent entrants, applicant states, pre-accession states, a special strategy for the newly-defined ‘Western Balkans’, and countries coming under the ‘European Neighbourhood Policy’. They seek to extend and update earlier research, with a longer temporal perspective and a greater cross-comparison according to type of EU-status. There is much scope here for illuminating research and discussion.
The organizers welcome papers within political science, political economy and international relations, whilst being open to papers on these themes in cognate disciplines.
The papers that focus on public policy and/or institutions within a relevant domestic setting, comparative analyses and single case studies are welcome.
All papers delivered will be made available online via the CSE and LSEE.
Language: English, papers may be submitted in English or French
