Organiser: The Institute for European Studies at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (IES-VUB), the Institut d'Études Européennes at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (IEE-ULB), the United Nations University Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS), Egmont – the Royal Institute for International Relations

Topics: The multidisciplinary EUIA Conference will provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas among the growing number of scholars that take an interest in understanding the role of the EU in the world in diverse policy  fields  (including  environment,  energy,  information  society,  freedom  and  security,  finance,  security  and defence  etc.). 

This  includes  the  debate  concerning  the  EU  as  an  international  actor  and  the  dynamic  interplay between the EU, its member states, other regions and external partners in a multipolar/multilateral world. It may include topical issues such as the European response to the upheavals in the broader Middle East, European foreign policy  post-Lisbon,  the  external  effects  of  the  Eurozone  crisis,  the  EU‟s  role  in  global  governance  and  the international  implications  of  the  return  of  nationalism  as  a  political  force  on  the  European  continent.  Similarly, attention  to  the  external  implications  of  internal  EU  developments  such  as  the  push  towards  a  (Digital)  Single Market and creation of the space of freedom and security are welcomed. The EUIA Conference will be open to all relevant disciplines and sub-disciplines, including international and European law, international political economy, economics, political science, international relations and history. It will also continue to foster exchange between the scientific and the policy communities, especially through keynote addresses by senior policy makers and a number of policy-link events featuring academics as well as policy makers.
