CALL FOR PAPERS: Deadline 30 September 2011

‘The European Union in International Affairs III’

Brussels, 3-5 May 2012

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) and Egmont – the Royal Institute for International Relations invite papers for the third edition of the ‘European Union in International Affairs’ (EUIA) Conference (formerly organised in the context of GARNET).

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.

Deadline for paper proposals: 30 September 2011
