Proposals are now being accepted for papers to be presented at the fourth “European Union in International Affairs” (EUIA) Conference, which will be held on 22–24 May 2014 in Brussels.
The 4th EUIA Conference is being organized by the UNU Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS), Institute for European Studies at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (IES-VUB), Institut d’Études Européennes at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (IEE-ULB), and Egmont – the Royal Institute for International Relations.
The EUIA Conferences provide a multidisciplinary forum for discussion and exchange of ideas amongst scholars engaged in understanding the role of the EU in the world. This broad theme encompasses the dynamic interplay between the EU, its member states and external partners.
Debates may focus on such topical issues as the European elections and the quest for democratic accountability, the transatlantic trade and investment partnership, European responses to the instability in the wider neighbourhood, the external implications of the Eurozone crisis, and the evolution of the post-Lisbon European foreign policy system.
The EUIA Conference integrates “inside out, outside in” perspectives covering different policy fields, and is open to all relevant disciplines and sub-disciplines. Through keynote addresses and policy link panels, it seeks to foster exchange between the scientific and the policy communities. (Limited “solidarity grants” are available to cover part of the cost of participation of junior researchers from disadvantaged countries.)
Please submit an abstract (300 words maximum) of your proposed paper by 30 September 2013. (For more information, including instructions on how to submit your abstract, see the EUIA Conference website.)
Notification of acceptance will be sent by 17 January 2014. The deadline for submission of full papers: is 9 May 2014.
