Workshop on Europeanization and Enlargement
jointly organized by
LSEE Research on South Eastern Europe, European Institute,
LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND POLITICAL SCIENCE
The Center for European Studies, NATIONAL SCHOOL OF POLITICAL STUDIES AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION, Bucharest.
11-12 June 2010, Bucharest, Romania
With this Workshop, we 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". We 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.
We welcome papers within political science, political economy and international relations, whilst being open to papers on these themes in cognate disciplines. We seek 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.
Those interested in submitting papers are requested to send an abstract of 3-500 words by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for abstracts is 10th February 2010 and acceptance of paper proposals will be communicated by 1st March 2010. Papers may be submitted in English or French, but the language of the conference will be English.
A limited number of of bursaries will be available to paper givers, though these will not cover the full cost of travel and accommodation. Requests for such funding should be indicated at the time of submission of abstracts and decisions will be made at the time of the acceptance of papers.
