'Rethinking Europe After the Financial Crisis'
8 October 2010,
King's College London, UK
How can we assess the impact of the financial/economic crisis on the future trajectory of the EU and the member states? To what extent does it require us to reconsider the tools and methodologies of different disciplines, and to develop new analyses and approaches? The workshop aims to explore, but is not limited to, the following topics: recent developments in the law and governance of the EU and member states; theorising the role of the nation state after the rescue of the banking system; the debate over the Euro and a common European economic government; the European core and the southern and eastern peripheries: uneven development, structural imbalances and political dimensions; national or comparative assessments of the impact of austerity measures on class, gender, racial, generational and other
divides; social and political mobilisation between apathy, mass anti-cuts struggles and the rise of far right movements; rethinking the European disciplines: critical evaluations, interdisciplinary dialogue and new approaches; rethinking the EU as a
multilayered/ interdisciplinar y scientific object
