Location: , Austria
Category: Regional Studies
Start Date: 05-17-2012 Last Day: 05-19-2012 Deadline for abstracts: 01-15-2012
Not a long time ago, in 2010, a British lady was considered bigoted by Gordon Brown upon asking ‘Where do all these Eastern Europeans come from?’(1). Maybe, despite her concern with the dangers of immigration for Britain, the lady was right in showing that such a question still awaits for answers in Europe. The ironic thing however is that a first answer to such a question would point to the fact that the Eastern Europeans come from the Western European imaginary. As Iver Neumann puts it, ‘regions are invented by political actors as a political programme, they are not simply…

Location: , France
Category: Regional Studies
Start Date: 03-08-2012 Last Day: 03-10-2012 Deadline for abstracts: 11-15-2011
Historically, the EU is both curious and controversial: it is hard to explain from a state-centrist view the delegation of sovereignty and the fragile agreement on the gradual extension of the EU powers together with externalizations of the decision making to a polity that can be described, as Jacques Delors expressed it, as an unidentified political object. However, in the last 60 years the European Union absorbed increasing amounts of intellectual and political energies that attempted to singularly or complementary explain the nature of the beast and the logic of the processes unfolded within. A large amount of theoretical assumptions,…

The Euroacademia International Conference ‘The European Union and the Politicization of Europe’ aims to survey some of these current debates and addresses once more the challenges of the EU polity in a context of multiple crises that confronted Europe in recent years. It supports a transformative view that involves balanced weights of optimism and pessimism in a belief that the unfold of current events and the way EU deals with delicate problems will put an increased pressure in the future on matters of accountability and will require some institutional adjustments that address democratic requirements for decision making. However in its…

Category: Regional Studies
Start Date: 10-24-2011 Last Day: 10-25-2011
The process through which government obtains the goods and services it needs to fulfil its public functions is generally known as public procurement. World wide this function represents significant portions of public spending and economic activity generally and it is no different in Africa.

However, in Africa this field has been poorly studied. A three-year project (2009-2011) funded by the British Academy and led by researchers at the…

1st International Conference - Gateway to Africa

1st International Conference - Gateway to Africa

Location: , Switzerland
Category: Regional Studies
Start Date: 04-04-2011 Last Day: 04-06-2011
Gateway to Africa is a unique conference. While there have been a proliferation of Africa- related conferences in recent years, most have recurring themes: AIDS, Conflict Resolution, Democracy, Political Transparency, Hunger, and Education. Others originate from advocacy, relief agencies and NGOs, and are by nature one-dimensional. After months of deliberation and consultation, we have concluded that what is conspicuously lacking in the international discourse on Africa, is the interdisciplinary approach. Health, education, access to and the harnessing of technology, energy policy, politics, Africa’s role and standing in world affairs– as a continent and as individual states- are all substantial topics.…
