Call for Papers: Deadline 30 September 2013

‘The European Union in International Affairs IV’

Brussels, 22-24 May 2014

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 Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS) and Egmont – the Royal Institute for International Relations invite papers for the fourth ‘European Union in International Affairs’ (EUIA) Conference.

The EUIA Conference provides 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 topical issues such 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. As such, the EUIA Conference integrates ‘inside out, outside in’ perspectives covering different policy fields.

The EUIA Conference is open to all relevant disciplines and sub-disciplines. Through keynote addresses and policy link panels it fosters 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 your paper abstract (300 words maximum) through the EUIA Conference management platform.

Deadline for paper proposals: 30 September 2013

Submission of full papers: 9 May 2014

On behalf of the EUIA Conference organisers: IES-VUB, IEE-ULB, UNU-CRIS and Egmont
