The panel sessions are organized around four sets of topics treating conflicts, challenges and changes to European transnationalizing or re-nationalizing societies. Resistances and Backlashes brings together research on populism and social backlash, new parties and power balances, nationalism, mobilizations, and anti-politics. Migration and mobilities treats resilience and change of migration, mobility and integration policies.  Civil Society and democracy looks at where and who decides and the changes in European decision-making, governance and relations to society. Diversity, equality and identity focuses on issues relating to citizenship and multiple identities, the intersections of class, gender, sexuality, age, religion, race, or disability, religion and secularism in Europe.
