Call For Papers

What can you expect?
The Centre for European Studies within Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, is organizing the sixth EURINT edition, May 19-20, 2017. This edition will focus on the resilience capacity of the EU to react to the current economic and political challenges. The economic challenges are associated with the post-crisis recovery, while the political challenges stem from the rise of nationalism which has recently hit the EU.

What about the topic?
Today’s European Union (EU) is being confronted with both economic and political challenges. The economic challenges are associated with the post-crisis recovery, while the political challenges stem from the rise of nationalism which has recently hit the EU. Against this background, the Centre for European Studies within Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, is organizing the sixth edition of EURINT, which will focus on the resilience capacity of the EU to react to these challenges.
Resilience is a concept which has increasingly been used in the general public discourse, as well as within the EU debates in relation to economic development, but also to the security and defence issues. Moreover, various organizations and agencies, research institutes and experts in various areas are proposing resilience analyses as being the most appropriate alternative to replace other key concepts in designing the European and national policies. This is due to the resilience capacity to accommodate the multitude of factors and conditions that influence long-term growth and development in a systemic approach. After the recent economic crisis, most of the European countries did not manage to get back on the growth path, and they are still facing a sluggish growth. Understanding the factors that foster / undermine economic resilience is the key to a faster recovery.
Besides the economic issues, further challenges have emerged, testing the EU’s cohesion. The refugee crisis forced the EU to deal with huge refugee inflows escaping conflict in their country, which has generated internal concerns over how to deal best with resettling people. Soon after, the Brexit referendum has further challenged the EU’s internal stability and questioned the viability of the European project on the long-term.
Therefore, faced with the current economic crisis affecting the European economies, and considering the pitfalls of the overall integration process and its own legitimacy, the Union itself must become not only ’smarter’, more inclusive and more sustainable, but also more resilient, more capable of reacting to different internal and external shocks.
