Join this event



The conference addresses those who show a genuine interest in enhancing their research skills in European studies and in contributing to developing a transnational network of contacts and cooperation. The two day conference aims to transmit knowledge about the EU economic, social and political responses vis-à-vis the ongoing crisis, to draw together scholars, researchers, experts, civil society activists and to encourage an exchange of views. The purpose of this event is to provide a proper context for mutual dialogue, joint knowledge and a better understanding of the challenges the EU faces in times of economic crisis.

Who will take part in our academic event?
Participants from the EU and non-EU countries, international experts, MA students, PhD candidates, post-doc fellows, researchers, civil society activists, NGO leaders, consultants, policy advocates and many more.

What kind of opportunities does this conference offer?
Two days of sharing the latest academic research results, excellent networking opportunities, possibilities to create links for future cooperation between in the field of academic (preparing potential research projects, participation in upcoming events, establishing common publishing goals).

The event is part of the EURINT conference series which was successfully launched in 2013 in the frame of the Jean Monnet Life Long Learning Programme. Since 2013 the EURINT conference series has established itself as a visible academic event in field of European Studies and in this regard we aim at developing it into a traditional conference series.


The purpose of this event is to provide a proper context for mutual dialogue, joint knowledge and a better understanding of the challenges the EU faces in the current context marred by an ongoing economic recession. In this line, the conference seeks to bring participants together under a common roof, where European values are widely shared and diffused beyond the national differences that characterise us. This common approach will build stronger and more effective future partnerships and cooperation opportunities. In this regard, we want to lay the foundations of a strong network of young researchers and specialists who will hopefully make positive changes in the future of the EU integration project.

The programme is structured around scientific sessions with the aim of providing participants with a comprehensive understanding of the EU's challenges in times of crisis. The conference will comprise lectures delivered by international academic experts, which will be followed, after short brakes, by round tables and presentations of participants' recent research. Participants will be encouraged to take the floor with speakers and challenge them with their own views and reflections of the topic in a much more interactive way. This is your chance to present a topic that interests you and to take the role of speaker or moderator.

The conference welcomes contributions on the following topics:

1. The EU economy under siege. Lessons from Europe's long recession;
2. The macroeconomic (in)stability of the EU economy;
3. EU sustainable development, regional cohesion and European policies;
4. The EU social model at the crossroads;
5. The EU institutional framework. Time for a rethink?;
6. The impact of the European crisis on the EU's international role;

7. European Neighbourhood Policy / Eastern Partnership - post-Vilnius Summit future developments.
