Conference on the European Union, 26-27 February 2016, University of Pittsburgh

The European Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh, in cooperation with the European Union Studies Association invites your participation in the Eleventh Annual Graduate Student Conference on the European Union

The EU for Whom? Democracy and Demography in a Shifting Europe

University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The world is watching as a determined Europe strives to remain united and bridge the democratic deficit. Eurosceptic parties and secessionist referenda are gaining ground within and amongst the member states. As refugee talks become mired in discussion on infrastructure and resources, there lies a deep disagreement on European identity. Is this the same debate that member states have been having for years? Or is this the beginning of a new set of challenges? The Organizing Committee of the Eleventh Annual Graduate Student Conference on the European Union welcomes submissions from all disciplines and topics including, but not limited to, EU politics, governance, economics, history, security studies, institutions and behavior studies, as well as policy, enlargement, immigration, development, trade, and foreign policy. Papers addressing the theme of the conference will receive special consideration.

Abstracts should be 250-300 words in length. Preference will be given to abstracts that clearly specify the research design of the paper, including its theoretical approach and methods. Abstracts must be submitted on-line at http://www.eustudies.org/. Please also upload a current CV with your submission. Participation is limited to authors enrolled in degree-granting graduate or professional programs at the time of the conference. Housing is provided for accepted conference participants.

The University Library System at the University of Pittsburgh houses one of the largest and most complete archives of primary and secondary documents on the European Union, dating back to the beginnings of the European Coal and Steel Community. Conference presenters are given access to the archive for research during their stay.
