Event description

Description

This workshop assesses the extent to which the EU is able to promote effectively its norms and constitutional values in neighbouring countries. In exploring the mediating influences over the EU’s Europeanization impact, the presentations and discussion will consider the effectiveness of current mechanisms and strategies for promoting core EU values (e.g. rule of law, human rights, democracy) and consider the future prospects for Europeanization.

The workshop will comprise three sessions. The first will assess the EU’s effectiveness in promoting core EU values as part of its faltering enlargement process to include Turkey and the Western Balkans. A second session will switch the focus to Eastern European counties involved the European Neighbourhood Policy and the Eastern Partnership. Again, the focus will be on assessing how effective the EU’s mechanisms and strategies for promoting values are particularly given mediating contextual factors. In both sessions, consideration will be given to the future prospects for EU-inspired Europeanization and how key EU objectives in terms of promoting core values might be delivered. A third session switches attention to the potential for ‘reverse Europeanization’ in the case of the United Kingdom as part of the ‘Brexit’ process and the implications such a dynamic will have for policy and the UK polity. For each session an invited speaker will present for 15-20 mins and postgraduate students will be invited to act as respondents before a wider discussion of the presentation and the issues raised takes place.
