First ENTER Spring School 2019

March 11 - March 14

(Re-)Conceptualizing or (Re-)Theorizing how the EU faces New Realities

Join our spring school with more than 11 internationally renowned scholars and learn about cutting-edge ways to analyse current EU foreign policy. There is no participation fee, and we offer a generous bursary to our participations.

11-14 March 2019, Darmstadt, Germany

Rationale and Aims:

The world experiences an ongoing reconfiguration of power as well as increased contestation of the liberal global order. The EU’s neighbourhood is increasingly conflict prone and instable, triggering migration flows and the proliferation of illiberal values. The international turbulence appears in parallel to EU-domestic conflicts, marked by austerity, Brexit, nationalism, populism and protectionism. The training school examines if traditional theories are outdated given that they employ theoretical concepts to analyse increasingly dis-jointed realities. Similarly, the school addresses the issue whether it is time to reverse traditional inside-out research agendas, portraying EU foreign policy as a projection of European values and interests. The training school reaches out to upcoming analysts who will conceptualize and theorize the EU facing a new world order. It aims to train and strengthen an emerging interdisciplinary community of early career researchers. Students will not only be taught the theories of yesterday but also the tools it takes to (re-)conceptualize and (re-)theorize the new realities in which the EU is situated.
