In many ways, the EU appears to be in a period of transition: recovering from the financial crisis, continuing to implement the Lisbon Treaty’s provisions, and awaiting a new set of European elections. Have these developments produced change in the EU’s politics and policies, or has it been Brussels as usual? The Organizing Committee of the Ninth Annual Graduate Student Conference on the European Union welcomes papers addressing the theme of the conference, as well as others related to the EU. We seek 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 EU policy-making, enlargement, immigration, development, trade, and foreign policy.
Submission Deadline for Abstracts has been extended: December 13, 2013
Abstracts should be 250-300 words in length. Preference will be given to abstracts that clearly specify the paper’s research design, including theoretical approach and methods. Abstracts must be submitted online. Please also upload a current C.V. with your submission. Only authors enrolled in degree-granting graduate or professional programs at the time of the conference are eligible to participate. Housing is provided for conference participants.
The University of Pittsburgh’s library system 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 while in Pittsburgh.
