Join Robert Daly (Wilson Center), June Mei (consultant and interpreter), and Matt Sheehan (Paulson Institute) on Monday, November 16 at 8:00 a.m. EST for a discussion about the many ways the U.S.-China relationship has affected Americans, and the views that have developed in the United States as a result.

An Update on EU-Iran Relations
Location:
Zoom
Sponsored by:
European Studies Center and European Union Center of Excellence
See Details

The EU's relations with Iran have strengthened since the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in 2015. These relations have become more important now, as the current US administration is determined to further undermine the agreement by pressing the UN to restore economic sanctions and extend the arms embargo against Iran. The EU’s disagreement with the US position has brought the nuclear non-proliferation regime, the maintenance of international agreements, and the future of European relations with the US and Iran at a crossroads. This panel will explore these topics and provide an update on the current state of EU-Iran relations after the US elections.

The EU's Covid Recovery Plan: Solution for a Worldwide Just Clean Energy Transition. A panel discussion with EU Delegates.
Location:
Zoom
Sponsored by:
European Studies Center and European Union Center of Excellence along with University of Colorado-Boulder Colorado European Union Center for Excellence
See Details

Around the world, countries are undertaking fiscal stimulus responses in order to accelerate their recovery from COVID-19. On 21 July 2020, EU leaders agreed to a €1,824.3 trillion (ca $2 trillion) package which includes a €1,074.3 billion budget for the next seven years and a major stimulus package of €750 billion. The Next Generation EU (NGEU) stimulus package will help to rebuild and to support investment in green and digital transitions. Climate action is at the forefront of this historic agreement with a target of 30% of total expenditures going towards efforts to reach EU climate neutrality by 2050. A part of the package/agreement is the €150 billion Just Transition Mechanism (JTM). By targeting support to the most affected regions, the JTM program aims to guarantee that the EU’s “climate-neutral economy happens in a fair way, leaving no one behind.”

The EU also seeks to provide worldwide impact by serving as a global leader on reaching science-based targets of the Paris Agreement and by promoting implementation of ambitious environmental, energy, and climate policies with partner countries. Last year the EU announced the European Green Deal - Europe's new growth strategy for achieving climate neutrality by mid-century. Most recently the European Commission proposed to increase the 2030 target to reduce EU greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% in the next decade, compared to 1990 levels. As a part of the EU's climate neutrality agenda, innovative actions were proposed on clean hydrogen economy, methane emissions reduction, energy efficiency in the building sector, and offshore wind deployment.

What does Europe's drive for climate neutrality mean for the transatlantic cooperation? How can the EU and the next U.S. Administration work together towards a shared transatlantic agenda?

CoE: Cementing the Boundaries of Frenchness: Race/Ethnicity and Belonging in a Non-Color-Blind French Republic
Sponsored by:
European Studies Center and European Union Center of Excellence along with University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign European Union Center
See Details

France is often portrayed as a case of color-blind civic ‘assimilation’ despite a shift to ‘integration’ since the 1980s. However, the creation of institutions such as the High Council for Integration (1989-2013) and the first ever census-based survey on the assimilation of immigrants and their France-born children (Mobilité géographique et insertion sociale, Tribalat 1993) signaled starting from the 1990s the foregrounding of cultural differentiation in public life and the promotion of ethnic origin as a framework and primary principle of classification (Bertaux 2016:1496). In this process, integration came to be perceived as a one-way ticket for ‘ethnic Others of foreign descent’ to embrace the cultural values and institutions of a purportedly homogeneous ‘non-ethnic’ core of Français de souche (‘French of French stock’). Papers in this panel argue that race/ethnic relations in France today have inherited this ideology. They show that audible characteristics of local French, a shared linguistic heritage in Marseilles, are dismissed in the speech of working-class youth (Evers), historically attested pronunciation features are recast as multiethnic innovations in working-class Parisian French (Fagyal), years of ‘banlieue literature’ addressing the themes of race and citizenship have suffered from distorted representations in the media (Horvath), and entire segments of the French population now consider themselves Citizen Outsiders for whom the cultural characteristics of the ‘uniform whiteness’ of the Français de souche remain largely alien (Beaman). The panel casts light on the utopia of a color-blind French Republic that, in its efforts at treating citizens equally before the law, makes it impossible for them to belong.  

Panelists:
Jean Beaman, University of California Santa-Barbara
Cécile Evers Cecile, Pomona College
