Graduate Symposium Call for Papers


Dalhousie University Department of Political Science in conjunction with
The European Union Center for Excellence (EUCE) announces its
Annual Political Science Graduate Symposium

System Breakdown? Critical Reflections on the European Union in Crisis.
March 19-20, 2015, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

The current state of the European Union appears precarious. Reoccurring currency issues, increasingly insecure borders, economic stagnation, difficulties in migration flows, volatile politics, and waning public support for the Union, among other problems, have all given rise to debates over the future course of the world’s most ambitious supranational project. Scholars and practitioners are invited to critically reflect on these issues by examining ways we can learn from the European Union’s failures and successes and better identify best practices going forward.
