Europeanization Goes East

Summer term 2008

Research on Europeanization has not stopped with the “old” member states. With the accession of Eastern European countries, it has found a new laboratory that allows for the scrutiny of concepts and explanatory approaches in different political, societal, economical, and cultural contexts. The lecture series deals with the question to what extent the effects of Europeanization on the domestic structures of accession states differ from those we were able to observe in “old” member states and how differences within and between “old” and “new” states can be accounted for. The lecturers are political scientists as well as political practitioners, respectively, and will discuss core questions and problems concerning Eastern Enlargement based on their expertise and from an Europeanization perspective.

  • Conductor: Prof. Dr. Tanja A. Börzel
  • Time: Thursday, 08.30-10.00 Uhr
  • Place: Ihnestr. 21, Lecture room A (U-Bahn Thielplatz)
