Dear friends and colleagues of the Kolleg-Forschergruppe,
Welcome to the summer term and to our latest newsletter-edition!
In our current edition we will give you a brief update about what is going on at the Research College “The Transformative Power of Europe” and share with you our plans for the summer term. Without doubt, the KFG participation at the ISA in New Orleans from 18-21 February 2015 has been the most important event in the KFG’s winter schedule. The conference brought us many research ideas, inspiration for further projects, and new contacts to other scholars of Comparative Regionalism and International Relations. Apart from sharing with you our ISA impressions we will inform you about the outcome of the second workshop by Kiran Klaus Patel and Wolfram Kaiser and say a warm goodbye to the major project on “The EU as a Security Actor in Asia-Pacific” of the NFG Research Group.
To meet us this summer term, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the KFG panel discussion and the MAXCAP debate at the “Long Night of Sciences” on 13 June, 2015. You are also invited to participate in the roundtable on "Elections and Democracy in the Developing World", organized by KFG fellow Inken von Borzyskowski on 19 May, 2015 and to stop by the book presentation of “European Public Spheres”, edited by Thomas Risse in Berlin and Brussels.
Last but not least, we are proud to present to you our account on Academia.edu. On Academia you are given the possibility to socialize with other academics interested in KFG topics and to stay updated on our working papers and activities.
We wish you a successful start of the summer term and hope that you enjoy this newsletter edition!
Tanja A. Börzel, Thomas Risse & the KFG-Team
