Dear friends and colleagues of the Kolleg-Forschergruppe,

Welcome to our latest newsletter edition!

Since the summer term has come to an end, we would like to take the opportunity to present you the past KFG events in detail. One of the most remarkable events of this summer has been the KFG & MAXCAP participation at the Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften (Long Night of the Sciences) at the campus of Freie Universität Berlin in Dahlem. The relations between Europe and Russia in times of the Ukrainian crisis being at the center of the discussions, this event covered a very current and crucial topic of international politics. Moreover, there have also been a lot of other fascinating and insightful KFG events in these months. Inken von Borzyskowski’s Workshop and Roundtable “Elections in the Developing World” covered the challenge of free and fair elections in developing countries. Kiran Patel hold an author workshop on “Hidden Continuities: From Interwar to Postwar Forms of Cooperation and Integration in Europe”, which rounded up the first set of workshop series organized by Kiran Patel and Wolfram Kaiser. Last but not least, the volume “European Public Spheres. Politics is Back” edited by Thomas Risse was presented to a broad public in Berlin as well as in Brussels.

We wish you happy holidays and hope to see you around by the start of the upcoming autumn term!

Warm regards,

Tanja A. Börzel, Thomas Risse & the KFG-Team
