The conference will bring together around 50 current and alumni KFG fellows from all over the world. By mirroring the latest research agenda of the KFG and under titles such as "European Identity and Its Consequences", "Inside Out: EU and Comparative Regionalism" and "The EU and the Global Economy", eight panels will discuss various aspects of the current research on European affairs and beyond. The aim of the conference is to analyze whether our latest findings are still valid or need to be revised in light of recent developments.
As a conference highlight on Friday evening, a public panel discussion on "The Euro Crisis and the Future of European Integration" will bring together different perspectives on one of the most prominent and pestering problems of present Europe. Featured panelists include Charalampos Koutalakis (Chef de Cabinet, Greek Prime Minister's Office), Brigid Laffan (University College Dublin), Fritz W. Scharpf (Emeritus Director of the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies), and Vivien Schmidt (Boston University).The programme is available here (PDF).
