The conference is intended to contribute to building an interdisciplinary transnational network for European Studies across the Nordic countries. The conference will be hosted at the Kristiansand campus of the University of Agder and bring together scholars working on European integration across the Nordic countries from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The discussants of the scholarly papers will include policymakers and practitioners.
The conference will explore recent developments of “European Differentiated Integration”, broadly understood. It is based on the Jean Monnet Centre’s focus on differentiation in Europe, including both EU- and non-EU member states, formal and informal arrangements, enhanced integration vs. disintegration, as well as various levels, actors, and policy fields. The geographic focus is not restricted to the Nordic region but encompasses the whole continent.
The conference language is English.
