Teaching EU in Times of New Global Realities: The Need for a New Paradigm

Activiteit: Oral presentation


European Integration qualifies as perhaps the most interesting experiment in present-day international relations. Throughout its existence, the European Union’s power as an economic, political or military actor has changed constantly. The current status of the EU has an impact on how the EU functions and is perceived in the globalising world we live in today.

Over the past decades, ‘the EU in the world’ has been a key theme in European Studies, International Relations, European Law, European Economics, European History and other studies of European integration. These studies acknowledge the fact that the EU ‘as such’ has acquired a role on the global stage, alongside and, in close cooperation with its own Member States. While knowledge thus exists, it is confined to the disciplinary silos that make up our scholarly community. The present conference aims to confront the different perspectives and insights to better understand the role of the Union in a globalising world.

To address this question, Jean Monnet Chair European Politics & Governance Prof. Dr. Anjo Harryvan and Chair of European Law Prof. Dr. Ramses Wessel, together with their teams, organised a conference themed ‘The European Union in a Globalising World: Multidisciplinary Perspectives’, in cooperation with Globalisation Studies Groningen, Faculty of Law and Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen, on 1-2 June 2023 in Van Swinderen Huys, Groningen, The Netherlands. Both established and early-career academics (PhD candidates and post-docs) with an interest in the European Union and its position in the world were invited.
