Call for Papers: the 2nd International Conference on European Studies

“Comparing Regionalisms: the EU Model as Reference Point for Integrating Regions”
16 November 2018, Ateneo de Manila University, PHILIPPINES

The European Studies Program of the Ateneo de Manila University is pleased to announce a call for papers for the 2nd International Conference on European Studies – “Comparing Regionalisms: The EU Model as Reference Point for Integrating Regions.”
The post-World War II period has seen the development of regional blocs as individual nation-states sought strategies to cope with the complexities of globalization. These conglomerations of countries have evolved following different trajectories, and adapting to their unique historical circumstances. The majority of the studies on regionalism have tended to focus on the European Union, which is the oldest and most institutionally complex of the existing regional blocs. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in comparative regionalism, looking at how processes, policies, and state dynamics have shaped the integration among neighboring states. This multidisciplinary conference dovetails with this trend by encouraging contributions that compare how regional blocs address political, economic, social, cultural, and legal issues.
