Postfunctionalism reversed: Solidarity and rebordering during the Corona-crisis • Philipp Genschel @ Sala Europa, Villa Schifanoia & Zoom
Nov 4 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

A Research Seminar organised in the framework of the European Governance & Politics Programme Seminar Series.

Abstract: Postfunctionalism posits a tradeoff between the functional scale of governance and the territorial scope of community: functional scale is large and transnational for efficiency reasons; community is small-scale and (sub-)national for reasons of social trust and collective identification. The Corona-crisis has turned this tradeoff upside down: it has shrunk functional scale to the (sub-)national level in the name of security, while lifting expectations of community to the grand transnational scale in the name of solidarity. This reversal of scales has resulted in a rapid rebordering of the Single Market and the Schengen area on the one hand, and a significant debordering of fiscal risk and burden sharing on the other hand. We reconstruct the evolution of this double-movement from January to August 2020, contrast it to historical trends in the scale-community tradeoff of European integration, and discuss implications for the postfunctionalist paradigm.

Speaker: Prof. Philipp Genschel

Chair: Prof. Daniele Caramani
