Energy Dependence and Transition. EGPP Special Seminar series on Ukraine and Europe @ Sala del Capitolio, Badia and Zoom
May 25 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Join Ilaria Conti who will discuss the strong dependence of many European countries on Russian gas and oil exports.
Given the strong dependence of many European countries on Russian gas and oil exports, the war in Ukraine has created fundamentally new conditions for the European energy policy leading to calls and first steps (such as the scrapping of the North Stream 2 pipeline) to reduce this dependence. The seminar addresses dependence issues, as well as debates on the impact of the war to the transition to renewable energy sources, the redirection of trade from Russia to other providers, and the role of nuclear power (with potential divisive effects both between and within member-states).

Politics and European identity. Special Seminar series on Ukraine and Europe @ Sala Europa, Villa Schifanoia and Zoom
Jun 1 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Join Liesbet Hooghe and Gary Marks who will discuss how we need to adapt our theoretical lenses to better assess the implications of Ukraine for the course of European integration.
How should the Ukraine war and more generally, geopolitics, shape our understanding of European integration? Liberal institutionalism, neofunctionalism, and postfunctionalism have in common that they ignore heavy international conflict. Neorealism ignores domestic politics. How, in short, do we need to adapt our theoretical lenses to better assess the implications of Ukraine for the course of European integration and the nature of political competition?
