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?

Security politics and European defense. Special Seminar series on Ukraine and Europe @ Sala Triaria, Villa Schifanoia and online
Jun 8 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Join Stephanie Hofmann for another of the EGPP special series on the Ukraine crisis
EU and NATO member states have made big announcements after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Some who are not members of NATO, debate whether to join the military alliance. Others declare a significant increase in their defense budget and yet others again, who had opted out of the EU’s security policy, now will hold a referendum to join it. And the EU has converted institutional structures to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine. In this session, we will discuss these initiatives and asses what kind of change they signify and to what possible effect.
