The Second Euroacademia International Conference
The European Union and the Politicization of Europe

6-8 December 2012, Budapest, Hungary

CALL FOR PANELS AND PAPERS

Deadline for Panels: 25 September 2012
Deadline for Papers: 15 October 2012

Is the EU becoming an increasingly politicized entity? Is the on-going politicization of Europe a structured or a messy one? Do political parties within the European Parliament act in a manner that strengthens the view of the EU as an articulate political system? Are there efficient ways for addressing the democratic deficit issue? Can we find usable indicators for detecting an emerging European demos and a European civil society? Does a Europeanization of the masses take place or the EU remains a genuinely elitist project? Did the Lisbon Treaty introduced significant changes regarding the challenges facing the EU? Can we see any robust improvements in the accountability of the EU decision making processes?
