INVITATION: EU± // Europeanisation in the times of corona pandemics (online)

The corona pandemics has touched all countries in the European Union as well as the European institutions. The live online debate will discuss how the concept of Europeanisation help us understand the current developments in the EU and anticipate the future.

WHEN - April 30., from 14:30–16:00

Has the crisis increased our understanding of how the national and European levels affect each other? Should we expect the EU to grow more together as a result of the crisis or will the member states grow apart?

Can the corona pandemics offer any new perspective on the Europeanisation debate so far? How has the EU and its role been understood in the public debate in different countries? Will it have a lasting impact on how the public and the politicians see the European integration? Which developments that we have witnessed so far can we consider the most important in terms of the future development in the EU? Does the concept of Europeanisation offer any hints regarding future developments?
