Summary

This chair is based on three premises. First, it will not be possible to increase the EU’s voice in the world without solving the underlying internal economic and democratic problems that fuel the Eurosceptic and anti-Establishment challenge. Second, the response to this challenge requires not only an increase in information activities about the EU and its policies, but also scientific research and academic reflection about what can be improved and how, in constant contact with policy-makers and civil society. Third, economic processes do not take place in isolation from social and political processes. Critical economic issues such as the Euro crisis involve political choices, and political choices, in turn, are influenced by economic factors. This chair aims to maximise the unique benefits of interdisciplinary social science in the study of the EU.The chair will introduce two compulsory courses on EU governance and EU public and economic policies in one of the most popular degrees of the university, one summer school on European integration for engineers and architects, and a module for the doctoral school with prominent international guests. The chair will also promote scholarly research in EU political economy through two research projects and the supervision of doctoral theses and coordination of special issues of the European Journal of Government and Economics. It will also organise number of promotional events to be in contact with school teachers, policy makers, and civil society, and produce contents such as a book, a website, open educational resources, and extensive presence on the social media.
