EURINT 2015: Regional development and integration. New challenges for the EU

22-23 May 2015, Iasi, Romania

The purpose of this 3rd edition of EURINT international conference entitled 'Regional development and integration. New challenges for the EU' is to provide a proper context for mutual dialogue, joint knowledge and a better understanding of the challenges the EU faces in the current European milieu marked by a gradual regionalization process.

Since becoming members of the EU the Central and Eastern European countries (CEECs) have experienced an ongoing process of decentralization, devolution and regionalization which, in turn, brought about different ways of envisaging regional development. By and large, regional development can be seen as a general effort to reduce regional economic disparities by supporting several economic activities in the less development regions. Main objectives have been large-scale infrastructure development, creating opportunities for inward investment, policies to enhance social cohesion and other top-down and bottom-up initiatives meant to help regions to catch-up and to establish economic clusters of development. 

The event is organised by Centre for European Studies from 'Alexandru Ioan Cuza' University of Iasi - Romania.

Justice Needs Trust: From Law & Order to Trust-Based Policies

26 May 2015, Brussels

Over the course of three years, the FIDUCIA team has investigated alternative ways of shaping policies addressing criminal justice and crime reduction across Europe.

The FIDUCIA project is based on the idea that the best starting point for criminal policy is to ask "Why do people obey the law?" rather than "Why do people break the law?" Inverting the  traditional criminological question in this way directs our attention to the fact that compliance with the law is to do with norms and values. The FIDUCIA message is that the best long-term results in domestic and European criminal policies are to be found in strategies that foster trust in justice and thus encourage normative compliance with the law.

This final Conference will provide an opportunity to learn about the projects’ findings and to consider the policy briefs that the FIDUCIA team has produced in relation to the four categories of criminal justice problem that are pan-European priorities: cybercrime, human trafficking and trafficking of goods, and the criminalisation of irregular migrants. The FIDUCIA team will also present findings from FIDUCIA surveys on trust in justice across Europe.
