“Euroscepticism and the Future of Europe: Views from the Capitals”, Virtual Debate with European Student Think Tank, January 22, 16:30 CET
Although the European Parliament elections in May 2019 did not mark the victory of populist forces across Europe, Euroscepticism still represents a significant challenge to the EU-policy making process. Trying to face the rise of this phenomenon, TEPSA and the European Student Think Tank are pleased to organise a presentation of the book “Euroscepticism and the Future of Europe: Views from the Capitals”. The event will take place online on Friday 22 January, at 16:30 CET.
The event will address which are the actual challenges Euroscepticism poses to the EU, and will provide the Polish perspective on the matter. Furthermore, this initiative aims to create a fruitful dialogue between participants and speakers on how the youth can get engage to counter Euroscepticism in member states and at the EU level. The event will be moderated by Pierfrancesco Maria Lanza, EST International Officer, and will count with the participation of the following panellists:
- Prof. Dr. Michael Kaeding, co-editor of the book and professor of European Integration and EU Politics at University of Duisburg-Essen.
- Prof. Natasza Styczyńska, co-author of the chapter of the book focusing on Euroscepticism in Poland, and Assistant Professor of Political Science at the Institute of European Studies, Jagiellonian University in Krakòw. She has also contributed a TEPSA Explainer on the topic of Euroscepticism in Poland with her co-author Zdzislaw Mach.
This event marks the publication of the book Euroscepticism and the Future of Europe: Views from the Capitals edited by Michael Kaeding, Johannes Pollak and Paul Schmidt. Eurosceptic parties are in government across Europe, and they have considerable influence over the national debate. “Euroscepticism and the Future of Europe: Views from the Capitals” maps and analyses this phenomenon across the continent. Over 40 authors have given their expert views on Euroscepticism in the EU, in neighbouring countries, and in candidate countries. “Euroscepticism and the Future of Europe: Views from the Capitals” is a political travel guide, taking you on a tour through the political diversity of Europe. You can purchase the book here.

DiCE Networking Conference on Brexit, 11-12 March 2021
Over the last decades, the EU has faced a number of crises, from financial and economic to migration crises, but also renewed geopolitical tensions, domestic opposition and Brexit. Such challenges have resulted in calls to make arrangements more flexible and adaptable to member states’ different needs and to different policy areas. Differentiation has gained prominence on the European agenda and is a crucial matter in today’s debates on the future of Europe, raising new questions: Is differentiation sustainable and acceptable? Can differentiation instead lead to democratic problems, or ultimately, disintegration?
The DiCE Networking Conference on Brexit aims at mobilizing experts and relevant stakeholders from policy-making, civil society and academia and bring them together for three roundtable debates, as well as a ‘witness panel’ with stakeholder involved in the Brexit negotiations. The conference focuses on the distinction between internal and external differentiation and on the role of Brexit for the future of the EU in general and the effects on differentiation research in particular. More information on the programme and how to attend the conference will be available soon.

DiCE is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) that brings together the three successful projects funded by the EU on ‘Past, present and future of differentiation in European governance’: Integrating Diversity in the European Union (InDivEU), EU Integration and Differentiation for Effectiveness and Accountability (EU IDEA), and EU Differentiation, Dominance and Democracy (EU3D). DiCE aims to enhance the focus on Brexit and to broaden the general understanding on the different dynamics of internal and external differentiation.
