    An initiative of the office of CIFE in Brussels and of the group of CIFE Alumni in Brussels

    The CIFE office in Brussels regularly organises lunchtime debates on the major questions that are at the centre of interest concerning the European Union. Five times a year, the “Midis du CIFE” provide an opportunity for notable actors and observers of the European integration process to comment and debate with the audience on topics concerning the internal and external policies of the European Union. The success of these meetings, which take place at the University Foundation in Brussels, is not for the least part due to the active participation of the public. Their guests mainly come from the European institutions, from universities, business, foundations, civil society organisations, and the press. Numerous former students of the CIFE programmes also take part in these events which they regard as career long learning opportunities.

    Conference: "EMU at 20: Quo Vadis?” (College of Europe)

    2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the annual political economy conference of the College of Europe’s Department of European Political and Governance Studies. Participants are invited to reflect on changes to euro area governance over the last decade in order to identify whether these changes have yielded their expected outcomes, which reforms remain in order to ensure a robust monetary union, and the political feasibility of such reforms. The evolution of the ECB and the establishment of banking union are the focus. Leading academics and practitioners will engage in a debate on the future of economic and monetary union.

    Registrations for this event will be open until 11 March 2019 at 14:00.

    Conference: “Cultural Pluralism in Cities of the Global South”, 20 – 21 March 2019 (RSCAS, EUI, Italy)

    Sala Europa, Villa Schifanoia

    Conference “Cultural Pluralism in Cities of the Global South” 20 – 21 March 2019, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies

    This conference focuses on cities that are emerging (or striving to emerge) as regional centres of power in the Global South. We focus on capital cities and major urban centres in Asian, African, and Latin American countries at different stages of the nation building process. We want to unpack the power relations within the city and the ways in which the city projects itself beyond the national scale and positions itself both at a wider regional level and within global cultural hierarchies.

    Seminar: “The EU, Migrants and Refugees: Building Walls, Fueling Global Crisis?” (NUPI, Norway)

    04:00Norway House, Brussels

    The summer of 2015 was a turning point in the history of the EU. The massive influx of migrants not only manifested a global refugee crisis, but was also a huge challenge for Europe; the EU apparatus proved unable to respond sufficiently. Since then, the political debate on migration in Europe has been polarizing, heated, and even dangerous. For European decision-makers to find a joint policy on migration has been an extremely difficult task, eventually leading the EU to harden its approach by boosting its frontier and coastguard. This has led to a decrease in the number of arrivals, even though in 2018, 68,5 million people were displaced, nearly 3 million more than the year before. A key issue in this regard is that closing the borders may force people to take refuge in weak or vulnerable states, leading to increased pressure on systems that are already struggling to stay afloat. This may potentially lead to more conflict, radicalization, and eventually also more refugees. It should be recognized that the current refugee and migration crisis is not just a local or European problem – it is global. Building a “Fortress Europe” might be necessary as a short-term solution. However, a long-term solution would require different approach. At this event, we will discuss the EU’s crisis response towards the countries in the Middle East and the Sahel where migrants and refugees come from or are important transit countries – is it helping, or is it counterproductive? The event is organized by EUNPACK and is part of the project’s final conference which will take place at CEPS 18-19 March 2019.

    Seminar: “Assessing the EU’s Toolbox in Handling Internal and External Challenges” (NUPI, Norway)

    21:00Norway House, Brussels

    When the EU launched its Global Strategy in June 2016, it stated that “We need a stronger Europe. This is what our citizens deserve, this is what the wider world expects.” However, in an already fragile world, a range of challenges emerged like beads on a string: Brexit, the election of US President Trump, and the proliferation of authoritarianism, populism, and nationalism in the EUs immediate and wider neighbourhood. The protracted crises in Ukraine, Afghanistan, the Middle East, North Africa, the Sahel, and continuing uncertainties in the Balkans, are of no less concern. Together these events have led some to argue that the very liberal world order of free trade, international law, and multilateralism, is in decline. The obvious consequence is that it is becoming increasingly challenging for the EU to balance its autonomy and interests with those of other key stakeholders both on a national, regional and international level. In this evolving context of new internal and external challenges, what is the EU’s actual toolbox in delivering at home as well as abroad? Can the EU regain the trust of its citizens as well as those living in conflict areas whose rights it wishes to protect or promote? What role can the EU have in the transformation of its Eastern neighbours into peaceful and prosperous democracies? And what lies ahead for the relationship between the EU and other major powers such as Turkey? To highlight these crucial questions, we discuss findings from four, international and interdisciplinary H2020-funded research projects: EUNPACK, EU-STRAT, FEUTURE, and INFORM. The event is organized by EUNPACK and is part of the project’s final conference which will take place at CEPS 18-19 March 2019.

    Colloque International: "Construire les politiques de lutte contre la pauvreté urbaine à partir du terrain" (SPCEE, France)

    PARIS – SCIENCES PO

    Construire les politiques de lutte contre la pauvreté urbaine à partir du terrain : De l’analyse de la mise en œuvre des politiques publiques à l’identification des processus d’insertion sociale et économique,  Colloquium, Paris 4-5 July 2019

    Organisé dans le cadre du programme de recherche MARG-IN, qui est financé par l’Agence nationale de la recherche, ce colloque entend contribuer aux débats en cours sur la lutte contre la pauvreté en identifiant, à partir de l’examen des jeux d’acteurs liés à la mise en œuvre des politiques, les processus d’insertion sociale et économique qui pourraient servir de base à la construction de nouveaux dispositifs en phase avec la demande sociale et avec les réalités locales.

    Il se déroulera à Paris les 4 et 5 juillet 2019. Pendant ces deux jours, les chercheurs seront invités à échanger leurs points de vue avec les acteurs institutionnels, les acteurs de terrain (professionnels de l’action sociale et militants associatifs) et les personnes en situation précaire. Ces échanges serviront de base à l’écriture d’un texte commun jetant les bases d’une approche de la lutte contre la pauvreté « par le bas », et à large diffusion.
