    Conference: “War & Peace in the 21st Century: A world of two or three? The US, China and the EU in a new global order” (CIDOB, Spain)

    Barcelona, Spain

    For the last few years the fault-lines dividing the United States and the People’s Republic of China seem not only to consolidate but to deepen further. Some voices suggest that we might be on the edge of the formation of a new bipolar system with dynamics mimicking those of the Cold War in the 20th Century between the US and the USSR. From trade wars to technological competition the effects of their current incipient contest are already affecting the contours of the global order. Amid the potential clash between Washington and Beijing, the European Union is asking itself whether it could become a third global pole in its own right and if it is interested in it to happen. After the Parliamentary elections in May 2019 and the constitution of the new EU Commission, new European leaderships must take strategic decisions on what the role of the European Union amid this contest should be. At the same time, Russia also tries to play a leading role in shaping the new world order. What should the EU do in order to secure its positions as a third independent voice? How would transatlantic relations be reshaped in this context? A new distribution of power might come hand-in-hand with substantial changes in the international order. How would the global liberal order change in light of a tripolar distribution of power? Is there anything different the EU can offer amid this change?

    Seminar: “Has social democracy run out of steam?” (Sciences Po, France)

    Paris, France

    CEE General Seminar “Has social democracy run out of steam?“, by Roberto Frega, Centre d’étude des mouvements sociaux (CEMS), CNRS.

    The paper examines the political crisis of social democratic parties in Western Europe in light of its impact on the social democratic emancipatory project, and asks whether the first calls the second into question. It first begins by defining social democracy as an emancipatory project, and identifies three major historical phases which correspond to three distinct conceptions of the project. Section two examines recent literature in comparative welfare state economics, political sociology, and studies on populism and authoritarianism, to show how the socioeconomic transformations of the last five decades have enlarged and fragmented the constituency of social democratic parties, and contends that this situation has produced powerful tensions between the normative and the mundane dimensions of the social democratic project. Three major dilemmas – economic, cultural, and political – leading to three deep conflicts internal to the social democratic constituency are identified and discussed. Combining these empirical findings with the three rival interpretations of the social democratic project introduced in section one, section three develops three possible scenarios for the evolution of the social democratic project in the near future. Section four assesses the likelihood and political meaning of each of the three scenarios for the pursuit of the social democratic project.
