    What do national stakeholders think about differentiated integration?

    To answer this question, in the framework of the InDivEU project TEPSA and the Robert Schuman for Advanced Studies of the European University Institute are organising, in cooperation with the local TEPSA member institutes, seven Stakeholder Forums in selected EU capitals in 2020-21. These participatory workshops aim to mobilise the insights of key stakeholders on the challenges and opportunities of differentiated integration.

To this end, they will gather a focused group of around 20 stakeholders from five different sectors: policy-makers and civil servants, businesses and interest groups, civil society organisations, academia and think tanks, and journalists.

    The InDivEU Stakeholder Forums will gather stakeholders from the following EU countries:

    • Estonia (in cooperation with the Estonian Foreign Policy Institute)
    • Finland (in cooperation with the Finnish Institute of International Affairs)
    • France (in cooperation with the Centre International de Formation Européenne)
    • Netherlands (in cooperation with the Clingendael Institute)

    • Slovakia (in cooperation with the Institute of European Studies and International Relations at Comenius University in Bratislava)
    • Spain (in cooperation with Elcano Royal Institute)

    Due to the COVID-19 related restrictions currently in place and in order to safeguard the health of all participants, some workshops will take place in a virtual format.

    Webinar: “The Belt and Road Initiative in the EU”, January 28 (IAI, Italy)

    17:00Online Event

    In 2020, as the pandemic expanded globally, some began to wonder whether it was going to put an end to Xi Jinping’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The debate on the status of the BRI rarely focuses on its components within the EU. For this reason, this event will offer analysis from some of the EU’s countries that signed into the BRI, focusing on the state of development of the initiative in its economic components and political elements.

    DiCE Networking Conference on Brexit, 11-12 March 2021

    Online Event

    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.

    Key Speakers:

    • Brigid Laffan, European University Institute
    • John Erik Fossum, ARENA Centre for European Studies, University of Oslo
    • Nicoletta Pirozzi, Istituto Affari Internazionali

    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. More information on the project can be found here.
