    Integrating Diversity in the European Union (InDivEU) Online Mid-term Conference

    Online

    2020 funded research project aimed at contributing concretely to the current debate on the ‘Future of Europe’ by assessing, developing and testing a range of models and scenarios for different levels of integration among EU member states. It runs from January 2019 to December 2021, and its research agenda is organised around four interconnected interdisciplinary blocks. The foundations analyse the philosophical foundations of legitimate Differentiated Integration (DI), the legal and constitutional acceptability of DI and a thorough exploration of the DI preferences of citizens, governments and parties; The evolution investigates the patterns, causes and effects of DI; The zooming-in considers internal and external differentiation, differentiation through flexible implementation and alternative forms of differentiation; The scenarios provide evidence-based advice on designing future DI. Now halfway through the InDivEU project, the eight substantive work packages (WP) that compose the research blocks gather together to present and discuss the results achieved so far.

    Please note: the Webinar will take place via ZOOM. Participation is only possible upon registration. The link to the meeting will be sent only to registered participants.

    EU Diplomacy & Diplomatic Skills (College of Europe, Bruges)

    Bruges

    The European Union’s diplomatic efforts and external representation are inherently different from the Member-States’ external policies. The EU, with its strong background in peace mediation and public diplomacy, can be considered a unique diplomatic entity and a fascinating study-object.

    This three-day interactive course is designed for the participants to learn about EU diplomacy, to share experiences and to improve their diplomatic skills. After a short introduction to the EU's external affairs and the European External Action Service (EEAS), the course will focus on relevant diplomatic skills. Practical sessions and exercises on political reporting, effectively communicating across cultures, and political analysis will add to the participants’ knowledge and skillset.

    All modules are delivered by high-level experienced professionals in the field of European and national diplomacy, reporting, communication and negotiations. The programme is designed to be as interactive as possible; active participation is required and networking opportunities are strongly encouraged throughout the course.

    5-7 October 2020
