EIPA Conference: “Making European Policies Work – Next Generation EIPA”, October 28 (EIPA, Maastricht)

This year EIPA is celebrating its 40th anniversary. Much has changed compared to EIPA’s early days, yet the challenge of helping implementation of European policies by administrations at all levels of governance remains at the heart of EIPA’s mission.

The past decade, with the euro crisis, the migration crisis, and now the pandemic, has shown what it means to be part of a multilevel system. In close cooperation with national and European administrations, our anniversary event “Making European Policies Work – Next Generation EIPA” will address the need for improvements in the EU’s multilevel administrative system to ensure ownership for objectives and reforms for the years to come.

How to design our multi-level administrative arrangements? How to improve mutual learning and transnational cooperation? What role should political leadership and citizen engagement play in this process?

We will look at the new challenges for EU policy implementation from three perspectives:

  • the design of multi-level administrative arrangements;
  • the contribution of mutual learning and transnational cooperation; and
  • the role of political leadership and citizen engagement.

The conference will conclude with an address by Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission.
