The recent evolution of the European Union’s politics and policies has demonstrated that differentiation can no longer be treated as an anomaly in the integration process. This has posed a key set of questions to academics and policy-makers on whether, how much and what form of differentiation is not only compatible with but also conducive to a more effective, cohesive and democratic EU.The project EU IDEA – Integration and Differentiation for Effectiveness and Accountability – addresses these issues and try to find viable solutions. EU IDEA puts together 15 EU and extra-EU partners in a joint research and dissemination effort coordinated by IAI, starting from January 2019 and lasting for three years.
On the 28th of January a kick-off meeting will take place in Rome, which will constitute the opportunity to present to relevant stakeholders the new project on differentiated integration coordinated by IAI, entitled EU IDEA – Integration and Differentiation for Effectiveness and Accountability, putting together 15 EU and extra-EU partners in a joint research and dissemination effort funded by the European Commission within the program Horizon 2020.
