The Review of European Affairs

Call for papers 2018

Academic debate and popular media discourse on the prospects of the European integration process thrive. Big narratives fuelled by the debate on the Future on Europe, by progress in Brexit negotiations, by frequently overly flashy political debate constitute a very important part of the narrative. In this way, they impose an outside-in perspective on developments in the EU. Certainly, these narratives are complemented by a less pronounced but equally valid debates that depict the bottom-up dynamics that nurture the EU today. Here, developments in the EU members states, changing attitudes to the very idea of European integration, benevolent attitude of large parts of the society to the foundational values and principles of the EU and several other issues define the beat of the discussion. And as questions of security return to the mainstream debates on the EU and liberal political, economic and social order can no longer taken for granted in the EU, it is imperative to rethink these two ways of thinking and debating about the EU and the European integration process.

To this end, the Editors of The Review of European Affairs invite interested Authors to submit papers that address, but are not limited to, the following issues and topics:

  • Conceptual and case-study driven approaches to current developments in the EU,
  • Advances in diverse fields of the EU policymaking,

  • The single market and its integrative potential,
  • Cultural relations,
  • External relations of the EU,
  • EU as a global actor,
  • Integration process in the world from the European perspective.
