Redefining Regions in Europe, Danube University Krems, Austria





INVITATION: Redefining Regions in Europe / Krems (AT) / 23-24 January 2019 

Redefining Regions Europe Programme January 2019

In April of last year, Danube University Krems started working on a research project on regional parliaments in the European Union. This project takes place in cooperation with Forum Morgen, the European Democracy Lab at the European School of Governance, the Berlin Social Science Centre (WZB), the University of Tübingen and Jagiellonian University Kraków.

On 23 and 24 January 2019, the project will be officially kicked off with a conference at Danube University Krems. Today, we have the pleasure to warmly invite you! Our goal is to reflect on the various academic debates on regions and regional governance in the EU, from multi-level parliamentarism to regional development, and from regional autonomy to populism. Together, we want to stake out this exciting field and provide a forum for debate on these issues. Besides facilitating the academic exchange between the participating institutions and third partners, the project also includes interventions in 15 regional parliaments in Austria, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, France, and Belgium. This allows us to build bridges between the academic and political debate on regions in the EU.

Attached, please find the preliminary programme. Please excuse minor mistakes and ambiguities, the final programme will be sent to you in early January.

To attend, please register here. The conference is entirely free of charge.

We’d be happy if you joined us in redefining regions in Europe! On behalf of the whole team, I wish you a very happy and relaxing holiday!
