Call for Papers for the Panel:
The Eurozone Crisis. Transformative Impact on the European Project and Model(s) of Capitalism
As part of
7th Euroacademia Forum of Critical Studies: Asking Big Questions Again
23 – 24 November 2018
Nice, Côte d’Azur, France
Deadline for Paper Proposals: 15th of October 2018
Europe in these days appears to move from one ‘crisis’ to the next. The deep and apparently perennial crisis of the Eurozone has been on the headlines for a couple of years now, and shows signs of a further exacerbation. The crisis raises several issues of interest for students of political science, political economy and international relations. What appears clear is that the problems of the Eurozone are signals of a weakening (if not an outright failure) of European integration as it was envisaged starting from the early 1990s. The political and cultural dimensions of the crisis of the Eurozone should thus not be overlooked, as well as its wider significance for the whole European project. The consequences of a falling apart of the Eurozone are unpredictable and may usher in a period of heightened political turbulence. In the wake of the Eurozone crisis, some commentators and scholars openly take into consideration the possibility that the European Union itself may be in danger. Moreover, the deeply transformative effects on the European model(s) of capitalism generated by the crisis are under everyone’s eyes.
The panel grapples with these issues adopting a wide outlook, welcoming contributions from students of economics or political economy, as well as political science and international relations.
Some suggested topics for the panel are:
~ How can the crisis of the European project be understood with reference to the various theories of European integration?
~ What agency is involved in the transformation of the European model(s) of capitalism?
~ What does the crisis of the Eurozone mean for the European Union’s role in global political and economic affairs?
~ The discourse and narrative of the Eurozone crisis: crisis for whom and for what purposes? Media and the crisis.
~ Austerity measures and their impact on the Eurozone crisis
~ Greece and the initial scenario of exiting the Eurozone
~ Brexit and the future of Europe
~ The Eurozone crisis and the crisis of European solidarity
~ European Central Bank and the Eurozone crisis
