CFP – ECPR SG Citizenship 1st Bi-annual Conference and Workshop: ‘Citizenship and democracy in (dis)integrating communities’

CFP – ECPR SG Citizenship 1st Bi-annual Conference and Workshop: ‘Citizenship and democracy in (dis)integrating communities’

The ideal of citizenship and its role in building (political) communities and so democracy more broadly have perhaps never been under as much pressure as today. This is especially so against the backdrop of bespoke processes of community (dis)integration at local, national, international and cross-cutting levels. One example is the increased call for independence by “non-self-governing territories” which possess and make claim for distinct social and political identities, such as Catalonia. Another is seemingly dis-United Kingdom that is not-quite withdrawn…

European Academy of Religion Annual Conference 2019

European Academy of Religion Annual Conference 2019

Religion plays a central role in our world. Shared knowledge and academic reflection can stimulate a peaceful coexistence and avoid religious illiteracy. Both in the academic world and in Europe as a whole, there is a basis of a shared understanding of the importance of religious pluralism, religious freedom, ecumenical dialogue, and of the role of religions and of religious studies in order to build peace and citizenship in the global world. The European Academy of Religion (EuARe) is a research initiative launched under the high patronage of the European Parliament which offers an exchange platform to academies and scientific societies; associations; research centers and institutions; university labs, clusters, and departments; journals, publishers, media and scholars coming from Europe and the surrounding regions. The Annual Conference 2019 will be held in Bologna from Monday 4th…

CFP – Community in Crisis. Political Identification in Europe.

CFP – Community in Crisis. Political Identification in Europe.

Once regarded as the bastion of peace, unity and progress, the European Union project may be in crisis. Populist and anti-European tendencies disrupt decision-making procedures and expressions of doubts regarding both the feasibility and legitimacy of the EU disturb its roadmaps and rationales. At the same time, however, this putative crisis may provoke a pertinent re-examination and reshaping of European institutions and practices. In this context, political identification is, more than ever, a crucial area of research. This workshop is…
