On 16th July 2021, the call for paper for the IDEAS Conference on (Dis)Integration from an (In)equality Perspective was launched.
The conference, which will be co-organised by the Institut d'études européennes of the ULB, the Institute for European Studies of the VUB, and the Politics and International Studies Department at the University of Warwick, will take place in Brussels from May 11 to 13, 2022.
"Inequality has many facets which test a wide range of institutions and policies associated with the EU. Increasingly, it has emerged as one of the central and transversal concerns shared across EU institutions and national public opinions.
Academic and political debates addressing (in)equality and (dis)integration have gained momentum following both the 2008 financial crisis, and the current COVID-19 pandemic. Increasingly, broader debates surrounding equality, non-discrimination and solidarity are homing in on the distinctive role of the European level. The IDEAS conference will be a forum to present and discuss cutting-edge research investigating inequality in relationship with European politics and policies. It will bring together scholars interested in how the EU has been a driver of inequality or, on the contrary, how it has attempted to tackle them in a number of policy domains."
