SEUCHA14SG - Jean Monnet Module - The EU’s Responses to the Challenges of its Neighbourhood

Durata:
da 01.09.2014 a 31.08.2017

European Commission
Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA)

Coordinator Serena Giusti

The module analyses the different crises the EU has to confront at its borders and the strategies on non-strategies concocted to respond to them. These crises are very different as for the causes, the progress and possible outcomes. As a result, the EU while shaping an overall vision on the restructuring of the pan-European space needs to consider the diversity of the countries and the regions part of that space. The module aims at providing students with instruments for a critical assessing of the EU successes/failures in its external projection. In particular the module is considering the European Neighborhood Policy and its two ramifications: the Union for the Mediterranean and the Eastern Partnership. Peculiarities of regions and cross regions differences will be widely debated. Students are expected to compare and contrast the variety of ways that ENP countries have chosen to shape their political institutions and processes with particular attention to democratization and Europeanization.

Besides traditional courses, seminars and other activities will be organized. Students and researchers are invited to publish or topics related to the module. We welcome and appreciate any other proposals.

"Theorizing the European Neighbourhood Policy"
Serena Giusti (Dirpolis) will present a paper “Russia’s Realist interpretation of the ENP” at the conference (based on a call for papers) "Theorizing the European Neighbourhood Policy" which will be held on September 16-18, 2015, at the Department of EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies at the College of Europe, Bruges. The conference will discuss the European Neighbourhood Policy through the prism of EU external relations theory. Although the ENP has arguably become an important pillar of EU external action over the past decade, and despite the growing body of literature, theoretical approaches attempting to explain and/or predict this policy’s evolution and effects have so far not attracted much scholarly attention. The conference aims to contribute to the further development of EU external relations theory by explaining the origins, development and effectiveness of the ENP from various perspectives, as well as the role played by Russia and other global actors active in the EU’s neighbourhood.

"Donne e cambiamento nel Mediterraneo: quale ruolo per la UE?"
Conferenza organizzata nell'ambito delle iniziative promosse per il Festival d'Europa 2015

6 maggio 2015, Firenze (Palagio di Parte Guelfa, Sala Brunnelleschi), ore 10.00-13.00

Il contributo muove da un'ampia esperienza nel campo degli studi di genere sviluppata all’interno della Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna a cui si aggiunge più recentemente un filone di ricerca che guarda al ruolo delle donne come fattore di cambiamento in diversi Paesi del Mediterraneo, in particolare dopo i sommovimenti che si sono dipanati nell’area dalla fine del 2010. Sono state proprio giovani ricercatrici dell'Istituto Dirpolis ad approfondire questi nuovi temi utilizzando strumenti innovativi di indagine e conducendo ricerche sul campo.

L’attenzione al potenziale femminile nell’area del Mediterraneo si innesta anche su un consolidato corpus di studi europei che si è indirizzato sempre più verso l’analisi dell’azione esterna della Ue rispetto al suo vicinato. L'Istituto Dirpolis, anche grazie all’attribuzione di un modulo Jean Monnet, ha organizzato un ciclo di seminari che toccano alcuni delle questioni qui proposte e hanno coinvolto esperti anche al di fuori della Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna. In questo contributo l'intenzione è quella di coniugare le diverse esperienze maturate nella Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna per offrire un’analisi di come la promozione dei diritti delle donne nei diversi ambiti della società possa costituire un motore di cambiamento e di modernizzazione dei Paesi della sponda Sud del Mediterraneo. In questa prospettiva, saranno valutate le politiche europee di vicinato mettendo in rilievo le strategie finora utilizzate con una prospettiva di genere e i limiti e le potenzialità di suddette strategie.
