Vienna, 17 October 2013 – A vision for post-crisis Europe: Towards what kind of political union?
participates at the THESEUS Conference in Vienna on 17 and 18 October
2013 at the Austrian Institute for International Affairs. He contributes
with a paper on “Building an inter-parliamentary bridge for more
economic integration” and will also be “first commentator” to the panel
“Roadmap for a closer Union?”.
Since 2007, “THESEUS – establishing a European society” aims at
fostering an open and constructive dialogue between academia and
politics, but also between generations, about the future challenges of
Europe. Thereby it enhances the mutual understanding of societies in
Europe. The purpose is to promote transnational interdisciplinary
networks. In doing so, it enables especially junior researchers to
create a sustainable network both of young leaders and of recognised
experts from academia and politics. THESEUS is a joint project of
Sciences Po Paris, the Brussels-based think tank Trans European Policy
Studies Association (TEPSA), the Jean Monnet Chair of the University of
Cologne and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation in Cologne.
