Understanding EU legitimacy: cross-disciplinary approaches to studies of the European Union

September 8th and 9th 2021

Frankfurt (Oder) Germany, Słubice Poland

The aim of this workshop is to explore interdisciplinary approaches to the legitimation deficit in EU governance. It will create a space for discussion that brings together quantitative, model-based political science and sociological research with research applying ethnographic methods. The innovative dialogue and cross-disciplinary exchange between various approaches to the study of EU governance, specifically EU institutions and policies, will shed more light on the problem of the legitimation of EU institutions and policies.

Organised by Dr. Pawel Lewicki and Prof. Alexandra Schwell (Alpen-Adria Universität Klagenfurt)
