In the last two decades, Europeanization has become a very broad and overarching social science concept and theoretical framework for analyzing various social, political, economic, and historic transformations within and outside of the European Union. The Literature on the Europeanization of Southeast Europe (SEE) has grown rapidly,
mainly focusing on the relationships between the EU and the Balkan nation-states and/or specific issues (e.g., regional policy, environmental sector, public administration, justice and home affairs, party politics, statehood issues). Yet, the
debate on the Europeanization of SEE is very complex, and it has been still overridden by the enduring conservatism of nationalism, related to Balkan political conflicts and wars.
The workshop will be held at the University of Graz on November 24 and 25, 2022. We plan to have a small live event, but there is a possibility of switching toan online or hybrid form in the case of the worsening of the COVID-19 pandemic situation. We kindly invite all interested participants to submit an abstract of theirpresentation by October 10, 2022 to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
