Announcements: European Integration & the Global Political Economy Research Network

Call for Members:
Launched in 2011, the CES European Integration & the Global Political Economy network has members from more than 10 countries. The network has a dual focus: It analyzes the extent to which the EU impacts on-going reform dynamics in a global post-crisis context, focusing on the ideational and strategic influence of the EU on key actors, and how they impact countries with differing institutional legacies and contexts. It also focuses on EU governance and decision-making in a broad range of policy areas, and how these relate to issues of popular legitimacy and contestation in the EU and beyond.
The network has its own book series with Agenda Publishers and offers an annual prize with the journal Comparative European Politics for early stage researchers. Several panels are organized within the remit of the network at each CES conference, and the CES organizes a meeting for the network at each annual conference. The network has its own research portal through which collaborative endeavors can be constructed and shared. The network provides a great opportunity for developing innovative research in the area of European Integration & the Global Political Economy. If you are interested in joining the network please contact Aidan Regan, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., for more details.

Call for Papers:
The 2018 paper prize submission period is open until January 31, 2019. Details can be found here.

Annual Paper Prize for Early Career Scholars
The CES research network on European integration and the Global Political Economy has initiated an annual paper prize competition, in collaboration with the journal Comparative European Politics, in 2012. This is an opportunity specifically for scholars in the early stages of their career to support publication of excellent work, while also seeking to expand synergies between the CES annual conference, our network's doctoral workshop and our membership. The winning paper of each preceeding year is announced during the network luncheon at the main conference and, following potential revisions, will be published in Comparative European Politics. The winner in 2012 was Mathis Heinrich (Lancaster University), Lucia Pradella in 2013 (University of Venice), Visnja Vukov in 2014 (EUI),  Michael Schwan (University of Cologne) in 2016 and Muireann O'Dwyer (University of Warwick) in 2017. Congratulations!

Comparative Political Economy Book Series
The European Integration and the Global Political Economy Network is affiliated with Agenda Publisher’s Comparative Political Economy Series. This series examines contemporary issues in comparative political economy, beginning with the political economy of Europe, including, but not limited to, the European Union and its member states. Pluralistic in approach, contributions to this series offer original, theoretically informed analyses of the interaction between politics and economics, and explore the implications for policy at the regional, national and supranational level. Its titles include:
We welcome submissions to the book series from network members.

Doctoral Workshops:
The network organizes regular doctoral workshops with the aim of raising the profile of early career scholarly work within the network, offering those researchers opportunities of exchange on themes within the remit of the network, and providing them with high quality feedback of more senior peers within the network. So far, we have run successful pre-conference workshops in Amsterdam (2013) and Paris (2015) and Glasgow (2017). We look forward to welcoming you to one of our future events!
