CALL FOR PAPERS

“COMPARING REGIONALISMS: THE EU MODEL AS REFERENCE POINT
FOR INTEGRATING REGIONS”
16 November 2018
Ateneo de Manila University, PHILIPPINES

The European Studies Program of the Ateneo de Manila University is pleased to announce a call for papers for the
2nd International Conference on European Studies – “Comparing Regionalisms: The EU Model as Reference Point for Integrating Regions.”

The post-World War II period has seen the development of regional blocs as individual nation-states sought strategies to cope with the complexities of globalization. These conglomerations of countries have evolved following different trajectories, and adapting to their unique historical circumstances. The majority of the studies on regionalism have tended to focus on the European Union, which is the oldest and most institutionally complex of the existing regional blocs. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in comparative regionalism, looking at how processes, policies, and state dynamics have shaped the integration among neighboring states.

This multidisciplinary conference dovetails with this trend. It seeks to encourage contributions that compare how regional blocs address political, economic, social, cultural, and legal issues.

This is the 2nd conference that focuses on prioritized issues in the field of European Studies, conducted bi-annually by Southeast Asian universities.

Our Hosts

European Studies Program

Launched in 1998, the Program is one of the long-running outcomes of a European Commission higher education project to promote awareness of the European Union in the Philippines and to develop a group of Filipino experts on EU affairs.

In teaching the European experience, the Program takes the interdisciplinary route. To this day, the Program continues to pool faculty with a wide range of expertise on Europe. It draws educators from various academic departments of the university, whose expertise includes economics, international law, languages, political science, business, history and socio-anthropology. These faculty members draw from their extensive professional experience in international business management and diplomacy. The Program has also welcomed visiting lecturers from various universities and professional affiliations in Europe. Besides teaching and conducting research projects, Ateneo European Studies faculty frequently engage in speaking, training, and outreach outside the university.

The Program offers an undergraduate AB European Studies degree (with specialization in Business and Economics; and International Relations). Its graduate programs - Master of Arts in European Studies - Comparative Regional Relations of Asia and Europe (Thesis Track); and Master in European Studies (Non-Thesis Track) have its first intake of graduate students in 2017.

In the near future, the Program intends to offer a PhD Research degree in European Studies as well as to establish an Ateneo Centre for Research on Europe (ACRE).

Ateneo de Manila University

To understand the soul of the Ateneo de Manila University -- what shaped it and where it came from, where it is going and where it can take you -- it is essential to understand its motto, Lux in Domino, or "Light in the Lord."

From the letter of St. Paul to the Ephesians (5:8), these words capture the spirit of a way of life which the Ateneo holds up to her sons and daughters as their best contribution to the work by which God transforms the world. To be "light in the Lord" in all fullness demands moving insistently and deliberately towards God as the center of a person's life, identifying the issues that such a centering poses, and then moving out to the world to find ever new ways of constructing the edifice, cultivating the garden, painting the masterpiece, that God is unfolding in one's life.

It is a call to BE that light of the Lord in the world.
