CompaRe conference and call for papers on lean integration
This conference explores the potential of regional collaboration for meeting some of the key challenges facing our world today, and to do so in a smarter and leaner way than ‘just’ copying the EU model. It does so in the context of CompaRe, the Leiden Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on comparative regional integration, and in collaboration with UNU-CRIS, the United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies.
Substantively, the conference focuses on three core challenges: climate change, migration and economic collaboration in a digital, renationalizing reality. In addition, it focuses on two key underlying academic challenges: the methodology of comparative legal integration and the challenges raised by overlap between regional initiatives and between regional and even larger, global initiatives.
