Submissions are welcome from all disciplines on a variety of topics including, but not limited to, EU politics, governance, economics, history, security studies and institutions, as well as policies covering enlargement, immigration, development, trade, transatlantic relations, and foreign policy.
Submission Deadline for Abstracts: December 16, 2011
Abstracts should be 250-300 words in length. Preference will be given to abstracts that clearly specify the paper’s research design, including theoretical approach and methods.

Submissions will be accepted on-line between November 16 and December 16, 2011:
