International conference

26 – 28 May, 2022, Oradea, Romania

International Conference Poster

Over the last years, the European Union has been confrunted with major crises, challenges and transformations. The coronavirus pandemic, the social and economic crises, the green and digital transitions, migration or instability in its neighbourhood have a profound impact on the Member States, their citizens, but also on the decision-making process at all levels of government.

The objective of the Conference is to approach topics related to the crises, challenges and transformations, from different policy areas (public health, economy, social affairs, environment, education and training, youth, research and innovation, digitalisation, regional policy, rural development, transport, energy, borders and security, migration, EU citizenship, etc.), that the EU and the Member States are currently facing, with a particular focus on the interaction among the European, national and sub-national actors as regards the process of European public policies formulation and the influence of the EU decision-making process.
The Conference aims to bring together academics and researchers from various fields of expertise and countries, but also professionals, public authorities, civil society representatives, representatives of business enterprises and of mass-media, in an endeavour to gather experiences, examples of both challenges and best practices, in order to identify solutions for strengthening the EU’s multilevel governance and the European public policies formulation, with reference both to the content of the European policies and to the channels, instruments and mechanisms that different EU actors, from different sectors and levels of government, have at their disposal.
