"A bad day for Europe"?

Juncker’s nomination was not a sudden, not an unexpected and not even a distinct event. Neither does it spell an end to the European Council’s dominance in constitutional politics or make EU reform less likely.

The Eighth European Parliament: More Politicisation

Despite “shocks” & “earthquakes” that took place at the national level, the European Parliament remains mainly pro-EU. Why did the rise of Eurosceptics not make more of an impact, and what do the results mean for the 8th European Parliament?

Workshop: Lost worlds of East European Jewry: images and narratives

16 January 2014

Associated with the joint lecture Lost worlds of East European Jewry: images and narratives, we have a very limited number of places still available for a PhD workshop with students and staff from UCL and the Sorbonne on 23 January 2014.

PhD students with research broadly in the area of historiography, autobiography and fictional representation of the past; contemporary memory politics and memory tourism; and competing memory and identity narratives; particularly in Central and Eastern Europe, are invited to apply. For more information and to register your interest, please email us (u.staiger@ucl.ac.uk) before the end of Monday, 20 Jan, we will get back to you promptly.
