University American College Skopje is proud to initiate

the 12th annual international academic conference on European integration

Skopje, Thursday 25 May 2017


This inter- and multi-disciplinary one-day conference seeks to re-examine the current situation in Europe, and to discuss scenarios of its future. In particular, it aims to juxtapose and rethink the concepts of migration, economic growth and solidarity in Europe. Following the Brexit vote amidst an ongoing migration crisis, many pose the question about the future of the European Union. While it is difficult to predict how the greatest political project in history will alter under existential pressures both from within and from without, it becomes necessary to consider the general trends, to foresee the consequences, and to offer elucidations which go beyond incited fears, continuing prejudice, or short-term interests.

Major issues to be addressed include, but are not limited to:

– Dealing with migrants and refugees at and within EU borders

– Discussions around European solidarity, migration, and security

– Economic predictions for the EU and its member states

– EU enlargement and the Western Balkans

– The impact of Brexit on the EU and the UK

– European security and responses to terrorism

– The rise of conservatism in Europe

– Innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship in Europe

– Youth programs and transnational education exchange

Case studies comparing at least three countries (including but not limited to those of South East Europe) as well as research-based policy recommendations are encouraged.
