Europaeum Review (latest)

Europaeum Review
The next Europaeum Review on The Medival (sic) Roots of Europe has been published this month, examining in part the relationship of the EU and Empire (see editorial). Articles include
Disunion: the true hallmark of the history of Europe?, by Professor Jean-Philippe Genet, Professor of Medieval History, University of Paris I-Sorbonne; Is Europe turning into a neo-medieval Empire? by Professor Jan Zielonka, Professor of European Politics and Ralf Dahrendorf Fellow at the European Studies Centre, Oxford; What is the story for our European Project? Professor Timothy Garton Ash, Honorary Chair of the European Studies Centre, St Antony's College, Oxford; and Can we save the European adventure? by Dr Curt Gasteyger, Director, Association for the Promotion and Study of International Security, and Honorary Professor, HEI, Geneva.

comment: the above is more a sort of newsflash. for those unfamiliar with the Europaeum, here a brief extract from their "Vision" page:

As the pace of European integration accelerates, decision-makers, opinion-formers, politicians and citizens in European countries increasingly need to 'think European', to transcend national perspectives and empathise with a European mix of national and international cultures.
To meet that challenge, 10 leading European university institutions have jointly set up an association designed to serve as an 'international university without walls', in which future scholars and leaders of our new Europe will have an opportunity to share common learning and confront common concerns together, from a formative age and throughout their active lives.
The members:
University of Oxford
Universiteit Leiden
Universitá di Bologna
Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn
Institut Universitaire de Hautes Etudes Internationales, Geneva
Université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne
Univerzita Karlova V Praze
Universidad Complutense, Madrid
Helsingin Yliopisto, Helsinki
Jagiellonian University, Krakow
