Presentation by Émilien Fargues, PhD, Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence

Through the analysis of the condition of “professional integration” for naturalisation, the article investigates whether economic performance requirements for the granting of French citizenship stand in contradiction with the communitarian dimension of the civic turn or whether they support each other.

Informationsveranstaltung
Description

Wie verändern sich Mobilitätsgewohnheiten? Entstehen neue Bedürfnisse? Welche Bedeutung kommt dabei den Angeboten der Shared Mobility zu? Diese Fragen zu beantworten, gestaltet sich zunehmend schwierig, denn das Mobilitätsverhalten wird komplexer. Welche Verkehrsmittel auf einem Weg oder an einem Tag genutzt werden und wie sich die Nutzungsmuster über die Zeit verändern, kann mit einfachen Befragungen kaum noch erfasst werden.

Presentation by Jo Shaw, Professor at Edinburgh Law School, University of Edinburgh, and holder of the Salvesen Chair of European Institutions

This lecture addresses the relationship between constitutional citizenship and the rise of populism. Is populism leading to the erosion of modern citizenship as an ideal of equality? The claim is that many populist politicians make extensive use of constitutional amendment processes to reinforce their sense of identity with the people.

Lecture by Federico M. Rossi
National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET) at the National University of San Martín (UNSAM) in Buenos Aires
Description
 

Latin America has seen the rise of social movements and conflicts in the streets in the last year. The continent is in turmoil. In his talk, Federico Rossi will draw on extensive research about the unemployed workers movement (the piqueteros) in Argentina as well as on related mobilizations across Latin America to shed light on these emerging dynamics. The piquetero movement has been the largest movement of unemployed people in the world and transformed Argentine politics to the extent of becoming part of the governing coalition for more than a decade.

Buchpräsentation und Diskussion mit Cem Özdemir, Naika Foroutan und Ruud Koopmans
Description


In großen Teilen der Welt ist Demokratie inzwischen zur Norm geworden. Genau umgekehrt sieht es in der islamischen Welt aus: 53 Prozent der Länder sind autoritär regiert, nur vier Prozent demokratisch. Immer mehr Muslime fliehen vor Diktatur und Unfreiheit, Terror und Krieg, Armut und Arbeitslosigkeit.

Keynote Lecture by Janine R. Wedel
Description

The lecture will take stock of the transformation of policy elites and intermediary organizations in contemporary politics. Myriad new spaces of policy, governance, and influencing have opened up over the past several decades, and ever-more intermediary entities and players have arisen to fill them. These intermediaries, increasingly novel entities and players that defy classification, have reorganized relations with states in a remade ecosystem characterized by more porous and blurred boundaries.

Presentation by Dr. Jules Lepoutre, Université Côte d’Azur

What does it mean to be a European citizen? From the last couple of years, the legal doctrine of the ‘genuine link’ is becoming central to evaluate the legitimacy of the Member States policies regarding nationality acquisition and loss. This paper aims to investigate the content of the genuine link doctrine, from ancient international law to contemporary EU law.

Presentation by Prof. Liav Orgad

In his presentation, Liav Orgad claims that the Chinese Social Credit System represents a new form of citizenship governance, termed as “cybernetic citizenship”. He provides normative standards to distinguish the Chinese system from Western forms of cybernetic citizenship, and shows the manner in which civic virtue is instrumentalized in China, both in content (“what” it is) and in form (“how” to cultivate it).

Lecture by Thomas Kalinowski, Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Korea
Description

Since the global financial crisis of 2008/09, international cooperation has failed to curb volatile financial markets. Changes in the global rules of finance discussed in the G20 during the last decade remain limited, and it is uncertain whether they are suitable to help mitigate and manage future crises to come. Thomas Kalinowski argues that this failure is not the result of the ‘nature’ of the international system, the clash of national egoisms, or a lack of leadership.
