Speaker: Professor Stefano Bartolini
The EU crisis, and the new economic governance instruments invented to solve it, further complicates the problem of the source of EU legitimacy. This lecture will explore these problematic connections.
Stefano Bartolini is director of the Robert Schumann Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute and used to teach at the University of Bologna. He is an author of the book Restructuring Europe which focuses on the theory of European integration. He argues a model which partially redraws the boundaries of the nation-state and thereby creates new exit options for societal and political actors. Bartolini will be discussing the influence of the imbalance that the political restructuring of Europe and the sustainability of the democratic welfare state and European integration.
