Call For Papers

The Graduate Institute of European Studies at Wenzao Ursuline University calls for contributions for the 5th Wenzao European Forum. The forum provides a platform for the discussing most recent developments in European Studies.

This year´s forum aims to identify in what areas European actors seek to walk new paths, breaking with the past and opening new chapters to promote resilience when facing serious challenges (e.g., Ukraine war, Covid-19 global pandemic, climate crisis, energy crisis, supply chain disruptions, Taiwan Crisis).
Previously walked paths have either failed to bring the wished results or had negative side-effects. Since continuing old paths is not feasible anymore it is time for Europe to open new chapters (“Zeitenwende”) for embracing a more resilient future.

Europe has to acknowledge that new approaches are needed to ensure a future based on democratic values, and a safe, healthy and sustainable environment for its people driven by an innovative and prosperous economy. Given that crises can set free forces for changes to undertake previously unthinkable steps.

Resilience – understood as the ability of a system to absorb and recover from external shocks by adapting and transforming to address long-term changes and uncertainties – can be achieved in several ways and includes many issue areas. From national security, energy security, climate action, public health, education, social welfare, economic restructuring to digitalization efforts.

The forum welcomes contributions from various disciplines (political sciences, economy, sociology, educational and cultural studies, environmental studies, etc.) to reveal emerging patterns on how European actors (states, organizations, regions, etc.) have responded to challenges and are seeking to lay the foundations adjusting their policies, institutional structures or strategies.
