Conference: bEUcitizen 2015 Mid-Term Conference: Being a Citizen in Europe. Zagreb, 29-30 June 2015‏


bEUcitizen 2015 Mid-Term Conference: Being a Citizen in Europe – Call for Papers The bEUcitizen Coordination Team and the Center for the Study of Ethnicity, Citizenship and Migration (CEDIM), Faculty of Political Science – Zagreb University are pleased to announce the bEUcitizen 2015 Mid-Term Conference on the theme: “Being a citizen in Europe” to be hosted in Zagreb (Croatia), 29- 30 June. The 2015 bEUcitizen Annual Conference will include a two-day international and interdisciplinary conference (29-30 June) open to both participants in the bEUcitizen research project and external scholars. The Conference is divided into four thematic streams, addressing different aspects of European citizenship, its historical development, the rights that European citizens have within the present-day European Union and the multiple legal, practical and other barriers they still face in exercising these rights, depending on their capacity and their status. We are particularly looking for disciplinary analyses and critical assessments from scholarly disciplines such as history, sociology, political science, law, philosophy and economics, as well as for interdisciplinary papers, combining two or more of the aforementioned disciplines. More specifically, we welcome contributions that fall within one or more of the following four themes: 1: EU Citizenship – towards new forms of bounded or unbounded citizenship? 2: EU Citizenship rights in law and practice – comparative perspectives 3: The Europe Union’s political citizens: rights, practices, challenges and alternative models of participation 4: Linguistic Diversity as Hindrance to the realization of European citizenship rights? Abstracts, which should be no longer than 500 words, need to be submitted by February 28th, 2015, and must be sent via the online form available from January on the Conference website. The 10 best submissions based on abstracts of PhD students will receive a reimbursement of maximum 500€ for travel costs and hotel fees. PhD students who want to apply for this bursary need to indicate this in the form when submitting their abstract. PhD students that will receive reimbursements will be informed about this latest June 1, 2015.
