Topics

Title : European cultural and science diplomacy: exploiting the potential of culture and science in the EU’s external relations INT-11-2015
Description : At a time when other major global players, such as China or South Korea, are stepping up their public diplomacy efforts around cultural issues, including science and education, cultural diplomacy becomes also an emerging interest in the European Union. A number of recent initiatives have been launched by the European Commission and the European Parliament to reinforce the link between EU foreign and cultural policies. The Commission's "European Agenda for Culture in a Globalising World" has led to the establishment of a Member States' expert group on culture and external relations (taking China as a test case), which has delivered a report with recommendations. Following its 2011 resolution on “Cultural dimensions of EU external actions”, the European Parliament has launched a Preparatory Action on culture in external relations, implemented by the Commission.
Targeted countries : China, Korea (Republic of), United States of America
Title : Europe's contribution to a value-based global order and its contestants INT-03-2015
Description : The notion of and access to global justice has been at the centre of many debates about the objectives and legitimacy of global governance and international law. For some, global justice implies solidarity with all humankind on the basis of inter-culturally shared values. Others think that such a broad conception of justice is untenable, and that high levels of justice may, if at all, only be attained at the level of the nation-state. While the debate is open on what a just global order can be and which values it could or should comprise, one can identify certain conditions that global political action would need to fulfil to move closer to the ideal type of such an order. Parting from a European view of global justice and human rights, European policy-makers regularly portray the European Union as an ethical global player promoting values like democracy and human rights in its external relations.

Title : The European Union and integration challenges in the Balkans INT-10-2015
Description : The Balkans represent an interesting neighbouring region for the EU from geographic as well as from political and historical perspectives. Since the launch of the Stabilisation and Association Process (SAP) in 2000, one country from this region (Slovenia) has joined the Union as early as 2004, another one (Croatia) became Member State in July 2013. All the other Balkan countries have the prospect of becoming Member States and are bilaterally engaged with the EU through Stabilisation and Association Agreements (SAA) (i.e. Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo and Serbia).
Targeted countries : INCO WESTERN BALKAN : Kosovo (UN resolution)
Title : The European Union and the Eastern Partnership INT-08-2015
Description : The European Union's Eastern and North-Eastern neighbours include six post-Soviet countries of strategic importance with whom the EU has sought to reinforce relationships since the 1990s. Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine and the three countries of the South Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia) form together part of the EU's Eastern Partnership. The relations that the Union maintains with these countries are structured around bilateral and multilateral strategies aimed at establishing durable political, economic and cultural ties. This includes intensified research and innovation collaboration through the newly established Panel on Research and Innovation.
Targeted countries : INCO EECA : Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova (Republic of), Ukraine
Title : The European Union's contribution to global development: in search of greater policy coherence INT-04-2015
Description : Research should adopt a comprehensive perspective on EU policies and regulations and their impact on developing countries, analysing the intended and unintended consequences of both development and of non-development policies' impact on developing countries. It should, on the one hand, look into EU and EU member state development policy in various regions of the world, investigating where appropriate, to what extent and why these have proven to be effective or not. On the other hand, EU and EU member state non-development policies with a bearing for development in third countries should be closely scrutinized. Finally, the influence and policies of more recent development actors should be analysed in order to situate the European position into a global context.
Targeted countries : Brazil, Mexico

Title : The European Union, Turkey and its wider neighbourhood: challenges and opportunities INT-09-2015
Description : Since the outset of the European integration process in the aftermath of World War II, Turkey has been an important economic and political partner for the EU and a strategic military ally within NATO, forming a bridge into the Middle East and the Caucasus. Turkey is also a member of the G-20 group and ranks among the top 20 countries in the world regarding the size of the country, its population and the nominal GDP. The process of Turkey's integration with the EU has started in 1963 when it has become an associate member following the Ankara Agreement.

Title : Towards a new geopolitical order in the South and East Mediterranean region INT-07-2015
Description : For several years, the political landscape of the South and East Mediterranean countries (SEMCs) has been quickly reshaped, affecting the geopolitical order of the whole SEMCs and Middle East area. Regimes that were established since many decades in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya were overthrown while other political destabilisations and conflicts are on-going in Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. Strong tensions exist between the establishment and the current processes of political transformation. The SEMCs and Middle East region is often considered as one entity while each country and region has its own reality: political formations, powerful bodies – sometimes interconnected with neighbours or other regional powers in the area – influence the political situation on the internal and external scene. The political transformations that the region is facing, from war, conflict, revolution or transition, have also major impacts on the population of the region.
