For each, indicate themes to be addressed, the number and nature of expected attendees, any resulting information products, means of dissemination. Please also specify how these activities will further the program policy objectives and produce the related outcomes set out in section II of the Call for Proposals, and provide measurable criteria for evaluating their implementation.

    CONFERENCES I (these conference events will vary by year)
    The Center will organize three “major” conferences (10-15 invited participants) every academic year (typically taking place in November, March, and April) that will seek to involve a large number of researchers, policy makers, and stake holders from both the US and Europe.
    YEAR 1:
    November DATE, 2011Conference 1:
    Alternatives to Austerity

    The conference will bring together specialists from the US, Europeans working in the US, and selected specialists from Europe, especially from those countries hardest hit by the economic crisis. The purpose of the conference will be to compare conditions and analyses, and to discuss alternatives to a prolonged economic decline, high unemployment, and sustained assaults on public institutions and the welfare state.

    February DATE 2012 Conference 2:
    Conference on the Euro Crisis
    In 2010, the EU experienced its first sovereign debt crisis as investors grew fearful that several of the Eurozone members might be unable to repay their government debts. Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Spain, and Belgium saw their government bonds downgraded and had to watch helplessly as the bond yield spreads between their own government bonds and those of more solvent member states such as Germany rose to new heights. The crisis soon became most acute in Greece, and on May 2, 2010, the International Monetary Fund and the remaining Eurozone countries agreed to a bailout in the form of a €110 billion loan. A week later, the member states of the EU and the International Monetary Fund went even further and pledged to make available as much as €750 billion to secure the solvency of the less stable Eurozone countries. While these measures have so far succeeded in averting sovereign defaults, the threat that the Euro Crisis poses is far from over.
    The Euro Crisis has profound implications for law and policy in the EU and raises numerous questions of fundamental importance. Should the Treaty on the EU be amended to provide a clearer basis for financial rescue measures, and, if so, how should such amendments be designed? Should the Eurozone states move toward closer economic and fiscal integration? Should the EU at least be able to interfere in the economic and fiscal policy of individual member states if such interference becomes necessary to preserve the stability of the Euro? Should the EU consider the introduction of insolvency proceedings for member states? Does the Euro Crisis call for a redefinition of the role of the European Central Bank?
    To discuss these and other questions, we plan to organize a conference on the Euro Crisis at the UT School of Law. The Texas Journal of International Law has agreed in advance to publish the main contributions.

    April DATE, 2012Conference 3:
    Elite Policymaking and Financing in the EU and US: Accountability or Paralysis?
    A central question in EU countries and the US today is the extent to which policymaking latitudes of government, state administrative, business, trade union, and other key elite groups are being constricted by globalization, climate change, resource costs, weak economic growth, high unemployment, ethnic communal tensions, and many other difficulties. Enthusiasts of unfettered democracy applaud and seek more constricted elite latitudes, believing this increases accountability to citizens’ needs and wishes. Others see in constricted latitudes a creeping paralysis of policymaking that will produce protracted economic stagnation and heightened social conflict. These competing views are abiding themes in theories and research about political elites in EU countries and the US: selectivity in recruitment, forms of social distinctiveness; rates of circulation; structures of policy networks; magnitudes of accord and discord on major policy questions; in short, the policymaking capacities and qualities of political elites in these countries. Relevant theories are, however, diverse, and research findings tend to be piecemeal. It is therefore proposed to convene a symposium at the UT in early April 2012 to aggregate and assess what we know and do not know about the capacities and qualities of elite policymaking. A dozen senior scholars who have long studied political elites in EU countries and the US, augmented by several prominent media observers, will be assembled. The symposium will be organized by the Center for European Studies and Department of Government at the UT in collaboration with the International Political Science Association’s Research Committee on Political Elites, whose current chair, Prof. John Higley, is a UT faculty member. Prof. Higley will later edit a volume containing symposium papers and discussions. Strong efforts to attract coverage of the symposium by National Public Radio, Deutsche Welle, The Economist, The New York Times, Financial Times, etc. will be made.

    • Heinrich Best, Professor of Sociology and Director of the Collaborative Research Center, University of Jena, and an expert on European parliamentary elites

    • Maurizio Cotta, Professor of Political Science, University of Siena, and Director of the 17-country EU-funded project on elite and citizen views of European integration

    • Jean-Pascal Daloz, Professor & Research Director, C.N.R.S., France, and an authority on the social distinctiveness of historical and contemporary European elites

    • Patrick Dumont, Professor of Political Science, Univ. of Luxembourg, and a specialist on the recruitment and circulation of cabinet ministers in EU countries
