Network of Excellence : Wider Europe, deeper integration - Constructing EuropeEU-CONSENT

Team :

  • Jacques LE CACHEUX (responsable of project)

Project :

In answer to the Sixth Framework Programme, Priority 7, Citizens And Governance In A Knowledge Based Society, EU-Consent was a network of excellence for joint research and teaching that analysed the construction of a new Europe over the period between 2005 and 2008. It addressed questions of the mutual reinforcing effects of deepening and widening by developing and working with three sets of expectations for analysing the past and developing an innovative framework for the future integration beyond Western Europe. Within such a conceptual framework 48 teams tested lessons from the past in view of their academic and political validity for discussing visions and scenarios for the future. The major leitmotiv is that the Union is in the full process of reinventing itself – a development which is however difficult to grasp and explain. The University of Cologne - Jean Monnet Chair for Political Science was the coordinator of this network.
