2 ND ANNUAL CONFERENCE 7-8 FEBRUARY 2019 P2

WELCOME

Dear Colleagues;

Dear Fellows and Alumni,

This year’s annual gathering marks the 3rd year of GEM STONES and the 10th year of GEM. Both of these doctoral research and training consortia sponsored by European Commission framework programs – one within the MSCA-ITN and the other within the Erasmus+ program – are built upon global research networks with more than a decade-and-a-half of history. The underlying initial partnerships and joint research efforts hark back over 16 years to the GARNET Network of Excellence (sponsored by the Commission’s 6th Framework program) which were later deepened through the GR:EEN (FP7) and ENLIGTHEN (H2020) research in action projects.

Thanks to the innovation provided for by these leading research consortia, as well as the partners’ decade-long shared experience and trust, the GEM and GEM STONES PhD programs have emerged as leading research and doctoral education programs on both the EU and global stages. The global reach of the programs is reflected in their associated communities, be it: the near to 40 nationalities represented among its sponsored early stage researchers; the 8 degree-awarding institutions spread over three continents; or the more than 30 members of its Alumni community active on four continents. External evaluators – both academic and managerial – have repeatedly commended the resulting record, mentioning among other:

A dozen universities from across the globe collaborating for over a decade-and-a- half;

64

sponsored Double-Doctoral Theses, with 36 already successfully defended and

24

still ongoing;

Over 50 academics mobilized to join Co-Supervision Arrangements;

Over 160 mobility Actions facilitated over the course of the past decade;

Participation of 6 prestigious think tanks and non-academic entities, allowing for the integration of new internship practices within doctoral training programs;

12

published volumes in the Routledge-GEM book series;

Innovative platform aimed at interaction with NGOs and policy-makers’ community (AGORA).

It is above all thanks to the continued mobilization and investment of more than 50 academics, the local staff from more than 10 institutions and an ever-growing Alumni community that we have continued to enjoy an extremely rich training and research environment marked by its intersectoral, international and interdisciplinary openness. This fruitful and opportunity-rich environment is further enhanced through the welcome bottom-up proposals submitted by the students and Alumni.

P3 2 ND ANNUAL CONFERENCE 7-8 FEBRUARY 2019

In the short-term, the GEM program is expected to wrap up with the submission of

its final 9 PhD manuscripts, while the GEM-STONES agenda still foresees a series of milestones and deliverables. As GEM-STONES enters the final third of its life-span,

it will focus more on securing the promised outputs and further disseminating the

consortium’s achievements. Key in this regard will be both the scheduled publication of 4 edited volumes and a textbook; as well as the submission of 15 doctoral manuscripts. In the medium to long-term the prospects for the underlying research agendas and associated research communities remain open. In this respect, a key objective of this year’s annual gathering is to jointly look forward at how to further develop and renew these communities. You are invited to join us in Brussels at the Institut d’études Européennes of the Université libre de Bruxelles (IEE-ULB) at what we hope will be a series of thought-provoking meetings so as to jointly evaluate the progresses made so far, and the possible ways forward in the future.

Besides the institutional timing dictating these discussions, they also happen at a crucial moment when a necessary updating of our research agenda is called for as it has increasingly come to face epoch-defining global changes. In this regard, among the many challenges to the community’s comparative and theoretical research agendas, one must undoubtedly consider: the current great transformations of the global liberal

order; the global shifts in power; the dramatic changes in the foreign and trade policies of the sole remaining superpower; the re-emerging tendencies towards power politics and fragmentation; the emergence of authoritarian alternatives; or the troubles facing

a myriad of regional entities, including nationalist challenges to European integration

or growing tensions within ASEAN, AU and MERCOSUR. As in the past, the community will broach these topics through: its pluralistic understanding of scientific debate; continued commitment to theoretical innovation; and an open commitment to peaceful and multilateral forms of cooperation.

WELCOME

THANK YOU

It is a delight to welcome you all to this 9th Annual GEM/GEM-STONES Conference.

This first of these conference was held in 2011 at LUISS- Guido Carli in Rome as the EMJD-GEM PhD School welcomed its first generation of Fellows, and now almost a decade later our ever-growing community gathers once more in Brussels at the Institut d’études européennes of the Université libre de Bruxelles (IEE- ULB).

If our first gathering involved 10 doctoral fellows, 10 institutional representatives, and

a two-headed project management office; the 2019 conference brings together 21 doctoral fellows, 19 alumni, 4 keynote speakers, a 6-headed International Advisory

Board, 15 institutional representatives and over 20 external participants to a series of 5 round-tables. Although the annual event has mushroomed from two-dozen participants

to over a hundred participants; the project management office for its part has remained

the same size. It is therefore with understandable pride that the project management office welcomes all the participants of this year’s event – some for the first time, and others for the umpteenth one. As was the case for the previous iterations, the project management office hopes it will prove a fruitful two-day experience that will speak to the scientific, training and social aspects of the community.

The organisers remain committed to see this annual conference evolve and adapt in light of the shifting needs of the community. In this respect, the project management office would like to highlight the following innovations at this year’s event:

• The event was integrated into the host university’s wider thematic year dedicated to “A Europe of Knowledge” – see http://europe-connaissance.ulb.be/fr - as the GEM/ GEM-STONES community is a textbook example of the opportunities and challenges associated with the development of a European Areas of Research and Higher Education (ERA & EHEA);

• A dedicated Skills building program was developed with an eye on counselling recent (or soon to be) PhD graduates as they move beyond their doctoral work;

Both organizational and financial means were purposefully invested in gathering and promoting the GEM/GEM-STONES alumni community. This has allowed for near to 20 Alumni to join us this year from across the globe;

• In line with past efforts, again the conference is seized upon as an opportunity for inter-sectoral dialogue with a series of thematic roundtables (a.k.a ‘Salons’) set-up to allow for open discussions under ‘Chatham House Rules’ so different generations of researchers, different professional profiles and different disciplinary outlooks can jointly discuss challenges of shared concern.

«PROFESSIONAL TRAINING»

The training includes two main components: a hands-on focus on skills related to CV writing and job interviews, and a reflection on professionals skills, personal skills development and the discovery of skills. The session focuses on communicating oneself, and on how to navigate what is valued and sought for in terms of professional skills. As such, the session represents an opportunity to discuss in-demand job skills of today and tomorrow.

The session will be interactive and includes work in pairs or smaller groups. A small homework has been given to the participants two weeks prior to the session.

given to the participants two weeks prior to the session. Dr. Hanna Ojanen is Adjunct Professor

Dr. Hanna Ojanen is Adjunct Professor (docent) of international relations at the University of Helsinki and an expert on European foreign, security and defence policy with a long work experience from both research institutes and universities. She has organised professional skills trainings since 2011 and enjoys tackling challenges of research communication and connecting research with policy-making.

«FUNDING AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT»

The 2-hour session will start with a panel focussing on project proposal preparation and management, different programs and platforms for European/national resources including

a Q&A with the participants.

A second panel will focus on the personal and professional experiences of some of the

attending GEM PhD School Alumni, followed again by a Q&A with the audience.

«ALUMNI MIXER»

A 3-hour peer-to-peer learning session will be organised, involving both the alumni and the

currently enrolled fellows geared towards exchanging best-practices on how to navigate the global job-market after graduation.

From a «speed-dating» presentation to a «world-café» style discussion, this session will allow alumni and current PhD candidates to network, share experiences and talk about their challenges with peers and potential mentors. An open mind, a touch of self-mockery and a head full of questions will be highly appreciated.

The host Maria Isabel Soldevila (ULB-IEE) is a journalist and communicator with 20+ years of experience in getting people to talk about themselves and an ear for great stories.

RATIONALE

17:45 Institute for European Studies of the ULB RATIONALE In line with the longstanding European tradition

In line with the longstanding European tradition of “Salons”, GEM-STONES hopes to organise a set of gatherings shepherded by an inspiring host and profiting from a series of expert contributions. These smaller scale gatherings will be held to simultaneously (1) refine the understanding, (2) increase the knowledge and (3) deepen the interconnections of the participants through conversation and debate.

Additionally, these salons will have a bridging function aimed at linking MSCA-funded early stage researchers (ESRs) working on European Affairs to two key corresponding communities: EU policy practitioners, on the one hand; and later-stage researchers having graduated from pre-existing EU-funded programs who are also working on EU-affairs, on the other. As such these Salons are part of GEM-STONES’ inter-sectoral and inter-generational networking and outreach efforts.

Lastly, these salons are also a professionalisation opportunity for the GEM-STONES ESRs to refine their policy advocacy/consultancy skills. The ESRs have produced policy papers and have been encouraged throughout their personal research to consider the real-world/policy implications of their work. As such, the Salons offer a platform for them to present their research-informed insights and test their conclusions through interactions with more senior experts and practitioners. Ultimately, the hope is to foster new research-driven ideas and insights on a set of key societal challenges facing the European Union today.

FORMAT

societal challenges facing the European Union today. FORMAT Each Salon will last for one hour-and-a-half, with

Each Salon will last for one hour-and-a-half, with discussions proceeding under the Chatham House Rule and involving around two-dozen participants all of whom are either experts on, or practitioners of EU affairs. Participating experts in EU affairs will include both Academics – i.e. senior scholars from across the world, Early Stage Researchers currently enrolled in EU-funded programs, and mid-career researchers graduated from prior EU-funded programs; and Practitioners – i.e. civil servants from the main EU bodies, elected representatives from parliaments, members of civil society organisations, private sector lobbies and consultants, as well as experts from Brussels- based Think Tanks. The list of participants will be set by the organisers with an eye on the agreed upon themes of each Salon. The discussions in each Salon will coalesce the practical experience, knowledge and insights of the participants to arrive at a manifesto including a variety of roads to policies that might offer possible answers to the raised societal issues.

P9 2 ND ANNUAL CONFERENCE 7-8 FEBRUARY 2019

The agenda – i.e. discussion topics – of each thematic Salon will be set out in advance as the organisers seeks to identify up-to 10 societal issues facing the EU and its policy-makers today. To highlight the connection with GEM-STONES’ overarching research agenda, the various issues have been grouped into 5 transversal threats challenging the multilateral liberal order and the EU’s role therein:

Salon 1 - Globalisation, Europe and Multilateralism: Threats to Democracy

How to respond to declining trust and rising populism? How to respond to normative contestation within and beyond the EU?

Salon 2 - Globalisation, Europe and Multilateralism: Threats to Justice

How to defend the most vulnerable and the principles of non-discrimination? How to defend multilateral norms and the Rule of Law?

Salon 3- Globalisation, Europe and Multilateralism: Threats to Security

How to implement holistic security in the EU’s broader neighbourhood? How to deepen the European area of Security, Freedom, and Justice?

Salon 4 - Globalisation, Europe and Multilateralism: Threats to Sustainable Growth

What road ahead for EU Governance regarding financial & welfare solidarity? What road ahead for EU Governance regarding intergenerational solidarity?

Salon 5 - Globalisation, Europe and Multilateralism: Threats to the Trade System

Which response to the risks weighing on the WTO? Which response to the hurdles threatening the Common Commercial Policy?

Discussions themselves are to flow naturally but with the help of a host who will help frame and jump- start the discussions by presenting and contextualising the two cross-cutting questions of a given sessions. The first half of a given gathering (about 45min) is to involve the group as a whole (about

20 members) as it explores possible linkages between the societal challenges raised and the scope

of any possible EU response. Subsequently, the second half of the gathering (45min) participants are to break into two smaller groups to have more intense discussions on the specificities relating to the

distinct societal questions closest to their field of expertise.

Following the event, the insights gleaned through the discussions will be compiled as a set of user- friendly vignettes jointly drafted by the GEM-STONES fellows and a few of the program alumni. All
