Europe and New Global Challenges - EuroChallenge

EuroChallenge is a new major research project that addresses the place of Europe in the context of a rapidly and radically changing global order. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the project examines the intersection of a changing global configuration on the one hand and still unresolved tensions of European integration on the other across the three particular social spaces: the market, the politico-legal space and the socio-cultural space.

These three overlapping and inter-related European forms of order represent the key forms of post-war supranational integration. They each represent solutions to the dilemma of how to organise Europe and on what principles in an ever more globalising world. As the world supposedly moves into a crisis-driven and uncertain phase beyond "globalisation", so each of the three domains faces key challenges to the delicate European compromises of the past half century: between respectively market and social cohesion, supranational governance/law and democracy, and cosmopolitan diversity and the value of national communitarian purpose.

iCourts staff will contribute with research on the legal-political space and particularly the role of Europe in the judicialization of the global order. iCourts will also hire two postdocs funded by the 2016 grant to help undertake this new dimension of the research agenda.
