International Summer School 2019

Geschäftsstelle der ARL: 

Europe and its Regions

ARL International Summer School 2019

28 to 30 October 2019 in Hannover (Germany)

Bildquelle: Adobe Stock/ StephanieRegions play an important role in the architecture of the European Union. The EU's multilevel governance system provides for close cooperation of regions among themselves and with actors on other levels, both national and international. This leads to questions such as: How does multilevel governance work in practice? What is the role of the Committee of the Regions in the institutional structure of the EU? And why is cohesion policy significant for Lower Saxony?

The aim of the ARL International Summer School 2019 is to critically examine “Europe of the regions” as a leitmotif for European integration. Participants will discuss conceptual, methodological, and empirical contributions that use innovative approaches to exploring the role of regions in Europe’s multilevel governance system.
