Inter-institutional balance: towards a new institutional architecture?

On 5th June 2018 EUCOPAS' Final Conference brought together young and experienced researchers as well as students and the general public who have not yet been in regular contact with EU-related topics. The discussion around the question of inter-institutional balance gave a meaningful end to the EUCOPAS project.

The conference started with a Keynote Speech held by Jim Cloos (General Secretariat of the Council of the EU) and gave the participants insights into EU bureaucracy. The first panel discussion was about the evolution of the European Council and its impact on the institutional architecture. It was followed by a panel dealing with the impact on institutional architecture but with focus on the European Parliament. The third panel had to discuss the setting of teaching the institutional architecture and the arising question of a transnational curriculum development.

EUCOPAS is a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence consisting of the Jean Monnet Chair, Prof. Wessels, at the University of Cologne and the Jean Monnet Chair in European Union Law and Political Science at Sciences Po, Paris.
