2. Call for papers
The workshop welcomes original contributions aimed at answering the following questions:
- What are the characteristics, the possible merits and limitations of the EAPs? What could the policy alternatives be?
- How the EAPs have affected the EU itself and its relationship with its member-states?
- What domestic factors affect the member-states adjustment process?
Ideally, the workshop invites participants to integrate to their analysis both theoretical elements and empirical findings on the impact of the EPAs. Theworkshop will embrace diverse approaches and variables, such as institutions, political/policy actors and policy ideas.
