Vision

Organisation

Today, decision-makers, opinion-formers, politicians and citizens in European countries increasingly need to ‘think European’, to transcend national perspectives and empathise with a European mix of national and international cultures. To meet that challenge, 10 leading European university institutions – Oxford, Leiden, Bologna, Bonn, Paris I, Geneva, Prague (Charles), Helsinki, Krakow (Jagiellonian) and Barcelona (UPF), closely supported by Madrid (Complutense and FOM), and Lisbon (Institute of Political Studies) – jointly set up an association designed to serve as an ‘international university without walls’, in which future scholars and leaders of our ‘new’ Europe have an opportunity to share common learning and confront common concerns together. The Europaeum exists to foster collaborative research and teaching, to provide opportunities for scholars, leaders, academics and graduates, through international conferences, summer schools and colloquia, and to enable leading figures from the worlds of business, politics and culture to take part in transnational and interdisciplinary dialogue with the world of scholarship. Our over-arching programmes have included inquiries on The Future of the European University; A TransAtlantic Dialogue; Culture, Humanities and New Technology; and Islam-in-Europe. The association operates flexibly, responsibly and simply – with minimal bureaucracy and complexity. Small internal grants promote the mission of the association. All Europaeum events aim to include professors from three or more partner institutions, while remaining open and ready to work alongside any other bodies or expert, encompassing the Social Sciences and the Humanities. Our core aim is to develop jointly-offered teaching programmes; to promote academic mobility; create linking scholarship and visiting professorships; and develop capacity for new ideas and policies. Above all, the Europaeum aims to add to the sum knowledge about, and for, the new Europe, to help prepare future citizens and leaders of, and for, Europe. We aim to ensure that all partner universities are fully engaged in both explaining and making Europe’s future, and to leave all those involved in our work with an enlarged ‘sense of Europe’.

A Brief History

The Europaeum was conceived in the early 1990s by Lord (George) Weidenfeld and Sir Ronald Grierson to give future young scholars and leaders the chance to meet, discuss, and develop together a real ‘sense of Europe’. The idea immediately gained traction at Oxford, winning support from the Vice Chancellor, Sir Richard Southwood, the Chancellor, Lord Jenkins, and academics such as Professor Peter Pulzer, then Gladstone Professor of Politics. The Europaeum was to be the framework within which a group of leading European universities would strive together in search of new kinds of panEuropean thinking, linking the brightest academic minds and young scholars. It was also conceived Lord (George) Weidenfeld as an autonomous and free-thinking body that would seek to add to the sum of knowledge and ideas in the ‘new’ Europe. Its development can be split into various phases: a successful launch period; a key development period; a phase of innovation; Eastward extension; and a phase of renewal.

Phase I: Launch 1992-1996 The mood of the times, including moves towards integration in Western Europe and the re-emergence of Central and Eastern Europe after the collapse of Communism, encouraged a will to promote pan-European ideas, programmes and initiatives, even styles of thinking - and universities clearly had a key role to play. The Europaeum was l aunc hed - f or m a l l y to ‘advance European studies and education’, encouraging ‘the movement of academic staff and students’ and for ‘the study of the languages, history, cultures and professions of the people of Europe’ - by Oxford, Ronald Grierson, George Weidenfeld, Peter Pulzer and Leiden and Bologna, and an Prince Hans Adam II of Liechtenstein at the launch international network was born. Oxford played the lead role, both spearheading a significant fund-raising drive across Europe, and giving the consortium the status of an official university department, supervised by an overarching committee chaired by Roy Jenkins himself. The Europaeum helped spawn two independent centres: the Institute for the Advanced Study of European and Comparative Law (IECL), originally headed by Professor Basil Markesenis, still a flourishing centre with an active relationship with the association; and the Centre for European Politics, Economics and Society (CEPES), originally headed by Professor Jack Hayward, which sadly 4

closed in 2003. Academic posts outside the IECL and CEPES were also funded, most notably a Chair in European Thought, originally held by Professor John Burrows, and a senior post in Law, held originally by Professor Guy Goodwin Gill, now at All Souls. A range of exciting scholarships for European graduates to come to Oxford were set up, and a range of linked, short-term Visiting Chairs, for example in Literature, Opera Studies, and Jewish Studies. European Studies teaching was also boosted with support for a major new MPhil programme. These all now have their own momentum, and have drifted away from core Europaeum work. The launch of collaborative activities such as international conferences, summer schools, and academic mobility – outlined later in this booklet – heralded the association’s current continuing ‘core programme’, and two key early publications from highly successful conferences heralded the association’s commitment to publishing. In this first phase Oxford’s development office helped launch the new consortium, but much depended on a group of committed individual academics.

Phase II: Consolidation 1996-2000 The network gradually expanded to include Bonn University (Rheinische FriedrichWilhelms-Universität Bonn) in 1996; then Paris I (Panthéon-Sorbonne) in 1997; and Geneva HEI - now the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies - in 1998. As activites progressed, Oxford initiated a standard fiveyear institutional review in 1998, headed by Professor David Marquand, a Professor of Politics who had worked in Brussels in Roy Jenkins’ Cabinet and had first arrived at Oxford as head of Mansfield College, with all partners invited to participate. By now the summer schools and conferences were flourishing as annual events, rotated around members, Jacques Delors, with Paolo Pombeni (Bologna) and an international Steering and David Marquand (Oxford) in Bologna Group of key officers was overseeing the growing Europaeum programme. A regular Newsletter was set up from Oxford, alongside a website, and a database aiming to link academics working in European Law, Politics and Economics. Following the review, Oxford agreed to extend its commitment, and an annual ‘subscription’ was introduced to support core consortium costs, while additional funds were raised for individual projects. Each partner was to create its own local Europaeum committee, with ideas and feedback coming to a new international committee, converted into the Europaeum Council with formal representatives from all partners. Group meetings, bringing together leading academics within the lead disciplines of Law, Economics, and Philosophy, helped momentum and promoted moves to set up small international collaborative research groupings. A special Steering Group report then presented the new Council with further 5

History

reform options which were take up: to simplify the governing structure with the Council becoming the governing body (and the Oxford-based structure ended); and a new Academic Committee to oversee academic priorities and projects, and a Management Committee for day-to-day tasks and links. It was also agreed to appoint a part-time Secretary-General, to focus on the overall growth and development, and to steer a growing association into a new phase of development, emphasizing work on young scholars and continuing links that reached beyond academe.

Phase III: Innovation 2000-2003 The Europaeum was also converted to an independent charity, run as a not-forprofit company, under UK law, while fundraising efforts were renewed again to boost The Joining of Prague in 2001 the Projects Fund, alongside the partner subscriptions used to cover core costs. In 2000, Dr Paul Flather, who had been involved in Europaeum work as Oxford’s Senior representative took up a new part-time as Secretary General. He developed a new Business Plan which laid clear objectives, updated the Mission, outlined strategies for development, and structure, with a financial plan through to 2005. Following consultations, this was approved in 2001 and a part-time assistant was hired. By the autumn, a full-time assistant was needed and the small Secretariat moved to an office in central Oxford on the Banbury Road, leased from the Oxford Voltaire Foundation. Charles University, Prague, joined in 2001, taking membership up to seven. The Europaeum was then ready to embark upon a period of innovation and play a fuller part in the changing European higher education area. At an important meeting in Paris in 2001, the Council determined that the Europaeum should Jan Sokol (Prague), Peter Tschopp (Geneva) and enlarge to a target of 10 Zdzislaw Mach (Krakow) at Berlin Conference university members, develop new ideas for policy research, and focus on joint teaching opportunities for young European scholars. The Europaeum Review, edited by the Secretary-General, was launched in 2001, as a forum for intellectual exchange, and increase the profile. A revived Europaeum Lecture series has also led to several significant publications. Three new ‘small grant’ schemes were established and still continue, though the size and scope of the grants has fallen since the global crisis. These allowed 6

Organisation

joint research to develop via Europaeum Research Project Groups, bringing networks of scholars together to launch new projects, and designed specifically to draw fresh disciplines within the consortium - including Modern History, History of Science, Classics, Philosophy and Theology. A New Initiatives Scheme was also introduced as a ‘bottom-up’ programme to widen the range of collaborative activities, encouraging appropriate bids for debates, lecture series, mobility grants, policy fora, joint teaching, library links and even technology transfer. Thus, two model European student debates were backed under this scheme, and now graduates regularly participate in debates and study days. Finally, academic mobility was boosted under the Europaeum Visiting Professorships scheme enabling leading academics to teach and research at partner institutions within the association, helping nourish future academic and teaching links. New projects set out to utilise and study the enormous opportunities provided by new technology. A major threeyear international research project examined The Future of European Universities in the ‘Knowledge Society’ during 2002-5, with a substantial grant from DaimlerChrysler Services, a leading German financial corporation. The Hartmut Ihne, David Marquand and Joost van project analysed future trends, Asten at the Council Meeting in Paris, 2001 applications of new Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in learning and research, and the new role of universities today. Meanwhile, the programme of summer schools, conferences and scholarships continued to develop. Keynote speakers at Europaeum events during this period included Tim Berners-Lee, Umberto Eco, Ralf Dahrendorf, Jacques Delors, Timothy Garton Ash, Marrack Goulding, Avishai Margalit, David Marquand, Ben Okri, Chris Patten, Romano Prodi, Mary Robinson, among many others. Most significantly, an Academic Committee working party examined ways of encouraging teaching collaboration, reviewing half a dozen recent Europaeum links, while two innovative programmes, an MA in European Politics, Culture, History and Institutions, linking Bologna, Leiden and Oxford, and a plan for modular programmes in European Business, Culture, and Institutions, initially to link Leiden and Oxford, were run as pilot projects.

Phase IV: Extension 2003-2007 The Europaeum now found itself involved in a burgeoning number of projects, still based on the principles of rotating venues for conferences, meetings and summer schools. A new Academic Business Plan, for this fourth phase of extension, was endorsed with the aims of completing and consolidating the membership target, developing joint teaching initiatives, setting up new scholarships and creating a 7

History

joint policy institute. In 2004, a major gift was received from the Lisbet Rausing Foundation, which allowed the Europaeum to upgrade its staffing, computers, and support work for its new activities programme. In 2003, Complutense University, Madrid, had joined the Europaeum. The University of Helsinki followed in 2004, and then the Jagiellonian, Krakow, in 2005, achieving the target of 10 partners, although we also reaffirmed an ‘open door’ policy too, to collaborate with appropriate other scholars and experts. Rapid progress was made on joint teaching initiatives: in 2004-5, Oxford, Paris and Leiden launched a new jointly-offered Europaeum MA in European History and Civilisation, while The Leiden-Oxford policy programme was also re-launched over 2004-6 with a series of policy-oriented symposia, with young scholar participation, workshops and events focusing on European concerns. But the programme did not prove sustainable. A successful bilateral Oxford-Geneva Link Programme was also launched within the consortium thanks to a generous benefaction, including study bursaries, lectures and workshops. Meanwhile the process of awards of the universally endorsed Europaeum Certificates, conferred upon students who complete scholarly work to high standard while engaging in Europaeum activities, was established. The new policy forum series proved popular, bringing in media, business and government representatives alongside academics, discussing a range of topics, including Reshaping Europe, Turkey and Europe, Corporate Governance, Islam in Europe, Barriers between Israel and Palestine, and The Future for Europe. To provide over-arching focus, three new major themed programmes were launched, each running with linked workshops, seminars, conferences and lectures: the Cultural Difference and Humanities and New Launch of the MA Programme in Leiden, 2005 Technology Programme in 2003, the Islam-in-Europe programme in 2004, and the US-Europe TransAtlantic Dialogue programme in 2005. The latter opened up opportunities for partnerships with US universities. After widespread consultation, a proposal to create a new Europaeum Public Policy and Governance Institute was approved in 2003-4. Extensive work began on fundraising, linking Europaeum experts and university-based policy units within a ‘virtual cluster’ of policy experts. But eventually, without the commitment from a hoped-for major backer, this project did not materialise. Following the death of Roy Jenkins in 2003, one of the founders of the Europaeum and former Chancellor of the University of Oxford, a memorial fund was set up to raise funds for European scholarships, and these have been directly linked to the Europaeum by the trustees. The first two awards were made in 2004, reflecting early fund-raising success, and from 2005 five or six awards have been 8

made to Jenkins Scholars each year, four or five in-coming to Oxford, and one or two out-going to Europaeum partners. Some 50 gave been made to date. The scheme is now firmly seen as a key element of the Europaeum programme, and in 2005 the Oxford-Geneva study bursaries programme was boosted with a further benefaction. The Europaeum also widened the scope of its workshops – for example supporting a notable cycle of events and seminars relating to the History of European Science and a major event on the Future of the West in Washington DC, and huge efforts Annual awards are made in memory of Roy Jenkins to create a European Studies institute in Turkey, ultimately unsuccessful due to unforeseen complications over politics and bureaucracy. The Europaeum also focused, strongly, on workshop and conference publications, covering a wide range of relevant themes, including Whose Europe?; The Other; E-commerce, Corporate Governance, and Europeanization, as well as continuing its series of Europaeum pamphlets, and the Europaeum Review, which continued to command respect.

Phase V: Sustainability 2008-2012 With most targets of the Phase IV ‘extension’ met, membership up to 10, consolidated research groups, developing scholarship schemes, a growing publications list, and a wider presence, this next phase promised much – and one of the goals demanded by the Academic Committee was higher visibility, though this was also recognised as a two-edged sword for a relatively small, active group. A group of three wise men drawn from Oxford, Helsinki and Leiden, was appointed to do a 15-year spot review to help chart a future direction, identifying strengths and weaknesses. What emerged was that there should be a greater focus on younger scholars; on graduate workshops, especially for doctoral and even post-doctoral students who tend to be neglected within HE systems; to extend the current grant schemes; perhaps to expand to 12 members, and to try to simplify the work focus. Ultimately though much of this would depend on funding, and already by 2008-9 the omens were poor. Within a year or two most universities were facing quite severe cuts across Europe, which in turn jeopardises their discretionary work – including programmes such as those of the Europaeum. This meant they could not be expected to increase their subscriptions – unchanged since 1998 – and indeed many are finding it harder to host events and programmes. Additionally, it became much tougher to raise funds from donors and benefactors. While all the key elements of the Europaeum annual programmes were now settled and maintained, including flagship summer schools, bolstered with hugely successful graduate research workshops on such themes as Sacred Spaces, 9


Organisation

History

the Green Economy, Leadership in Europe, the Limits to Europe, the Arab Spring, Migration, Racism and Political Rhetoric and so on, there was less funding to go around. In 2009-10 a new Board of Trustees was established, taking over fund-raising, networking and overall supervisory duties, from a more cumbersome Council, which has been converted into the Academic Council to focus on academic matters. Trustees included the two founding Sir Ronald Grierson fathers, George Weidenfeld and Ronald Grierson, as well as the third co-opted member of the former Europaeum Council, Dr Pierre Keller, who was elected as founding Chair, while Dr Andrew Graham from Oxford, was appointed a permanent chair of the Academic Council, again to aid continuity. Council membership has begun to vary due to the busy schedule of rectors. The three over-arching programmes on US-Europe Relations, Islam-in-Europe, and Culture, Humanities and Technology; continued towards as fresh efforts were made to create further joint teaching MAs. The European History MA was flourishing, but explorations in Economic Integration, Political Cultures, International Relations, Community Law, European Philosophy foundered against national and institutional regulations which were in flux, while new tuition fee structures added concern and complex variations.

Phase VI: Reconsolidation 2012-14 The Europaeum has now entered a phase of ‘re-consolidation’ as it prepares for its third decade. The Trustees are keen to produce a more secure financial basis, in a climate when it is much tougher to attract funding, and to help produce a sharper focus for future work. The consortium has had to face retrenchment in terms of publishing more on the website; reducing staffing in its office, and the level and numbers of small grants available, all the while striving harder to develop partnerships and unlock matching support wherever possible. Dr Paul Flather speaking at a Europaeumsupported International Conference in Lisbon

The association has, though, re-committed itself to maintaining its current annual programme, in addition to running at least four advanced graduate workshops a year, alongside student initiatives, summer schools, lectures and scholarships. It has re-committed to its focus on matters European, to adding value, and to bringing experts and scholars across all partners. The newest member is Pompeu-Fabra University of Barcelona, which hosts the 2013 Summer School on Rights and Citizenship, while a new tier of associate 10


Organisation

membership has now been introduced, mainly for research or teaching collaborators, and these now stand at three. A new target was also set by the Trustees in 2012 to reach 12-15full members over the coming years to extend our geographic reach, but also seek to add additional members from leading nations such as Germany, France and the UK, to add fresh impetus. All activities have grown in response to energy and commitment from participants. The Classics Colloquia series, now in its second decade, is a case in point: a pioneering event proved such a hit that a network of Classics professors blossomed, and that participants view to come back to future events to present papers, receive constructive feedback, and of course meet fellow scholars. Other informal academic networks have also been spawned over the past decade. For example via a research group such as the European Political Concepts, and the Liberalisms Groups, via a joint teaching initiative such as the European History MA, or the Students join Paul Flather for a drink in Brussels European Policy-Making Brussels after completing the policy session seminars. A new joint academic programme was launched in 2012 by the Universities of Prague, Leiden and Paris, around the theme of European Politics and Society, aiming for about 20 graduates spending their second year of study on a two-year graduate programme, at a partner institution. All this is very much in the spirit of the mission as laid down by the founding fathers and we are delighted that this course together with series of prestigious lectures and workshops, will be known as the Vaclav Havel Programme. This is just one of the highlights of our 20th anniversary year 201213, marked with special events. It was formally launched with a lunch seminar for distinguished Europaeum and Oxford figures at Rhodes House, with Lord Patten, Chris Patten, Pierre Keller, and Erhad Busek Oxford University Chancellor, Launch our 20th anniversary year in Oxford seminar 2013 along with Dr Erhard Busek, a former deputy Chancellor of Austria, both Trustees, debating future prospects for our crisis-riven Europe. In November a major event will be held in London to mark the 10th anniversary of the Jenkins Scholarship Scheme which has backed more than 50 excellent young scholars to study across Europe.

Leiden is the oldest university in the Netherlands, founded in 1575, as a gift from William of Orange to the citizens of the city after they withstood a long siege by the Spanish. It was the first in the Netherlands to practise freedom of belief and religion, as reflected in the University’s motto, Praesidium Libertatis. It was this freedom of speech that provided the environment for philosophers such as Spinoza and Descartes to develop their ideas. Leiden was a founding member and hosted the first summer school. It has regularly played a leading role in many new initiatives including executives and joint teaching programmes and academic links across law and history.

University Members PRAGUE

Charles University, Prague, was founded in 1348 by Charles IV, making it the first university north of the Alps and east of Paris. From 1882 to 1945 it was divided into Czech and German institutions. The Czech section was then revived as Charles University, but it is only since the fall of communism in 1989 that it has fully flourished again. Since then, the university has embraced international cooperation and research collaboration, and now regularly ranks in the world’s top 300 universities.

Organisation

Central Secretariat Secretariat The Europaeum office and secretariat is based in central Oxford at 99 Banbury Road, where it has been located since 2001. The network is coordinated by a Secretary-General, currently Dr Paul Flather, former head of External and International Relations at Oxford University, former Secretary-General of the Central European University, a former journalist, human rights activist, and politician, who oversees the operation and development of the association, and leads its graduate workshops and summer schools.

Paul Flather

His main administrative support comes from two regular short-term graduate interns, usually drawn from partner universities, who are encouraged to attend Oxford seminars and lectures and use University also libraries during their stay, extending the mission of the Europaeum itself. Chad Frischmann, a former staff member now studying at Berkeley, provides longer term support as a consultant, and Gareth Lloyd, a former staff member, have maintained the overall website. Babak Moussavi, a former intern, due to study at Oxford, provides editorial and design support.

Liaison Coordination Group Liaison is carried out by a network of partner liaison coordinators, supporting academics and external colleagues, and past Europaeum Alumni, who serve as vital “ambassadors� for the consortium. This group is responsible for regular work, enabling academic initiatives to be implemented and followed up. It holds audio meetings, and meets before Academic Council meetings. It works to follow-up on discussions and decisions from the Academic Council and the Board of Trustees. The committee is convened by the Secretary-General, and comprises the Europaeum officer appointed inside each partner institution. (See pages 10-21 for details of individual officers)

Project Groups

The Europaeum has stimulated many new international research collaboration. Small project grants enable groups to run a research seminar or workshop, co-ordinate a research proposal, or prepare bids to the European Union and other funding bodies as the following Research Project Groups illustrate:

Church and Family in Western Europe (2000 - 02) This project brought together moral theologians from Christian churches in West Europe (Anglican, Roman Catholic, Lutheran and Reformed) to create a common orientation for valuing the family and facing the challenges and changes affecting family life today, looking specifically at conceptual opportunities. It operated through three-day annual meetings over the course of three years. Oxford’s Divinity School Coordinator: Professor O.M.T.O’Donovan (Oxford) Linked Institutions: Oxford, Bonn and Leiden

The Kosovo Stability Pact and the Balkans (2000 -01) The Group linked researchers from all Europaeum partners, to synthesize research across a number of disciplines, aimed at exposing and analyzing the heterogeneities and commonalities existent in South East Europe. A successful workshop was held in Geneva. Funding proposals to the EU and other foundations, to focus (on themes including conflict, intolerance, sociolinguistics, law, social inter-relations, demographic trends, regional geography, transport, and political heritage) did not materialise, although individual Keeping the peace projects relating to the Pact developed separately. Coordinator: Professor Michael Kaser (Oxford) Linked Institutions: Oxford, Bologna, Leiden, Bonn, Geneva and Paris

European Economic Integration (2002 - 09) This group assessed the functioning of the Euro and the European Monetary System at both rhetorical and empirical levels since 2002, in a series of seven meetings plus a linked Summer School, contributing to the understanding of the process of financial integration in Europe and to the analysis of currency consolidation processes at the world level, as well as developing a network of linked faculty, young scholars and graduates.

Project Groups

Research

European Identity: Reason, Science, Law (2002 - 05) This project provided a multi-faceted, multidisciplinary approach to the problem of European identity, rooted in philosophical research and drawing on History, Law and Science. Discussions took place on the early history of sovereignty and its relevance for the future of the European Union, with attention paid to Machiavelli Machiavelli and the emergence of European governance. Co-ordinator: Professor Grahame Lock (Leiden/Oxford) Linked Institutions: Oxford, Bologna, Leiden and Prague

The Regulation of e-Commerce (2002 - 03) This research group examined the extent to which the law can content itself with an expectation that what holds good ‘off-line’ also applies ‘online’, through exploring the technological, political and social challenges presented by the burgeoning e-commerce sector. Workshops led to the publication of a volume of essays, E-commerce Law: National Topics and Perspectives (Kluwer Law International, 2003, 144 pages). Coordinators: Professors Stephen Weatherill (Oxford) and Henk Snijders (Leiden) Linked Institutions: Oxford and Leiden

Transmission of Science (2002 - 06) The project examined the passage and ‘transition’ of knowledge and practices between scientific communities, between teachers and pupils, and between professional scientists and laypeople in a cycle of meetings, workshops and seminars held in Paris, Bologna and Oxford. A meeting in Oxford (2002), for example, highlighted insufficient transmission models where communities are treated as passive recipients of knowledge communicated from the ‘Centre’. It concluded that analyses of centre-periphery relations had to take far more account of the active role of individuals and communities on the periphery as well as at the centre.

Project Groups

Liberalism in 20th Century Europe (2003 - 07) This project investigated the history of liberal thought in 20th-Century Europe in its national and transnational dimensions, under two broad themes: how different forms of liberalism have reacted to the persistent onslaught of anti-liberal and illiberal ideologies in the 20th Century, and how non-liberal ideologies and traditions have accommodated or taken over liberal Michael Freeden with students arguments, whether as rhetorical devices; or exercises in ideological repositioning and packaging; or as genuine assimilations of liberal ideas. Research workshops were held in Oxford, in Prague, and in Debrecen, Hungary. Many papers emerged from the group. Coordinators: Professor Michael Freeden (Oxford), Professor Paolo Pombeni (Bologna) and Dr Jan-Werner M端ller (Oxford/Princeton). Linked Institutions: Oxford, Leiden, Bologna and Prague

Social Security Law (2005 - 07) This project combined research and teaching at four partner universities studying European social security legislation. As European citizens enjoy increasing job mobility, local and EU initiatives take on increasing significance. Investigating legal handouts The coordinators created a simple panEuropean tool to disseminate research on the differences in national implementation and application processes of common European legislation. Meetings were held in Ghent (2005 and 2007) and Paris (2006). Co-ordinator: Professor Francis Kessler (Paris) Linked Institutions: Paris, Helsinki, Prague plus Ghent

Cultural Difference in Europe (2005 - ) This group was launched at a workshop in Prague in 2005, involving academics, intellectuals, artists and arts managers, and was followed up with successful workshops in Krakow and Madrid. It is planned to hold a future international conference in 2013 in Paris, with the aim of distilling a series of essays to be published in a volume. Participants from outside Europe have given New European Citizens the group additional perspectives.

Future of European Universities

The Europaeum completed a cycle of events and seminars looking at The Future of European Universities, supported by a major grant from DaimlerChrysler Services AG (as it was then), examining the opportunities, conditions and methods that enable European universities to play a leading role in the current Knowledge Revolution. The project tackled three broad questions, (i) what kinds of partnerships do universities need to make, and with whom ? (ii) What ‘new’ university elements are needed to meet the challenges of an age of globalisation and lifelong learning ? (iii) How does this ‘new’ model compare to and fit in with the existing global leaders ? Three major international expert events, involving policy makers, politicians, media, civil servants, as well as academics and young scholars, were held over two years: (see also page 51)  Borderless Education: Bridging Europe, at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, 2001  New Responsibilities for New Times, at the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne, 2002  New Partnerships: Opportunities and Risks, at the University of Bonn, 2003 Keynote participants included: Hon. Prof. Marcello Pera, President of the Italian Senate; Lord Weidenfeld, Chairman of Weidenfeld and Nicolson Publishers; Professor Jürgen Mlynek, President of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin; Dr Christina von Furstenberg, Head of Policies and International Cooperation in Social Sciences, UNESCO; Dr Dominique Moïsi, French Institute for International Relations and Editor-in-Chief, Politique Etrangère; M Jack Lang, Former Secretary of State for Education, France; Avi Primor, Former Ambassador of Israel in Germany, currently Vice President, Tel Aviv University; and Mary Robinson, Executive Director of the Ethical Globalization Initiative, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and former President of Ireland. The event produced a series of six extended recommendations, aimed at universities, employers, funding agencies and governments, but above all at society as a whole, defending the spirit and role of universities, driving forward the continuing process of adaptation and change. A full report is available on our website and as a policy report from the office, including the proceedings of all three expert conferences, keynote talks and lectures, background research papers, an international survey, and lists of George Weidenfeld & Paul Flather at the Berlin Colloquium participants. 32

Classics Colloquia

These began as an experiment in 2001 as Classicists are often relatively neglected in terms of international support. They have become an established feature of the calender, upheld by a network of researchers. Please check the website for full report and expert participants. 2001 Oxford: Travel and Tourism in Ancient Times On a chilly November weekend in 2001, graduate students from the universities of Leiden, Prague, Bologna, Bonn, Geneva and Oxford, gathered for what effectively became a three-day festival , which also incorporated tours, informal meetings and seminars, around Oxford and its historic libraries and sites, on travel and tourism in ancient times. 2002 Oxford: Recent Papyrus findings This event, including participants from seven partners, focussed on a recent papyrus find which was still unfamiliar to many students. The publication of 800 previously unknown lines of Greek poetry was bound to be an event. The book contained a decipherment and reconstruction of the unique papyrus, and stimulated a range of literature, historical and methodological questions.

Herodotus

2003 Oxford: Approaches to Herodotus and Tacitus’s Annals This theme was designed to engender a comparative approach of research methods and study traditions used in the different Classics departments, and to showcase the differences and similarities in the opening chapters of the works of two important ancient historians - one Greek, one Roman, with participants from eight partner universities.

2005 Leiden: Tears in the Ancient World This fourth Colloquium considered how tears in the ancient Greek and Roman era were regarded, depicted and explained – in literature and in visual art, by philosophers, scholars and scientists. An unusual theme, it was deemed a wonderfully productive source. Melancholia 2006 Madrid: The Orient, Greece, & Rome The fifth Colloquium was held at Complutense University, and looked at two main perspectives: Oriental influences on Greece and Rome in religion, literature and philosopy; and personal Greek and Roman attitudes to the Other or the presence of Oriental populations in Greece or Rome.

2007 Oxford: Myth, Culture, Society - in memory of Jean-Pierre Vernant Jean-Pierre Vernant (1914-2007) was a towering figure in the field of classics, both in his native France and internationally. This colloquium combined reflection on Vernant’s crucial contribution to the discipline of Classics by leading scholars in his field, with a broader exploration of themes investigated in his scholarly work, under the various headings of myth, culture and society. 40


Classics Colloquia

2008 Bologna: Metamorphosis between Science and Literature The theme for the seventh in the series was on the classical concept of Metamorphosis, both its literal and metaphorical meanings. It included both scientific subjects such as alchemy and chemistry, and literary themes such as intertextuality, disguising, pastiche, translation, and so forth, and was linked to academic events in Bologna and Ravenna. 2009 Prague: Teaching, Teachers and Students The eighth event was held in Prague, to discuss Greek education and attitudes; sophistry and philosophy; pedagogy; didacticism; Roman education and attitudes; and literary depictions of teaching and learning. Papers given by experts and young scholars, included human as well as history of didactics - the Stoics for example believed attendance should be for free! 2010 Krakow: Death and the Afterlife The ninth event focussed on the apparantly morbid theme of Death and the Afterlife, but again this allowed a broad range of areas of research: linguistics, literature, culture, religion, philosophy, archeology, art history and Graduates discussing the afterlife others, and subjects such as murder, suicide, and the role of the Gods. Additional support came from the Rector. 2011 Helsinki: Strangers and Friends The tenth in our series was hosted at Helsinki, with graduate scholars from eight member universities presenting papers, including themes such as the impact of Roman imperialism, war, city life, culture and religion and myth, not to mention the real meanings of friendship.

2012 Oxford: Leadership in the Ancient World: Odium or Wisdom? This event, hosted at Ioannou Classics Centre in Oxford, assessed how leadership qualities, and its virtues and vices, were described by poets, thinkers, and leaders themselves in ancient times, and how this affected outcomes in war and peace, and in family and public life, with graduate scholars from eight partners participating. 41

Libraries Project

The Europaeum seeks to promote academic and technological cooperation between its member’s partner libraries.

Digitisation Technological progress has gradually changed the way we search and use libraries. Librarians, researchers and students have come to rely on digitisation of journals and of books, raising questions over access, copyright and provision. The Europaeum has contributed to these debates in a variety of ways, including a highly successful international conference looking at the Dilemmas of Digitisation. The event examined how to improve communication between leading libraries to promote shared and linked digitisation projects, and avoid duplication. Participants also relished meeting other colleagues. Discussions highlighted controversy over the alleged power and influence of Google. The company’s decision to digitise major library holdings, at Oxford’s Bodleian Library for some £20 million, also divided opinions. Paris academics working in their library

Web Portal In 2000, the Europaeum investigated creating a single web portal for library access to public, digitised materials, from all of its member universities. The Secretary-General, in cooperation with senior staff at the Bodleian Library, Oxford, proposed cooperation on a joint online search engine, and work began. Subsequent web developments have made the idea largely redundant, thought scope remains for information flows in specialised holdings.

Librarian Exchanges The Europaeum has sought funds to augment its academic exchange programmes, to support specific library exchanges among professionals working in its partner universities. Digitalising the humanities

Joint Courses

Teaching

The development of collaborative, multi-centered courses fulfills a central objective of the Europaeum mission, providing future business, political, social and intellectual leaders with a panEuropean educational experience.

MA in European History and Civilisation The universities of Paris I, Oxford and Leiden launched an innovative joint MA in European History and Civilisation in 2004-05, all offering different perspectives delivered in three different modes. About 100 students will have graduated from this course by 2013. This joint MA course offers graduate students a special opportunity to deepen their knowledge of European history and institutions, their philosophical and historical backgrounds and underpinnings, and their social and economic contexts, through the lens of three different university worlds. Such knowledge plays an increasingly crucial role in practical decision-making and strategic planning, where Europe-wide and global contact and negotiation is required.

Paris 1

Oxford

The one-year programme is divided into trimesters, each with a local academic coordinator, with the first at Leiden, focusing broadly on state formation and nationalism since Leiden 1200, as well as ideas, methods and philosophy used to interpret European history and civilisation studies. The second at Paris focuses on structures of power and culture, encapsulating communication, public space and relations between history, memory and space. At Oxford, students have a special seminar programme around the idea of the emergence of Europe. In each module, candidates select from a range of topics, and are tutored to support the writing of their dissertation, while affiliated to one of the historic colleges.

MA Europaeum Cohort for 2006-2007

Participants also gain from extensive networking facilities offered by study at three leading higher-education institutions in Europe, and the programme actively stimulates contact between participants, local institutions, and intellectuals and alumni, bridging various academic communities.

This joint programme leads to a MA degree in European History, validated and awarded by Leiden University, together with a Europaeum Certificate. For more information on the modules and lead academics, and on how to apply, see www.europaeum.org. 43 43

Joint Courses

MA Programme in: Europe on Politics and Society A new two-year joint Europaeum MA Programme focussed on Politics and Society, was launched in September 2012.

Prague

The core participating institutions are Charles University, Prague, which would offer a syllabus largely made up of political theory and institutions modules; Paris 1 which would offer geographic and anthropological elements; and Leiden which would offer international relations and history components, including a focus on the EC and EU. Up to 20 graduates are expected to participate by Year Two, including at least five from each core participating institution.

The full programme, will include the degree course, a series of prestigious Europaeum Lectures, and specialist international workshops, and in time it is hoped to add special Paris bursaries to support student research and mobility. The first of these workshops took place in Oxford in May 2013, when the first of the Europaeum Lectures was given by Professor Margaret MacMillan. The second linked lecture will be given by Professor Sir Adam Roberts from Oxford, in Prague in September. The first student transfers will occur from autumn 2013, and the first EMAP Graduates are expected by August Leiden 2014. The programme is to be known as the Vaclav Havel European Programme. EMAP has been designed to allow graduates to pursue their second year of studies in Politics, International History, and International Relations, at a second Europaeum partner institution. Suitable candidates would be identified early in Year One in their home institutions and then matched with an appropriate partner institution. Participants would also be funded through the Europaeum to attend a special EMAP workshops,when first year and second year students would be able to mingle and present papers and others fruits of their work. It is hoped a select group might spend time at Oxford working on their dissertation, linked to the Europaeum. Final Degree Validation would remain with the home (main) institution, though institutions might wish to explore dual qualifications, in bilateral partnerships.

Vaclav Havel

The scheme is to be funded initially via Erasmus schemes, which would cover student mobility costs, while participating institutions and the Europaeum are supporting academic travel expenses. The current EMAP Academic Directors are Lenka Rovna (Prague, Professor of European Politics), Laure Neumayer (Paris 1, Professor of Political Science), and Joost Augusteijn (Leiden, Professor of History). 44


Joint Programmes

Teaching

The Europaeum has forged many joint teaching initiatives over the years, including the following:

Law Studies Since 1992, Oxford, Leiden and Sienna collaborated over European Law Studies, involving joint teaching and study, with dozens of student exchanges and joint programmes. Professor Marcel Brus even had a joint contract between Oxford - Leiden in the 1990s. Discussions have been attempted to revive these links.

MA in European Economic Integration Discussions were undertaken in 2003-5 to develop a new multidisciplinary Europaeum MA, on economic integration, with the aim of linking the universities of Paris I, Helsinki and Prague, to provide a variety of perspectives, with exchanges of students and faculty delivering its modules.

Business and Academe - Leiden-Oxford Programme This partnership offered programmes in the form of symposia, plans for short courses and workshops around the themes of European Business and Culture, with the aim of bridging academia and business, aimed at private and public sector managers, in Europe or elsewhere. It ran from 2002-3.

MA in European Political Cultures and Institutions This ran in 1999 and 2000 as a pilot scheme, validated by Bologna, to provide students with diverse perspectives of European politics and differing cultural and historical contexts. Attempts were made to create a more permanent programme, but failed due to widespread changes in the Bologna Process.

Theology Programmes A new Masters in Ecumenical Studies in Protestant emerged at Bonn in 2009, aiming to study theological traditions, with opportunities at other Europaeum universities planned in the future.

Teaching

Academic Networking

Disciplinary Networks In 1997, academics of Law, Politics, and Economics at Europaeum institutions, met at Oxford, Paris and Bologna, to agree strategies for international academic collaborations, academic mobility, and joint degrees. These ideas were pursued by the Academic Committee, but did not solidify into disciplining groups, due to lack of funding. However, in the 2000s, informal Europaeum academic networks emerged in the fields of Economics, History (via the MA Course), and Theology (via a series of events), Classics (via the annual Colloquia), the History of Science (via the cycle of events), to promote collaborative teaching and mobility of academics and research students.

Oxford European Studies In the 1990s, the Europaeum played the key role in the creation at Oxford of the Institute of European and Comparative Law (see page 33), and the Centre for European Politics, Economics and Society (subsequently wound down in 2003), and a number of posts, including the Oxford Chair In European Thought (see page 40) and, most recently, the Europaeum Bertelsmann Visiting Professorship in 20 th Century Jewish History and Politics (see page 41).

European Academic Research Network A proto-type access network of 300 linked academics from across the network was developed in the late 1990s - boosted by inputs from Bonn University - into the Europaeum Academic Research Network (EARN).

Europaeum Academic Register The Europaeum Academic Register is a current feature on the association’s website, listing academic colleagues with current research interests, to allow colleagues to search for potential joint research partners. Networking tools can be additioned for group Europaeum Interns update the communication. More than 200 Academic Register names are up, with more added each month. It is envisaged that a target of 400 academic researchers, supporters, and experts, from Europaeum partner and linked organizations will feature in due course.

Graduate Workshops

Teaching

The Europaeum has sponsored graduate workshops since the 1990s, but since 2008 they have become a hub of its work, especially aimed at bringing together young research scholars, who benefit strongly from meeting other likeminded scholars, to present and discuss common issues, and listen to experts. They include expert presentations, debates, working groups, and graduate presentations. For more details and expert speakers see the website. 2008 Prague: European Migration in the 21st Century: a Challenge to Nation-States ? This workshop aimed at creating a better understanding of the international migration processes, its causes, current developments and long term implications, through a multi-disciplinary dialogue. The wider aims include producing new academic outcomes and improving participants’ research and methodological approaches. 2009 Bonn: Thinking about Progress A three-day event to examine the theoretical and practical perspectives of ‘progress,’ its history, and contemporary and future implications. How should we define progress and trace its trails in historical societal, artistic and intellectual development? What are the conditions, causes and effects of progress for societies and individuals? What significant aspects of progress in European culture helped shape the 21st century? Were they incidents or necessary results? Does Europe face future progression – or regression? 2009 Krakow: Europeanisation and ECE region Workshop This three day Graduate Workshop analysed the processes of Europeanisation from different perspectives, including theoretical approaches and various case studies. The participation of Graduates debating Europeanisation graduates from different Europaeum universities allowed for the exchange of experiences and encounters of Europeanisation across the EU, with a special emphasis on the new ECE member states. 2009 Madrid: Democracy without Elections ? Elections without Democracy ? A one-day workshop to examine relations between ‘good’ elections and sound democratic governance; or ‘bad’ elections and the realities of democratic deficits. What can or should Europe do to foster fairer, freer, and more effective, elections? The event also compared and contrasted various case studies, depending on experts involved, including Armenia, Cuba, African experiences, Lebanon and India. 47

2010 Paris: Risks from Climate Change: Lessons in global diplomacy This three-day programme investigated the European and international approaches to climate change politics, focusing on its political economy, geography and diplomacy. In the aftermath of the failure of the 2009 Copenhagen climate change conference (COP15) and in the run up to Cancun (COP16), participants reviewed the key Graduates discussing Climate issues in reaching a binding and global Change in Paris treaty on climate change. 2010 Oxford: Migration, Ethnicity, the Making of Modern Europe A graduate workshop to explore contemporary European themes, based on the movements of peoples, conflicts, and cultural moving and forms of governance. Examples discussed includes the Greek-Turkish crisis of the 1920s; Spain in the 17th century; the movement of Jesus in the 20th century and Europe between the wars. 2010 Leiden: Migration, Political Parties & Public Rhetoric in Contemporary Europe This three-day program investigated relations between Migration and Political Parties in Europe today: the effects of migration and migratory laws and the impact these have on politics and political parties and how political parties respond to migration and migrants. Thus, migration affects the discourse, activities and policy positioning of political parties, as well as patterns of competition and co-operation between political parties. Simultaneously, government policy, political discourse and public opinion, affect processes and rates of migration, as well as relations between migrants and Migrants arriving by ship in the 1950s host communities. 2011 Oxford: Europeanization and the Roots of Modern Europe Today we speak about Europeanization as a process of ‘change’. But what does this process actually mean and how does it work? This three-day workshop aimed at analysing the process of E u r o p e a n i z a t i o n f r o m d i ff e r e n t perspectives, including theoretical approaches and various case studies. The participation of graduates from different Europaeum universities allowed free exchange of experiences and encounters across Europe. 48

The Europaeum ran this workshop to take stock of developments in the region, one year after the start of the revolutions, at a time of still great uncertainty and full scale repression in Syria, and to look ahead, to the likely democratic outcomes, with the focus especially on Tunisia and Egypt. It linked to an expert’s seminar at Paris I Sorbonne, with graduate papers and debates following. 2012 Prague: Challenges and Opportunities for Europe in building a Global Green Economy This three-day graduate workshop critically investigated how concepts around a ‘green economy’ can become powerful leverages for sustainable development and poverty eradication at both the European and global scales. Participants met in the run-up to the UN Conference in Rio, to review achievements and key challenges ahead in terms of sustainable development, and to define the roles Europe should play to foster a global green economy, focusing on its political economy, geography and diplomacy. 2012 Oxford: Rousseau and Republicanism Traditions in Europe This three-day workshop revisited some of the key ideas and strands that emanate from Rousseau’s thinking. Rousseau’s work gave rise to a wealth of new ideas – progressive, romantic, participative, democratic, Jacobin, even child-centered education and fictional writing. June 28th marked 300 years since his birth, a timely moment to reappraise his many and varied influences. 2012 Bologna: America: Still a European Power ? This event explored the role and impact of American ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ power in the 20th Century, and reviewed the commitment of the US towards Europe today, after the Balkan Crisis, 9/11, the Iraq War, and Obama‘s socalled Pacific tilt, with US and European perspectives and lively graduate papers. 49

Europaeum Certificates

Europaeum Certificates are awarded to students who satisfactorily complete a recognised academic activity under the auspices of the Europaeum. They specifically recognise a pan-European experience, and an additional incentive to Europaeum collaboration. This is in addition to other qualifications and degrees from their home university. The award is endorsed by the Europaeum Academic Council, which represents all member universities.

Qualifications for the award include:  Doctoral students who spend at least three months working with an academic supervisor from another Europaeum partner institution;  Graduate students participating in a Europaeum Summer School or advanced research workshop and completing a presentation or an original essay (c 3500 words of sufficient standard) Andreas Krebs is awarded one of the first linked to the themes of the Europaeum certificates by Professor Elke Brüggen in Bonn Summer Schools;  Graduate students taking part in a Europaeum joint study or teaching programme (spending at least 150 hours in academic study), such as those who pass on the joint Europaeum MA Programme in European History. Each Europaeum Certificate specifies the particular activity that the student has completed, allowing different types of academic activity to be recognised. The Europaeum’s Academic Council is the arbiter for the Certificate, usually issued in English, and signed by a representative of the network. Each year since 2000, on average 20 Europaeum Certificates have been awarded each year, for the joint MA or to those who successfully gave papers at one of the various events and joint programmes, such as the annual summer schools, regular graduate workshops. and Classics Colloquia.

Trans-Atlantic Dialogue

The Europaeum launched a major initiative to promote a TransAtlantic Dialogue between leading European and US academics, intellectuals and policy-makers. This took the form of lectures, research workshops, policy studies and debates. The programme built on past work in including lectures by Professor Tiziano Bonazzi (The Labyrinth of Euro-American Relations, at Bologna, 2002) and Professor Christian Hacke (Challenges for German Foreign Policy at the Beginning of the 20th Century, at Leiden, 2003). The aims were to add to the sum of knowledge, and create greater understanding, and collaboration, across two regions of global influence. The Europaeum has worked in partnership with the Rothermere American Institute at Oxford, opened in May 2001, hosting Professors Tiziano Bonazzi and David Ellwood Transatlantic gifts: ideas of liberty (Bologna) at Oxford, and a panel debate on US-Europe Relations in March 2006. The US-Europe Programme culminated in an international conference, organised with the Institute of Strategic Dialogue, at the Woodrow Wilson Centre, in Washington, DC, on The Future of The West, with keynote speakers including Henry Kissinger, Chris Patten, and others. An accompanying report, looking at how Transatlanticism would fare if America and Europe were forced ‘ to go it alone’, was published called American and Europe: Moving Towards 2020. Most recently, the group reviewed current trends: in US relations with Europe in the wake of Obama, and how actively involved the US still is in Europe. Linked Institutions: Geneva, Oxford, Lisbon, Bologna, Krakow and Leiden. Advisory Coordinators: Professor Wim van den Doel (Leiden) and Professor David Ellwood (Bologna/Johns Hopkins)

Programmes

Islam-in-Europe The Islam-in-Europe Programme was launched in September 2004 at a Europaeum Summer School, Europe and Islam: Building Bridges, held at Leiden University.

The programme focused on a variety of questions, including how Islamic communities have settled and integrated in different European countries; the meaning and impact of Political Islam in Europe; understanding and interpreting Islamaphobia in Europe; tracing past and current perspectives of The Other with regard to Muslims in Europe; the impact of terrorism, the Middle East crisis, and Balkans crisis on European foreign policies; and, not least, European relations with Turkey. After confirmation of Turkey’s candidate status as a member of the EU, interest in Turkey, especially academic and intellectual links, grew enormously and following a successful symposium on Turkey in 2004, the Europaeum worked hard to promote an initiative in support of an independent Institute for European Studies to be attached to a leading Turkish university. A Europaeum Lecture was delivered by P r o f e s s o r Ta r i q Ramadan, the eminent I s l a m i c s c h o l a r, a t Oxford, linked to a Europaeum conference on Cultural Difference in Europe, in Warsaw, 2006.

Programmes

Culture, Humanities & Technology

The programme was launched to study how the Humanities (and Social Sciences) were being changed in the light of the ICT revolution, and what role Humanities still hold, and how European Culture was being reformed. The Mission:  To review conflicts between the value of the Arts and Humanities – explaining a complex, globalised world – and devaluation of Humanities inside universities;  To assess how new technologies change the very methods of scholarship with new processes, new time-saving methods and new databases;  To show how the Humanities demonstrate success, share data, promote interdisciplinary work, and bridge the “two cultures” divide;  To help promote international collaboration to enable new ideas and avenues for successful outcomes;  To help identify and examine new ways to promote funding of the arts; Key events: In 2003, at Oxford, a conference was held on The Future for European Humanities (linking Oxford, Paris and Prague). Professor Tariq Ramadan was the keynote speaker. In 2005, a Prague workshop looked at New Information Technologies and the Future of the Humanities. Keynote speakers included: Professor Annie Cot (Paris) and Professor Luda Klusakova (Prague). Petrarch - father of the Humanities? In 2006, a Krakow workshop looked at sociology of cultural difference, with particular reference to faith and migration. In 2008, in Oxford, librarians met to discuss the digitisation of archives and library holdings. In 2009, a Madrid workshop looked at cultural difference caused by federal, regional and philosophical differences. The keynote speaker was Professor David Marquand. In 2013, a Paris international conference will examine cultural division and difference across Europe fueled by the current global and Eurozone crisis, on top of two decades of labour mobility, migration and the recent rise of far-right extremist politics and Islamophobia. 64
