Lecture:
Frank Schimmelfennig, Professor of European Politics, ETH Zurich; Director of the Center for Comparative and International Studies, Zurich

Abstract:
Since the mid-1980s, differentiation has become a core feature of European integration. The member states have typically and successfully used differentiated integration to overcome failure of unanimous agreement and ratification in negotiations on accession and new integration. Recently, however, the focus has shifted to negotiations on differentiated disintegration in reaction to withdrawal referendums (such as the Brexit referendum) and proposals for differentiated reform of existing integrated policy areas (the Eurozone, Schengen, and defense policy). Frank Schimmelfennig argues that differentiated integration is less suitable and more difficult under these new circumstances.

Lecture: Prof. Adrienne Héritier, professor emeritus, European University Institute in Florence

Abstract:
The lecture will focus on the strategies which the EP applied across time in order to extend its institutional power. This increased institutional power allows the EP to wield more influence on policy making. The presentation will focus on the EP´s increase of power in legislation, the nomination and investiture of the Commission, the budgetary process as well as the substantive area of economic governance in the context of the Euro crisis. To put the rise of the EP´s influence in relation to the power wielded by the other institutional actors, in particular member states and the European Council, it discusses arguments of the so-called ‘New intergovernmentalism’.

Comments:
Thomas Jaeger (Professor of European Law, University of Vienna)
Sophie Lecheler (Professor of Communication Science with special focus on Political Communication, University of Vienna)
Josef Melchior (Director of Studies, Institute for Political Science, University of Vienna)

Moderator:
Gerda Falkner (Head, Institute and Platform for European Integration Research, University of Vienna)
