Exploring experiences - Good governance exchange on the frontiers of Europe

November, 2010 to June, 2011
Jean Monnet Programme

This project seeks to extract useful knowledge from past and present European experiences of promoting good governance, and process the wealth of accumulated know-how about the subject. Such a review has been lacking so far despite the realities that - inspired by enlargement and applied in neighbourhood policies - European external action policies prioritize the promotion of good governance more than perhaps those of any other political entity on the globe. The project will culminate in a four-panel international conference (29 April 2011) where established experts comment and critique the fieldwork-based, policy-oriented analyses of early-career researchers. This approach aims to contribute to the sharing of knowledge and experiences, and provides an opportunity for interdisciplinary and inter-generational synergies to develop.
