Exploring experiences - Good governance exchange on the frontiers of Europe

Duration: 
November, 2010 to June, 2011
Funding: 
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.
