Lecture: Europeanization and the Domestic Policies of Welfare State Reform
Wednesday May 22, 2013
Sponsored by the European Union Center of Excellence
For more information, email email@example.com
Allen Auditorium, 181L Allen Library
Paolo R. Graziano is Associate Professor at Bocconi University, has been Visiting Fellow at the Center for European Studies, SciencesPo Paris (2004-2011), and currently is Research Fellow at the Human Development, Capability and Poverty International Research Centre at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Pavia, Italy.
How does European integration influence national social policies? What is the domestic use of EU social policies? This talk will focus on the relationship between European integration, domestic policy change and the usage of European resources at the national level. Recent studies have shown that the EU is an important variable to understand recent welfare state changes, but it remains relatively unclear on how precisely Europe does matter. The results of the research presented during the talk confirm that Europe matters, but in a very differentiated way both with respect to the usages of European resources and the intensity of welfare state change.return to top
