Integration and Diplomacy – conference at the Firenze EUI…

Quickly, again, two small things.

One is the following workshop:


Organized by European Integration History Working Group – EUI-HEC
Tuesday 19th November 2013, European University Institute
Seminar Room 3 – Badia Fiesolana (09:00 – 13:00)

‘The Diplomat’ has become a contested figure in many disciplines. Political
scientists have analysed the processes of Europeanization of national diplomacies;
the shift from government to governance; and the shift from diplomats being
boundary maintainers to being boundary spanners. Social scientists have for long
grappled with the relationship between institutional changes, the norms and practices
of diplomacy, and the composition of diplomatic corps. Social anthropologists such
as Iver B. Neumann, for example, have studied the practices of diplomacy. The
overarching question being: What’s the name of this tribe?

Short term, but for anybody happening to be in Firenze, this should be interesting. Program here.
