European Union Studies Association 16th Biannual Conference
Coming Together or Moving Apart?
9-11 May 2019, Denver, Colorado, USA
Organizers: European Union Studies Association
The panel takes place at 13:45 -15:15 on Saturday 11 May.
The papers in this panel draw on the conceptual debate on global political justice in order to examine and assess the EU’s global role. In the context of intensified globalisation and economic integration, there is increasing recognition that the settlement of justice claims cannot be confined to domestic political settings. Yet, the concept of justice is contested. To the extent that the EU contributes to enhance global justice, what conception of justice does it rely upon and to what extent is this conception echoed by state and non-state actors outside of Europe? The papers rely on a shared conceptual framework in which a distinction is made between a conception of justice as non-domination, as impartiality and as mutual recognition. The papers draw on this threefold conception to examine the EU’s external policies in the areas of security, conflict resolution, climate, migration and trade and development.
