Call for Papers: L'Europe en formation
The quarterly journal L’Europe en formation, founded in 1960, focuses on topics related to European Integration, International and European Politics, and Federalism. Articles are written either in English or in French.
Spring 2010: For our Spring 2010 issue, we now accept proposals for articles on “Alexander Marc’s Thought Today”. Alexander Marc (1904-2000) is often considered one of the “founding fathers” of the European movement after WWII. In the 1930s, he became well-known as one of the shapers of personalist socio-political philosophy. In the post-war period, he was the originator of "integral federalism" and accompanied the European integration process as a critical observer. Ten years after his death, L’Europe en formation would like to investigate the current significance of his thought in contemporary political philosophy, as well as the relevance of the models he developed for European Integration.
Summer 2010: For our Summer 2010 issue, we now accept proposals for articles on “Federalism, Democracy and Europe”. The topics would cover
Proposals for both issues should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, including: the title of the proposed article and an abstract (500 words), as well as a CV of the author. Visit the website of L'Europe en formation here.

Call for Papers - The European Union and the United States: Processes, Policies, and Projects
11 and 12, 2010 | Grenoble, France
The goal of this multidisciplinary colloquium is to examine the connections between the European Union and the United States beyond emotions. Pro- and anti-American elements tend to oversimplify their positions, reducing the debate to rivaling caricatures. This conference aims instead to take a dispassionate, methodical and measured approach.
French and English will be the working languages of the conference. To register, please send the following information to Yann Echinard (email@example.com) or Albane Geslin (firstname.lastname@example.org): Last Name, First Name, Title, Duties, Institution, Title of Paper, Session Chosen, Abstract (300 words).
For more information, please view the call for papers (DOC).
Deadline: July 15, 2009

Please send proposals to Michel Gueldry, Monterey Institute of International Studies, and Stefania Baroncelli, Free University of Bolzano/Bozen. View previous editions of the EUSA Review here: www.eustudies.org/publications_review.php.
Call for Manuscripts: Cambridge Series on Business and Public Policy
Cambridge University Press has recently launched a new book series, Business and Public Policy, which seeks to play a pioneering role in shaping the emerging field of business and public policy. This series focuses on two central questions. First, how does public policy influence business strategy, operations, organization, and governance, and with what consequences for both business and society? Second, how do businesses themselves influence policy institutions, policy processes, and other policy actors and with what outcomes?
In recent years the notion of public policy has become more expansive. The policy environments which businesses negotiate might be supplied by governmental as well as nongovernmental actors. Across issue areas, nongovernmental actors have established institutions that shape market opportunities as well as introduce a new kind of (private) regulatory context that businesses are obliged to consider. Whether they cohere with or undermine government-supplied institutional context, businesses need to be responsive to both types of policy environments.
We welcome manuscripts whose scope might be national, comparative, or international. These submissions might focus on a given issue area or compare across issue areas. Given the multi-disciplinary nature of the field, we are particularly interested in books which appeal to multiple audiences located in social science departments, business schools, public policy schools, and law schools.
For inquiries, please contact General Editor Aseem Prakash, email@example.com
MSc in European Public Policy
University College London
The program provides an in-depth and systematic understanding of the European Union's institutions, political processes and policies. It covers questions such as executive, legislative and judicial politics in Europe; introduces the supranational decision-making process, including legislation and interest intermediation; and addresses key issues of contemporary European governance, such as European foreign policy, regulation, citizenship and the Europeanisation of national politics and policies. As part of the program, the department also offers a study-trip to Brussels in order to give students the opportunity to gain first-hand insight into the workings of the EU institutions.
