Session 2: New Model of State Emerging from the Economic Crisis

Discussion topics:

  • To what extent are modern states influenced by the economic crisis? Critical issues: structure, functionality, effectiveness and democratic representation.
  • The severity of the current crisis in some countries has led to a political crisis in which the legitimacy of political institutions has been called into question. How is reconstruction going to take place?
  • How is the EU transforming and adapting to the new circumstances and responding to the economic challenges?
  • Are we facing a new phase of the Weberian state or neo-liberal governmentality?
