    26 January 2017  OSE Lunchtime Session 
  
Europeanised or European? Representation by civil society organisations in EU policy-making

Keynote speaker: Dr.Sandra Kröger, Senior Lecturer, University of Exeter

Panel discussion: Gabriele Bischoff, President of the Workers' Group, European Economic and Social Committee
Sian Jones, Policy Coordinator, European Anti-Poverty Network
Roman Haken, Member of the European Economic and Social Committee (Group III)
 
The
monograph Europeanised or European? Representation by civil society organisations in EU policy-making (2016) by Sandra Kröger looks at how agricultural, environmental and anti-poverty organisations engage with EU affairs; the ways they conceive of interest representation and the strategies they choose to represent their constituencies across regional, national and European levels of governance; and how being engaged with the EU affects them, focusing throughout on the perspectives that actors working in these organisations have on the above issues.
 
During this OSE Lunchtime Session, Sandra Kröger will be focusing on three questions: To what degree are civil society organisations Europeanized? Who are they addressing when they engage in political representation in EU affairs and with which strategies? And what are the incentives and disincentives for civil society organisation to become engaged with EU policy-making?
Gabriele Bischoff, Sian Jones and Roman Haken will provide critical feedback, after which there will be ample time for discussion and questions from the audience.

Labour Market Reform and the Future of Europe after Brexit

Speaker: Daniel Clegg, Senior Lecturer, The University of Edinburgh

Discussants: Amandine Crespy, Lecturer, Université libre de Bruxelles 
Steven Van Hecke, Assistant Professor, KU Leuven

Chair: Bart Vanhercke, Director, European Social Observatory

During this Lunchtime Session Daniel Clegg will argue that – perhaps – the departure from the Union of the UK, which has been an enthusiastic advocate for a ‘neoliberal’ approach to labour markets, opens a window of opportunity for a wider policy and paradigm reassessment in Europe. Amandine Crespy and Steven Van Hecke will respectively provide feedback on the ‘social causes’ and ‘political consequences’ of Brexit, also in the light of the recent US elections.
