Please join us for an informal lunch Conversation with Dorota Dakowska, a leading expert on Central and Eastern European Politics and the author of Le pouvoir des fondations.

Contemporary contestation of European integration takes various forms. Is Euroscepticism a useful tool to analyze heterogeneous forms of criticism expressed individually and collectively in Western and Eastern Europe? Can we classify citizens attitudes as being for or against the EU? How do political party leaders refer to European integration? Our conversation will address these questions as well as more general social and political uses of Europe.

Dorota Dakowska is Assistant Professor in Political Science at the University of Strasbourg (Sciences Po). She has published a book on the German political foundations and their involvement in the Central and Eastern European transitions, (Le pouvoir des fondations. Des acteurs de la politique trangre allemande, Presses Universitaires de Rennes, 2014) as well as several articles in journals and chapters in edited volumes on the EU Eastern Enlargement, the German foreign policy and its actors as well as the transnational party cooperation.

The event is organized by East Central European Center, and Columbia University Central and Eastern European Club. Lunch will be served.
