The Lille Jean Monnet Conference, which will take place 26th, 27th and 28th June 2017, is the key event of the project EURÉGIO, led by the University of Lille 1, Sciences and Technologies, since September 2015 in the framework of the European programme Eramus + Jean Monnet, with the objective to appraise the knowledge, foster the debate and consider the evolutions of regions and regionalism in the context of the European construction.

The conference is opened to theoretical contributions, comparative and factual case studies or fieldworks that will address issues related to this theme. The two lines that structure the call for papers are intentionally broad and interdisciplinary to address the regional question in Europe in all its diversity :

Line 1 : Regions and regional governance in Europe
Line 2 : Regions in the European Union, the European Union in the regions

Some of the papers will be published following the conference, according to the publication programme of the project EURÉGIO.
