‘Unraveling Ties? The Unintended Consequences of Interregionalism’.
In the context of growing interactions between regional actors, organisations, projects and institutions, the study of interregional relations appears increasingly on the agenda of Regionalism studies. While interregional relations always have a stated intent, many of them invariably produce an array of unforeseen consequences. Hence, instead of focusing on the intended outcomes of these relations and assessing whether and to which extent the actors have reached their objectives, this workshop and the upcoming edited volume will centre on their unintended effects of interregionalism and how the actors have acknowledged and reacted to these unforeseen outcomes.
A Call for Proposals will be launched to invite contributions that will investigate a particular area or policy in interregional relations, and inductively look at the unintended consequences of these relations. Selected applicants will be invited to join both this closed workshop hosted by the University of Hamburg, and to contribute to the subsequent edited volume. Travel and accommodation costs for all invited participants will be covered by the organisers.
More information about the Call for Proposals is available here (opening 24th Nov 2017, at 5pm CET).
