The Swedish Network for European Studies (SNES) conference takes place at Linnaeus University, Vaxjo, Sweden on 11-12 April 2019.
SNES brings together academics, including graduate students, from across Sweden and Europe.
The theme for the conference is DEMOCRACY AT THE CROSSROADS - EUROPEAN CHANGES AND CHALLENGES. A quarter-century ago, scholars in the social sciences proclaimed the triumph of democracy. During this time, Europe’s common values such as democracy, human rights, freedom of the individual and the rule of law appeared to become universal and the only game in town. The prospects for a Europe without dividing lines seemed most promising. Today, the situation is dramatically different. Democracy is currently under serious pressure and in retreat based on a possible reverse wave of authoritarianism and populism challenging the very foundations of the European integration and collaboration among the EU institutions.
