You want to know what it is all about the upcoming European parliament elections? Discuss with scientists and policy makers current hot EU topics during the Magdeburg Symposium, taking place from 9. – 11. May at the Otto-von-Guericke University. On the agenda: Asylum Policy, Lobbyism and the role of German within the EU. The conference language will be German.
The International Network for European Studies is proud to be a project partner to this conference and invites all interested young people from age 16-30 to register now on http://www.symposium-magdeburg.ovgu.de/Symposium+Magdeburg.html
INES organizes a workshop on the European elections on Friday afternoon – learn about the different parties, their candidates, their history, their programme and about their vision for Europe. We hope to see you there!
A lot of inspiring discussions and ideas came up during the annual members’ meeting in February: organize networking evenings, prepare for the European election and engage with this years’ Magdeburg Symposium in May. Moreover, the relocation from Bremen to Berlin has to be formally implemented.
The INES board is looking forward to new projects in 2014 and encourages its members and friends to raise awareness about European topics and – of course – the European election. Why not conducting a poll at your university and publish your own election forecast on our facebook page?
After due consideration and some discussions the INES board decided that the International Network for European Studies will be moving to Berlin soon! This decision comes along with a couple of changes with regard to administrative formalities. Of course, no changes will be made regarding our aims and our mission – which still is to bring the European Union closer to its citizens and its youth. Our new address can be found in the website’s section Contact Us soon.
INES had a great time in the beautiful city of Bremen during the last 7 years. However, we are also very excited about our new future home and the upcoming possibilities for INES to get active in the German capital.
At the same time, we’re using this opportunity to update and to revise not only our website – which was attacked by hackers some time ago. Hopefully very soon you will be able to have access to all information and sections again. Moreover, we’re working on some new features for our website. Check us out!
On July 14th, a number of INES members came together in Berlin for another INES meeting this year. The main focus was put on the discharge of the board’s liability for the year 2011 which was granted by the present members at last. Apart from that, a thorough discussion on the proposed relocation of INES to Berlin took place and different channels of information such as the website and the Facebook profile were talked over and reorganized. Moreover, the postponement of the Green Economy project was announced and, finally, possible projects and initiatives for INES were discussed.
We thank all participating members for a productive and pleasant meeting!
