Research Seminar: “European Defence Policy: Another Case of ‘Failing Forward’ Integration”, with Antoine Rayroux

March 27, 2018 at 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Location:Alumni Boardroom, Room 617, 6th floor Robertson Hall

The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence will host a research seminar, “European Defence Policy: Another Case of ‘Failing Forward’ Integration” with Antoine Rayroux, Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science, Concordia University.

About the seminar: Faced with global power transition and US retrenchment, Europeans have recently taken a series of steps towards greater defence cooperation. This research seminar analyzes the case of European defence cooperation through the lens of the “failing forward” view of European integration, which argues that incomplete intergovernmental agreements lead to policy failure, which in turn triggers the next steps of integration.

About the speaker: Antoine Rayroux is an Assistant Professor at Concordia University (Montreal). His research and publications deal with the comparative foreign and security policies of European states, EU peacekeeping policies and transatlantic diplomatic relations between Canada and the EU.

The event is free and open to the public. Please check back for further details.

This event is co-sponsored by the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in the Centre for European Studies (CES) at Carleton University. Jean Monnet Centre events are co-funded by a grant from the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
