Friday, April 30, 2010 - 9:00 AM
Schlegel Building, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Canada
Apr 30
Organizers: Rimini Centre for Economic Analysis in Canada, Viessmann European Research Centre, The International Migration Research Centre, WLU, * Co-sponsored by CIGI * Purpose: Post – war European integration started sixty years ago with the establishment of the Council of Europe. Forty years later the Berlin Wall fell and Europe is rapidly becoming ‘whole’ again. Great strides are made in the economic and political spheres, in particular through the expansion of the European Union (EU). However, labour mobility is still somewhat constrained, as are social, political and defence integration efforts. This interdisciplinary conference will look at the development of European integration and its future, focusing on economic, regional and migration issues.
