The bicentennial celebration of the Norwegian Constitution in 2014 represents an important milestone and an opportunity to reflect on the role and status of the constitution and of democracy. ARENA and ASANOR will organise a seminar which is open for everyone, but which is particularly directed towards teachers within the social sciences and humanities.
As part of the seminar series Exit, Voice, and Loyalty, jointly organised by the Freedom of Expression Foundation and ARENA, Prof. Jeremy Adelman from Princeton University held the public lecture 'Intellectuals and the crisis of democracy in the 20th century: The odyssey of Albert O. Hirschman'.
With the European parliamentary elections just one year ahead, can we expect Euroscepticism to become dominant? Are there any lessons to be learned from the 2009 campaign? ARENA invites to a book presentation of Contesting Europe by Pieter de Wilde, Asimina Michailidou and Hans-Jörg Trenz.
Southern Europe has been severely struck by the financial crisis, in social as well as political terms. How has the crisis been handled, and could it have been done differently? These questions were discussed at a seminar staged by ARENA during the National Science Week.
Forskningsrådet arrangerer et konfrontasjonsmøte der John Erik Fossum utfordrer stortingsrepresentant Michael Tetzschner om hvorfor den norske Grunnloven i det hele tatt skal feires i 2014.

Kort tid før Stortingsvalget så Partnerforum på utviklinger i forholdet mellom politisk ledelse og offentlig forvalting. Vi satte fokus både på maktkonsentrasjon, lojalitet, faglig uavhengighet og dilemmaer som oppstår i skjæringspunktet mellom politisk styring og forvaltningen av det offentliges samfunnsansvar.
The research project EPISTO (Why not epistocracy? Political legitimacy and 'the fact of expertise') will have its kick-off conference at the University of Oslo April 4 and 5 2013. Participation is limited to registered participants.
The European Union has entered the fifth year of a profound existential crisis. What started as an American financial crisis has come to question the very existence of the European Union, and indeed, has revived secessionist tendencies in several of its Member States (in particular Spain and the United Kingdom). Why is this? What is the present status of crisis? The multiple crises facing the European Union speak to the need for radically rethinking the European Union and the way in which decision-makers, intellectuals, scholars, and the public approach it.
With the Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union as a backdrop, ARENA researchers, in collaboration with 'Partnerforum', will assess recent developments in Europe and question how the Norwegian public administration adapts to the EU.
Jan-Werner Müller from Princeton University will give the lecture 'Fear and Freedom: The Legacies of Mid-Twentieth-Century Liberalism' as a part of the series 'The 1814 Lectures'.
