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.
