     Presidency of the EU. It will start with a public debate, followed by 
     two days of working group discussions, all at the Achilleion Palace in 
     Corfu. The participants, young university-based researchers in 
     politics, law, economics and sociology, will focus on three themes

     * National identities and the legitimacy of the EU * Economic cohesion 
     and convergence in Europe

     London School of Economics and Political Science and the 
     Wissenschaftzentrum Berlin), the University of Athens and the European 
     Commission. 
     
     About 50 scholarships are available for this conference to final year 
     doctoral, and first year post-doctoral researchers of one of the above 
     subjects working full-time on their research at any university in the 
     EU or in one of the 'Agenda 2000' states. They will cover all costs at 
     the conference and a standard grant towards international travel. 
     Apply enclosing a CV and a brief outline paper relating to one of the 
     three themes. Further information can be found on the British

     The Ionian Conference II
     
     1999
     
     Integrating the New Europe
     
     
     
     Summary
     The Ionian Conference will be held in Corfu from 13 to 16 May 1999. It 
     is the second major conference on the problems of European integration 
     at the time of enlargement of the EU and is designed specifically for 
     young social scientists from the countries of the present European 
     Union - and of the six early accession countries. Supported by the 
     Greek Government and the European Commission, together with the Goethe 
     Institute, the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung and the Freie Universitat 
     Berlin, the Ionian Conference is organised by the British Council and 
     EPIC (the European Political-economy Infrastructure Consortium). The 
     conference will form a part of the programme of the German Presidency 
     of the European Union.
     
     The aim of the conference is to bring together for intensive, 
     informal, interdisciplinary discussions a relatively small group - 
     about 50 - of `rising stars' in social science research from all 
     disciplines. They will explore and compare current research approaches 
     and findings on three major, related themes of European integration. 
     The conference will contribute to academic debates throughout Europe 
     not only by the publication of papers, but also by creating and 
     deepening contacts between young European social scientists, and by 
     encouraging the development of research networks. The 
     cross-fertilisation between different disciplines and intellectual 
     traditions will be an additional output from this meeting.
     
     
     Objectives
     
     * to create a forum in which young European social scientists can
     discuss the major issues of European integration across the boundaries 
     of country and discipline 
     * to encourage the development of common and comparative research by 
     young social scientists, of different but related disciplines, from 
     all parts of the EU, and to cross-fertilise research projects to the 
     benefit both of individual researchers and of their institutions 
     * to draw into existing and newly created research networks young 
     researchers from all over the EU, especially from those countries that 
     are currently under-networked. In doing so to address the networking 
     needs, and the relevant experience, of researchers in the six early 
     accession countries.
     
     Date and Place
     The conference will take place near the end of the German Presidency 
     of the EU, from 13th to 16th May 1998. It will be inaugurated by a 
     formal debate involving ministers from the British, German and Greek 
     Governments.  The Conference will be held in the Achilleon Palace, 
     designated seat for the Ionian Academy, which is currently being 
     constituted. Accommodation will be in a nearby hotel.
     
     
     The Ionian Academy
     The original Ionian Academy, created during the French occupation of 
     Corfu, was transformed by the British into what was effectively the 
     first modern Greek university. That Academy ceased to exist when Corfu 
     joined the Kingdom of Greece, and the Academy's professors joined the 
     University of Athens. In 1996 the Greek government legislated for the 
     establishment of a new Ionian Academy as a forum to encourage and 
     develop research on European Integration.  The upper floors of the 
     Achilleion Palace, refurbished for the EU Corfu Summit of June 1994, 
     have been designated as the seat of the Academy.
     
     
     Format
     The formal inauguration of the conference will be the only part of the 
     conference open to the public and the media.  It will be a 
     high-profile event with major speakers.
     
     The chairman will be Ulrich Bruckner (Freie Universitat, Berlin) and 
     the keynote speaker, Vincent Wright (Nuffield College, Oxford).
     Other speakers will come from the EPIC partners (the European 
     University Institute, Florence, the Instituto Juan March, Madrid, the 
     London School of Economics and Political Science and the 
     Wissenschaftzentrum Berlin) and from the European Commission.
     
     The conference itself will begin with a plenary session which will 
     consist of an introduction from the overall conference chair and brief 
     presentations by the chairs of the three working groups, followed by 
     preliminary discussion.  The main work of the conference will take 
     place in the three informal working groups (maximum size 20) which 
     will meet in five sessions, three on Friday and two on Saturday.  Each 
     working group will be chaired by two leading social scientists. Sunday 
     morning will be devoted to a closing plenary with reports delivered by 
     two rapporteurs from each group.  The conference will conclude with 
     lunch on Sunday.  
     
     The Conference seeks to foster informal useful exchanges and to avoid 
     formal speeches. Seating at the working lunches on Friday and Saturday 
     will be according to working groups.  On Friday a formal dinner with a 
     placement to encourage contact between members of different working 
     groups, will be preceded by a lecture given by a leading academic 
     figure.  In the late afternoon of Saturday there will be a guided tour 
     of Corfu town, followed by an informal dinner.
     
     
     
     
     Conference Themes
     
     * National identities and the legitimacy of the EU * Economic cohesion 
     and convergence in Europe
     * The reform of European government structures 
     
     Language and Publication
     The language of the conference will be English and all papers will be 
     written and delivered in English. It is intended that all discussion 
     papers be made available on the internet before the conference, and a 
     limited number will be selected for publication in full in EPIC's 
     on-line journal. Only unpublished contributions will be considered.
     
     
     Recruitment of Participants
     An advertisement will be placed on the web-sites of DGXII, the EPIC 
     partners (EUI, IJM, LSE,and WZB), CORDIS, the British Council, the 
     Goethe Institute and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung offering up to 50 
     "scholarships" to pay for young social science researchers to attend 
     the conference after competitive selection. Applicants should be aged 
     25 to 33, in the final year of a PhD or equivalent, or having 
     completed and passed a PhD in the preceding 12 months. They should be 
     citizens of the EU or one of the six early accession countries 
     (Cyprus, Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia and Estonia). 
     
     All candidates are asked to send a CV and a two-page draft outline for 
     a paper (to be given to one of the working groups) as the bases for 
     the selection committee to make the final choices of scholarship 
     holders. 
     
     The scholarships will cover all basic costs at the conference and a 
     standard grant towards international travel. Apply enclosing a CV and 
     a two-page draft outline for a paper relating to one of the three 
     themes. Further information can be found on the British Council's 
     website at http://www.britcoun.org/european/ or, in case of 
     difficulty, through Amber Dalton on ++44 (0) 171 389 4613.  
     Applications, before Friday 19 March 1999, to the Academic 
     Co-ordinator Dr Alain Guyomarch, 
     LSE (European Institute), Houghton Street, London WC2A 2AE (e-mail:
