Sectoral networks of transnational trade union cooperation in Europe

[2019-07-03] This network analysis of trade union cooperation in Europe uses survey data and interviews to map and analyze transnational cooperation networks in the metal, construction, transportation, and healthcare sectors. The study examines the extent to which sectoral and regional clustering tendencies exist in these networks and whether there are differences between the sectors with regard to structure, density, and central actors. The results show that networks of regular bilateral cooperation tend to stay within the sectors, and that there are tendencies toward regional clustering in all sectors. Unions in the Nordic and southern regions of Europe have a strong intraregional focus in bilateral cooperation, whereas unions in CEE and CWE countries have a greater share of interregional partners. Unions in the CWE region cluster at the core of all the networks, and German unions are the main brokers between other regions, which tend to cluster in more peripheral offshoots.

How could Expert Involvement Compensate for an Incomplete Capability of Legitimization through Democratic Representation? Debating the Grounds for Political Legitimacy in the EU

[2019-06-10] This article contributes to the scholarly as well as societal decades-long debate on the state of democracy in the EU. The objective is to problematize, discuss, and come up with constructive ideas on the role of expert groups in the processes of legitimization of decision-making within the EU. The analysis is guided by a general research question: how could expert involvement compensate for an incomplete capability of legitimization through democratic representation? The empirical analysis of expert influence in decision-making is guided by a new modelling of the so-called Epistemic Community approach. The case chosen to illustrate the model is the authorization process of the emergency contraceptive ellaOne, within the institutional setting of the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) at the European Medicines Agency. The empirical material consists of interviews with eight members of the CHMP. To guide the empirical analysis the paper introduces a two-dimensional model of the epistemic community approach, which distinguishes between the institutional preconditions and the ideational motivations of expert groups. The results indicate that the experts within the CHMP had an influence on the policy-making process thanks to favourable institutional preconditions as well as ideational motivations of the experts themselves. Our conclusion is that there is a need for 'institutional engineering' as regards the involvement of experts in decision-making, to sustain the legitimacy of expert involvement, and level out the institutional conditions for experts' influence on policy-making within the EU.

Can Two Walk Together, Except they be Agreed? Preliminary References and (the Erosion of) National Procedural Autonomy

[2019-04-24] The Court of Justice’s case law on procedures and remedies before national courts has been highly scrutinised and often criticised, in particular for intruding on the procedural autonomy of the Member States. This article argues that the responsibility for such a development lies at least partially with the national courts. Drawing on an empirical analysis as well as in-depth case studies, the article shows that national courts requesting preliminary references from the Court often actively seek an answer promoting European integration over national autonomy. Furthermore, the analysis suggests that, when a national court assertively argues for the preservation of national procedural rules, it has a comparatively good chance of persuading the Court of Justice. The article concludes that there is still a case to be made for national procedural autonomy, but the success of that case depends upon the national courts’ use of the preliminary reference procedure.

Survival and predation in the humanitarian economy of Lesvos

[2019-04-23] The arrival of life-seekers on the Aegean island of Lesbos has seen the enactment of a range of interventions that mobilise neoliberal market logics and other practices that we call predatory for ostensibly humanitarian purposes. There has been an increased attention in border studies, political geography and social anthropology on the economies of the border regime in EUrope and beyond. Additionally critical studies of humanitarianism have focused attention on the centrality of capitalism, markets, innovation and entrepreneurialism in the saving of lives both historically and in the contemporary period. However there has been less attention paid to similar logics in the emergence of the ‘humanitarian border’ or ‘humanitarian borderwork’. This paper explores the presence of (neo)liberal market logics, predatory and extractive practices in the provision of humanitarian assistance on Lesbos from 2015-18. Drawing on our sustained on-the-ground engagement with humanitarian assistance in Lesbos over the last three years, we highlight the presence of a number of intersecting processes including: entrepreneurial and innovative humanitarian practices premised on a Silicon-Valleyesque, small-is-beautiful, non-state ideal designed to provide basic needs and expand the (neo)liberal market now and in the future through advances in technology; extractive profit seeking practices that seeks to provide basic needs at a price in the absence of adequate humanitarian provision; and predatory practices that see the life-seeker population on the island as a community that can be harvested both for pure profit and other more social ends such as conversion to evangelical ‘big-money’ Christianity. In all instances the life-seeker population is seen as a marketable and extractable commodity that facilitates the advancement of (neo)liberal forms of order and as bodies capable of generating new forms of capital. We argue that such processes are made possible through the intricate and at times intimate relation between the processes of humanitarianism and the need to consolidate the capitalist (neo)liberal status-quo while highlighting how the presence of such predatory survival practices only highlights existing structural insufficiencies in the provision of human security and the absence of fundamental rights.

Learning to Lead? Germany and the Leadership Paradox in EU Foreign Policy

[2019-04-22] Germany’s growing leadership role in the European Union over recent years has been subject to a broad-ranging debate. The changed EU foreign policy-making procedures introduced by the Lisbon Treaty, with a significant delegation of formal leadership functions to the EU level, have created a new dynamic between EU institutions and member states, thereby complicating the picture of how and why Germany exercises leadership in the CFSP. We use social role theory to analyse Germany’s emerging leadership role in European foreign and security policy. We begin by drawing an important distinction between German power on the one hand, and its capacity for leadership on the other. German leadership in European foreign policy has emerged as a result of the Ukraine crisis and is being shaped by the interaction between domestic level factors and the role expectations of its key allies and partners. The form of German leadership in the CFSP reflects the paradoxical nature of post-Lisbon European foreign policy, which we argue can be explained in terms of ‘cross- loading’ dynamics of Europeanization that are horizontal and informal. We illus- trate the evolving form of German leadership with original data from an extensive interview survey and a case study of the Ukraine crisis.

När svenska HD tillät konfiskering av judisk egendom

[2019-04-16] I Sverige avkunnades ett antal domar under nazitiden, vilka i praktiken berövade judar deras egendom. Dessa domar var på det hela taget juridiskt korrekta. De avkunnades av några av Sveriges främsta jurister, som såvitt vi vet inte hyste några sympatier för nazismen eller antisemitiska åsikter och som i andra situationer visat sig väl kapabla till integritet och oberoende. Det skriver Anna Wallerman, biträdande lektor i processrätt vid Göteborgs universitet.

Building or destroying community: the concept of Sittlichkeit in the political thought of Vormärz Germany

[2019-04-11] The purpose of this article is to emphasise the importance of the concept of Sittlichkeit for understanding the contestation around community and social cohesion during the German Vormärz, the decades before 1848. I will demonstrate the centrality of the concept of Sittlichkeit via a conceptual-historically inspired analysis of the works of three thinkers who were at the centre of the development of German political ideologies of the Vormärz era: the liberal Karl Theodor Welcker, the conservative Friedrich Julius Stahl, and the socialist Wilhelm Weitling. The concept of Sittlichkeit was influenced by the philosophy of Hegel and in various ways concerned the customs and social cohesion of a specific community. I will show how this was the case to different extents in the works of Welcker, Stahl, and Weitling. Concomitant with their respective political convictions, Sittlichkeit for Welcker was connected to constitutional liberties, for Stahl related to a hierarchical godly order, and for Weitling it was something which was oppressive, and needed to be destroyed. This discussion about the centrality of Sittlichkeit will also serve to stress another point: that in Vormärz Germany, political ideologies were formed in close connection with Christianity and Christian theology.
