The relationship between reforms and integration is tight, bi-directional, and understudied. For example, trade liberalisation is a cornerstone of most integration experiences yet as integration deepens it feeds back into structural reforms. Although Europe is synonymous with deep integration, we still know too little about the nature, dynamics and cross-effects between European integration and structural reforms. The objective of this conference, made possible by a research grant from the ESRC (ES/P000274/1), is to bring together theoretical and empirical studies that address these issues. Papers are being sought on topics that include:

• Globalization, European Integration and Structural Reforms  

• Income Inequality and Structural Reforms in the EU

• Convergence, Growth and Structural Reforms in the EU

• Capital, Labour and Product Market Reforms in the EU

• Country case studies covering some of the above topics
