About this Event Following the recent publication of a special issue in Regional Studies (2020, Vol 54, No 11) studying immigrant integration policies at the subnational level, this webinar will discuss the drivers and effects of subnational immigrant integration beyond the cases studied in the SI. While the SI has offered inspiring results regarding subnational integration policies in Europe and North America, the aim of this webinar is to adopt a more global outlook by discussing immigrant integration policies ‘worldwide’, i.e. with insights from other geographical areas (Africa, Asia, Latin America). To discuss the drivers and effects of immigrant integration in less studied countries or regional areas, the webinar will feature experts from different geographical areas.

For a long time, the decarbonisation targets and policies of the EU have been seen as good news for natural gas. However, the introduction of increasingly stringent long-term emissions reduction targets are calling into question the medium-to-long term prospects of such a commodity in Europe, as gas demand is foreseen to stabilise in the EU-27 over the coming decade, to fall abruptly as of 2030. Such a dynamic is likely to affect several natural gas exporters in the EU’s neighbourhood. For these countries, the energy relations with the EU are important on economic, political, social and ideational grounds. The effect of decarbonisation on a key export good entails a significant change in an important aspect in these countries’ bilateral relations with the EU. How does the future look for these countries’ resources as their main customer accelerates its decarbonisation plans? Is Europe’s energy transition likely to trigger a re-orientation in the hydrocarbons exporters’ foreign policy and commercial strategies? And what does this mean for the EU’s energy and climate diplomacy in its Eastern and Southern neighbourhood? Venue: Online, please register here to attend Date: 4 March 2021, 14:30 – 16:30
