European Studies Lecture
From Europe of States to Europe of Networks
Jan Zielonka is a professor of European Politics and Society at Oxford University.
The economic map of Europe has changed dramatically over the past three decades. Spatial flows of capital, goods, services, and labor have intensified dramatically, but unevenly and in a very
differentiated manner. A series of economic crises over the past three decades have also produced uneven geography of costs and benefits.
Brexit is likely to complicate Europe’s political and economic geography further. Mega-cities, regions, and firms are at the center of this spatial arrangement. Instead of well-structured and legally bounded variable geometry, we have spontaneous, informal and hybrid cooperative arrangements between numerous private and public actors. The objective of this lecture is to grasp the scope and nature of this ongoing change.
