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 has also produced an 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 centre 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. This lecture aims to grasp the scope and nature of this ongoing change.

A Panel Discussion on Democratic Decay with Sheri Berman (Barnard College, Columbia University) and Jan Zielonka (St Antony's College, Oxford University). Berman is the author of Democracy and Dictatorship in Europe: From the Ancien Régime to the Present Day (OUP, 2019) and Zielonka is the author of Counter-Revolution: Liberal Europe in Retreat (OUP, 2018).
Berman and Zielonka will discuss each other's books and discuss questions including: why is liberal democracy in retreat, and why is democracy having the problems it is today? What are the key factors undergirding the rise of populism? How should we understand illiberalism in Eastern Europe? What role could or should the European Union play in "policing" political developments in Eastern Europe? What is the relative role of immigration and economic factors in driving dissatisfaction?

Anu Bradford, speaker
The Brussels Effect challenges the prevalent view that the European Union is a declining world power. It argues that notwithstanding its many obvious challenges, the EU remains an influential superpower that shapes the world in its image through a phenomenon called the "Brussels Effect."
The Brussels Effect refers to the EU's unilateral power to regulate global markets. Without the need to resort to international institutions or seek other nations' cooperation, the EU has the unique ability among nations today to promulgate regulations that shape the global business environment, elevating standards worldwide and leading to a notable Europeanization of many important aspects of global commerce. Different from many other forms of global influence, the Brussels Effect entails that the EU does not need to impose its standards coercively on anyone—market forces alone are often sufficient to convert the EU standard into the global standard as multinational companies voluntarily extend the EU rule to govern their global operations.
In this way, the EU wields significant, unique, and highly penetrating power to unilaterally transform global markets, including through its ability to set the standards in diverse areas such as antitrust regulation, data protection, online hatespeech, consumer health and safety, or environmental protection.
This lecture is presented in collaboration with the Institute for Global Studies and is part of the Spring Fulbright Lecture Series.
