Juneau World Affairs Forum

Where is Europe’s Power? Transnational Standards and Diplomatic Expertise in Brussels

In this session, “Where is Europe’s Power? Transnational Standards and Diplomatic Expertise in Brussels”, we hear from University of British Columbia’s Dr. Merje Kuus.

How do European diplomats know what they know and how have they come to know what they know? By considering the social lives of diplomatic expertise, a ‘peopled’ and ‘experience-­near’ account of how Brussels works is offered. Beyond Europe, the infamously opaque horse-­trading in Brussels can tell us a great deal about the transformations of state power today.

The Juneau World Affairs Council and the University of Southeast, in collaboration with 360 North, present the 2018 World Affairs Forum, Europe: Allies and Alliances in a Turbulent World.

With support from AEL&P, Coeur Alaska Kensington Mine, Dreamhost.com, Haight & Associates, Sealaska, The Prospector Hotel, and Wostmann & Associates.
