This is a journal linked to Europe Direct Information Centre of Aveiro and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies of the Twentieth Century, University of Coimbra - CEIS20, in partnership with the Office of the European Parliament in Portugal and the European Commission Representation in Portugal.


Its number 8 is now being prepared to be launched in 2013 and the theme will be "The flexibility of European Construction". It would therefore be relevant that the dossier of this issue of Debating Europe, coordinated by Maria Isabel Valente Freitas and Dulce Lopes, allowed the stimulation of a set of reflections that would focus on the aspects considered in the title, which may further specified as follows :

  1. Enhanced Cooperation
  2. Terms of Opting In / Out
  3. Tension enlargement / deepening
  4. The possibility of leaving EU
  5. The Euro crisis and the stabilization treaty

 The magazine Debating Europe therefore calls on submitting papers, in the form of journal articles or book reviews, which meet the mentioned topic.

For articles, the interested parties should also specify the thematic line where they should be included.  Articles should be sent by 28 February 2013.

Contributions must be original and unpublished, and must not have been submitted for consideration for publication in other journals. The texts may be presented in Spanish, Portuguese, French and English, and processed in Microsoft Word format, Times New Roman, size 12, one space and half (with the exception of long quotations and footnotes, which should be in size 10, single space).
