Lecture by Prof. A. Maurits van der Veen, College of William & Mary: ”National Visions of European Integration: How EU Citizens in Different Countries Think about the EU”
Friday, October 4, 2013 | 12 – 1:30 pm | UNC-Chapel Hill, FedEx Global Education Center 4003
Maurits van der Veen (College of William & Mary) is a political scientist whose research examines the various ways policy-makers think about (“frame”) foreign policy issues, and the impact that different frames, in turn, have on actual policy choices. He has applied this approach to the study of foreign aid policy in Western Europe and the United States, the politics of European integration and EU enlargement, and the terminology used to describe massive human rights violations (what happens if you refuse to call a genocide a genocide?). He also develops agent-based computational models to analyze the impact of social networks on the spread of foreign policy frames, and of ideas more generally.
