Transatlantic Relations and institutionalisation



This one-day seminar explores the phenomenon of institutions, institutionalisation and transatlantic relations. Previously, it had been viewed as falling short of institutionalisation. The seminar considers whether transatlantic relations in contemporary times a useful study of global governance? What is a leading global regulation casestudy now and why? How do the EU’s new generation trade agreements, negotiations and data protection developments impact upon this? What kind of a casestudy is it currently across disciplines? The seminar reflects upon contemporary understandings of institutionalisation as integration of regimes and orders from an EU perspective. Is institutionalisation a useful meeting point for all disciplines? Does it explain regional integration meaningfully across subjects?

The seminar considers the gap between institutionalisation and lesser forms of non-institutionalisation in regimes. It does this by focussing principally upon the case of EU international relations qua transatlantic relations in data, security and trade. It explores the gap between flexibility (e.g. hybridity) and rules-based approaches from the perspective of trade and regulation, EU public law, EU institutional law, international relations and EU studies. It specifically brings together regulation and governance scholars with data protection, international economic law and critical studies.
