Abstract: Although my discussion comprises a wide variety of films, my focus will be primarily on Nicolae Margineanu’s Schimb Valutar (Exchange, Romania, 2008). I argue that this film symbolically substitutes the figure of the prostitute prevalent in national cinema with the figure of a prostitute from the Republic of Moldova, whose affective labor is used to restore the vitality of the national male subject at a moment of crisis and real and symbolic impotence. As I show, Exchange complicates the dominant paradigm in cinematic representations of the migration of Eastern European women.

Abstract: Since its creation in 1951 as one of the political institutions of the European Coal and Steal Community, the Common Assembly (which later became the European Parliament (EP)) has been empowered through several measures of institutionalization and legitimization. These measures have been presented by different political and bureaucratic actors, and by a large number of scholars as well, as “natural outcomes” of the so-called “European integration process” and as important steps in reducing the “democratic deficit” of the European Union (EU). Another argumentative line claims that the measures which contribute to the EP empowerment are deliberate “victories” of federalist or supranational ideas against intergovernmentalism and national-state centered politics.
This paper, besides questioning the developmentalist idea of any “natural evolution” of the EU, aims at a reassessment of the link between institutionalization of the EP, “supranationalism” and, more widely, political ideas by analyzing two particular examples of institutional changes which have contributed to the institutionalization of the EP: the decision to hold direct elections for European elections, taken at the Summit of Paris in December 1974, and the legal recognition of “political parties at the European level” in the Maastricht Treaty, which is often presented to stem from the direct election of the EP.
By comparing the argumentative positioning of actors who have been mobilizing for or justifying these institutional modifications and the actual socio-historical genesis of these precise decisions, this paper shows that both are widely disconnected and thus contributes to the reassessment of the respective role of ideas and interests in institutional change in the European Union.

Abstract: The paper tries to assess whether there is an emerging transnational institutional basis of policy-oriented actors, around which an inclusive, democratic European public sphere may be entrenched. More specifically, this paper aims to map European think tanks attitudes towards diversity, European Polity (EP), European Public Sphere (EPS) and their involvement in trans-European collaboration/communication and in European-level public debates. The statements and views expressed by think tank leaders during interviews and in their publications, including also their stated objectives, will be mapped comparatively. Their orientation and openness towards diversity, the EP, and the EPS will be depicted with a view to assessing how their discourses and transnational networking contribute to the articulation of a European public sphere. The key question is which factors make think tanks more or less responsive/open to citizens’ concerns when they create research agendas, disseminate or open their results to end-users’ exploitation. To answer this overall question, the paper uses empirical findings and preliminary analysis about the interconnectedness between different types of publics and public spaces in 16 European countries.

Abstract: In this paper, I argue that the accountability of national bureaucrats when they fail to enforce European Union legislation is enhanced by the creation of informal networks of national and supranational officials.

Abstract: Being two of the most important political entities in the world, China and the European Union do not share clear understanding of each other. In particular, at the time of financial crisis, when Chinese renminbi has been viewed as the cure for all, it is critical to understand how Chinese people think of the European and the EU in this critical moment. This paper aims to answer this question by comparing the view of the regular Chinese people and the Chinese elites toward the European the EU. Using the first hand survey data collected in 2011, we have found that regular Chinese people do not share similar view with the Chinese elites toward the European and the EU. The difference lies in the fact that these two groups have different venues for getting the information and thus they forge different views. Modeling with multilevel regressions and poststratification, we are able to break down the group of regular Chinese into various demographical segments and find that the conclusion is consistent with the comparison between the groups of elites and the regular people.
