Comparing the experience of the US during the nineteenth century and the European single market of in the twentieth century, the corresponding political and societal struggles that ensued provides an interesting lens into the dilemmas facing European integration, as the consolidation of markets in the US took place in conjunction with the expansion of state regulatory power and the pressures for democratic reform. By examining how- and how successfully markets have been consolidated in these two large economies, we can ask what accounts for the political success or failure in creating single markets in their respective territories? Can social discontent threaten market integration with a populist backlash, and if so, what needs to be done to create political support for market integration? While we focus on these questions in Europe, Yet as the EU confronts many challenges in terms of its identity, solidarity, the sovereign debt crisis and the efforts to tackle burgeoning public deficits, backlash against foreign immigration, downward pressure on wage rates, and so forth, these economic and social impacts resonate with the American experience. Many of these economic governance issues are ongoing within the EU, but the legal and political choices in how the US and EU have integrated their respective single markets, and the dynamics of federalism are relevant even today for contemporary transatlantic trade negotiations.

Energy 2030: Paths to a Sustainable Future

September 12 - September 14

Alice Campbell Alumni Center

Organized by the Institute of Sustainability, Energy and Environment (iSEE), this Congress will assemble leading national and international scientists from different disciplines to focus on the potential for improvements in energy efficiency, alternative forms of renewable energy, and other low-carbon sources of energy to meet societal needs for electricity, transportation, and heating more sustainably in the future. This Congress will provide not only a forum to discuss the near- and medium-term challenges on the path toward sustainable energy consumption, but also key takeaways for an agenda of actionable research and policy directions that could contribute to long-term solutions.
