By the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence of the University of Pécs
As part of its  ”Borderless Europe”  programme, the centre intends to publish an  E-book during the
Spring of 2014.

The  publication  will  serve  two  purposes:  1.  to  offer  colleagues,  researchers,  PhD  students  the opportunity to publish articles which then will be provided with wide and free access with the help of  the  Internet;  2.  to  support  teaching  activities  in  the  fields  of  EU  studies,  integration  and international studies. The book will contain two major collections: one devoted to scholarly papers, academic  articles,  the  other  one  to  documents. It  will  be  published  on  DVD,  which  will  be distributed to fellow centres, libraries, EU institutions, university departments, and NGOs.
The academically reviewed book under the working title “Challenges of the European Union” will be edited by Ágnes Tuka, Andrea Schmidt and István Tarrósy.
With this call the editors invite papers  –  after carefully and thoroughly following and meeting  the Guidelines for authors, having been submitted to a spell check and prepared in proper English  –  in the following topics:

1. The European Union in the world: difficulties and challenges in the light of the global crisis
