The European Documentation Centre and the Institute for European Studies (University of Malta) hosted a public lecture by Professor Michelle Pace (Roskilde University, Denmark) on Tuesday 23rd May 2017.

This public lecture focused on the impact of emotions on the European Union (EU) as an international agency. Professor Pace discussed the results of her recent research, showing that emotions are understood as performances through which an individual or collective actor can expresses itself to others while constructing its identity, creating its agency, and potentially affecting the social order. Professor Pace focused on the impact in relation to the EU’s engagement in the Israel-Palestinian conflict that has many underlying emotions linked with past traumatic experiences. Her aim was to instigate a discussion between the emotions literature in International Relations and the European Union studies literature to nuance understanding of the politics of emotions that increasingly constrain what kind of a global actor the EU actually is or can become.


Prof. Michelle Pace is a Professor at Roskilde University (Denmark), and has collaborated with the Institute for European Studies in the recent past.
