Securing impact: the GR:EEN Final Dissemination Conference
The multiplicity of the objects investigated, as well as the variety of methods applied to so vast a topic as ‘the EU and global reordering’, have been an asset as much as a challenge throughout the GR:EEN project’s 4–year span. Approaches more focused on the global and international politics implications of the changes affecting the international system have been applied alongside perspectives more focused on the public policies underlying the development of genuine European networks. Nevertheless, keeping the manifold aspects of the project’s research activities within a consistent analytical framework was only part of the task, since this in-built diverseness has also had to be made the most of to lay out an effective dissemination of the GR:EEN findings. In order to process the project’s results in a set of viable policy recommendations, partners from all the ‘provinces’ of the project met up with an array of stakeholders to ensure a significant impact of the GR:EEN activities on relevant decision–making processes.
