There have been 64 years since the Schuman Declaration and his dream about united Europe, 63 years from the treaty of Paris and the establishment of the first European community, 57 years since the treaties of Rome, 22 years since the treaty on European Union and the introduction of the EU citizenship, 15 years since the creation of the common European currency and 7 years since the Lisbon treaty. Since its creation, European Union has changed and transformed itself significantly., not only in terms of numbers—from 6 founding states to 28 full member states and 5 official candidate states—but also in terms of purpose, functions and its organizing logic. This transformation has been more radical in the post-Cold War era. Yet, alongside transformation during this time EU has faced a lot of obstacles and controversies. Without its own army EU is often referred as economical giant but political dwarf. Furthermore, EU has become one of the most powerful economies in the word but in the same time has faced one of the worst economic crises.

             The above mentioned is a motive for lunching this year's call for papers titled as: "EU-2014, Current issues and perspectives ". This interdisciplinary academic event is aimed at gathering numerous researchers from various academic disciplines from Europe and worldwide..
