‘Beauty Contests’ in a wider interdisciplinary setting: three days among investment screening & security professionals


On June 2, 2022, Sophie Meunier presented a paper ‘Fair Play? The Politics of Evaluating Foreign Subsidies in the European Union’ written in collaboration with Christilla Roederer-Rynning and Robert Basedow, at CELIS Forum on Investment Screening 2022.  The Forum took place at the premises of Uppsala University on June 1 – 3, and brought together  a broad range of professionals working with investment screening and security, including academics, EU officials, national experts, diplomats, representatives of business, civil society and media from Europe and beyond. Anna Vlasiuk Nibe attended the Forum as well as an individual delegate, and had a chance to discuss with Sophie the ‘Beauty Contests’ project and opportunities for further collaboration.


We thank organizers and sponsors of the event for three fantastic days full of discussions, networking, and inspiration for future research.
