DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Research Agendas in EU Studies brings together an international team of leading scholars from a variety of disciplines and viewpoints to explore the complex questions arising from the ongoing transformation of Europe through the deepening and widening effects of European integration. Based on authoritative in-depth analyses, the book takes account of the many national, transnational and international processes and contexts in which European integration has become embedded.

The book provides cutting-edge surveys of the major areas of EU studies. Competing theoretical, ideological and methodological discourses that shape EU studies are examined and new research challenges, directions and agendas are identified.

The book will serve as a standard reference tool for academics and students interested in theories, institutional analysis, and the transformation of European polities, economies and societies in response to Europeanization.

Reviews

'The volume is highly recommended to readers who wish to acquire knowledge about and a better understanding of European integration and European studies. By successfully achieving its goal, the book becomes both a reference for further research and an insightful source for European studies.' Gozde Yilmaz, Political Studies Review.
 
'This is an impressive and wide-ranging collection of essays which review the 'state of the art' and the future research agenda in European Union studies'.
- Professor Simon Bulmer, University of Sheffield, UK

 
'The editors have brought together an outstanding group of scholars who have written chapters which provide excellent overviews of the state of the literature in key areas as well as map the terrain of future research. Scholars as well as students will view this volume as the one to 'go to' when they want rigorous, perceptive, and crystal clear analyses and evaluations of the major areas of inquiry in European Union Studies. It is an excellent piece of work.'
- Professor Alberta Sbragia, Mark A. Nordenberg University Chair, Jean Monnet Chair ad personam, Director, European  Union Center of Excellence/European Studies Center, University of Pittsburgh, USA
