About this book

This collection presents the results of a research agenda which examines how information plays a key role in policymaking. As a very dynamic environment characterized by many different modes of information gathering and processing, the EU forms a particularly interesting case to test the politics of information approach.

Reviews

“This edited volume seeks to open up the black box of policy-making in the EU … through a ‘politics of information’ approach, investigating how information is accessed and processed, and how it affects policy. … The main contribution is the book’s detailed and insightful case studies. … the book is a must-read for everyone interested in opening the black box of EU policy-making.” (Johan Eriksson, Journal of Common Market Studies, Vol. 54 (1), 2016)
