Brief description: An analysis of the development and deployment of discourses of globalisation and external context in European Union policy-making. The research will produce a conceptual map of the understandings and knowledge bases of claims about globalisation within the European Commission. It explores the nature of the relationship between the use of such discourses and the enhanced legitimacy of the Europeanisation of governance functions.
Partner institutions: these include the European University Institute, Aarhus University, the University of Birmingham and the University of Mannheim.
