This network has a dual focus. It analyzes the extent to which the EU impacts on-going reform dynamics in a post-crisis context, focusing on the ideational and strategic influence of the EU on key actors, and how they impact countries with differing institutional legacies and contexts. It also focuses on governance and decision-making through the Lisbon Treaty in a broad range of policy areas, and how these relate to issues of popular legitimacy and contestation in the EU.

2016 Annual Best Paper Prize Winner
The European Integration and Global Political Economy Research Network is delighted to announce the winner of this year's annual prize for the best paper presented by a network member in a network sponsored panel at the 2016 CES Conference in Philadelphia.
The Prize Committee has decided to award this year’s best paper prize to "Which road leads to wall street? The financialization of regions in the European Union", written by Michael Schwan, PhD student at the University of Cologne.
The paper impressed the jury by its originality and analytical rigor. Michael's paper analyses the relationship between different regional economic configurations in the European Union and the rise of processes of financialization, thereby combining two branches of literature in innovative ways and, by connecting wider issues of political economy to the study of European integration, speaking to the remit of the network in a highly fruitful manner. Congratulations to Michael!
The prize-winning paper will be formally announced at the network’s meeting during next year's CES conference in Glasgow, July 12-14, 2017.
