Kolleg-Forschergruppe der DFG „The Transformative Power of Europe“

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Tanja Börzel, Thomas Risse

Oct 01, 2008 — Sep 30, 2016

Object of Research The diffusion of ideas has become a central research theme in political science, sociology, law, history, and economics. Scholars have focused on how ideas are spread across time and space, as can be observed especially in the European Union in various sociopolitical fields. The European Union (EU) serves as an almost ideal laboratory for investigating processes and outcomes of diffusion. However, considering the limited progress in the global harmonization of norms and ...

The European Union's Foreign Policy In Comparative Perspective: Evaluating And Generating Hypotheses On ‘Actorness And Power'

Ingo Peters

Jan 01, 2012 — Dec 31, 2014

In view of the evolution of the EU, in terms of institutionalization and policy-making, the EU might still be a sui generis actor in international affairs. However, at the same time – in view of the many faces of globalization – nation states might no longer be ‘nation states’ and (at least some) international organizations no longer ‘international organizations’ in terms of the ideal types mostly used for comparison with the EU. Against the backdrop of the apparently never-ending ...
