News from Feb 18, 2021
The Berlin Infringement Database (BID) provides the statistical basis for the new book "Why Noncompliance. The Poltiics of Law in the European Union" by Prof. Dr. Tanja A. Börzel, published by Cornell University Press. In the book, she examines noncompliance in the European Union (EU). Among other questions, she investigates the conditions under which EU states break EU law and to what extent this influences EU governance. Along the new publication, she has written the blog post "Compliance and Crisis in the European Union" which is published via the Cornell University Press blog.
The BID offers a unique and hands-on resource for researchers interested in questions of legal compliance. It allows for both cross-sectional and time-series testing of country-specific, sector-specific and legal act-specific determinants of compliance with EU legislation. At the time, the BID is the most comprehensive available database of its kind, containing 13.367 infringement cases covering the time span from 1978 to 2019. You can access the BID via the link below or the "Berlin Infringement Database" tab of the homepage of the Center for European Integration. There you can get to know the BID, edit and download the dataset.
