Launch of the EU-28 Watch
With the first edition of its EU-Watch since Croatia’s accession, IEP is happy to announce the start of the publication process of the EU-28 Watch. This year’s issue of the Watch focuses on three main topics:
- • euroscepticism and the European Parliament elections,
- • the EU’s Neighbourhood, and
- • power relations within the Union.
Reports will be published online in June/July 2014
The internet platform EU-27 Watch is a free of cost database compiling material on discourses on European policies in its Member States and four accession countries. Focusing on the deepening and widening of the EU as their major topic, researchers from established research institutes write reports on their respective countries replying to event-driven questionnaires.
For each issue of the EU-27 Watch a comparative introduction giving an overview on the content of the respective issue and the questionnaire is available. In addition to the individual issues of EU-27 Watch a comparative analysis reflecting their findings is available in PDF format.
Also the predecessor of the EU-27 Watch, the Enlargement/ Agenda 2000-Watch, published between 1998 und 2003 is available.
Moreover, the EU-27 Watch timeline reflects all major events since the EU-Enlargement in 2004. Therefore it not only focuses on the EU-level, but concentrates on major events in the Member States and accession countries alike. Consequently the timeline offers a comprehensive overview of European integration over time and space.
The EU-27 Watch receives significant funding from the Otto Wolff-Foundation, Cologne, in the framework of the “Dialog Europa der Otto Wolff-Stiftung”, and is financially supported by the European Commission (initially in the framework of the network of excellence EU-CONSENT). The European Commission is not responsible for any use that may be made of the information contained therein.
