I am interested in topics to do with democracy in the EU and with European integration. In my recent empirical research, I have Iooked at different forms of non-electoral forms of political representation, on the one hand, and the norms that can – or should – be underlying the institutional design of representative institutions in the EU, on the other (see my newest publication from this research strand at the upper link below). An on-going focus of my research is the role national parliaments can and should have in EU policy-making, and which institutional design can support the continued politicization of EU affairs in domestic arenas. I am increasingly interested in the topics of Euroscepticism and differentiated integration - see my newest publication on this at the lower link below. Earlier research focused on the Open Method of Coordination (OMC), and particularly the governance architecture of the OMC inclusion and its application in France, Germany and at the EU-level.
