Projects per year
My research has focused primarily on the internal politics of the European Union, and particularly on the European Commission. I have been especially interested in the politics of reform within the EU, and on issues of organisational and administrative culture. I have increasingly been drawn to research on issues of ethics and integrity. More specifically I have recently been working on a project that looks at how the EU institutions are embedding notions of good (ethical) governance within their structures and procedures during processes of reform. This is being done in order to counter some of the recent criticisms of corruption, mismanagement and fraud that have plagued the European institutions. I am now applying these insights (with Dr N. Perez-Solorzano) to the case of EU lobbying regulation. I have also conducted research on EU public policy, particularly on competition and state aid policy, and on environmental policy.
