Research Methods in European Union Studies

(2015)
Abstract
This collection sets a new agenda for conducting research on the European Union (EU) and learns from past mistakes. In doing so it provides a state-of-the-art examination of social science research designs in EU studies while providing innovative guidelines for the advancement of more inclusive and empirically sensitive research designs in EU studies.

The argument of this book is therefore that research strategies, designs
and methods from across the social sciences can, and should, be applied in
research directed at EU affairs. Against this backdrop, the purpose of this
volume is threefold:
• to provide a state-of-the-art examination of social science research designs

This collection sets a new agenda for conducting research on the European Union (EU) and learns from past mistakes. In doing so it provides a state-of-the-art examination of social science research designs in EU studies while providing innovative guidelines for the advancement of more inclusive and empirically sensitive research designs in EU studies.

The argument of this book is therefore that research strategies, designs
and methods from across the social sciences can, and should, be applied in
research directed at EU affairs. Against this backdrop, the purpose of this
volume is threefold:
• to provide a state-of-the-art examination of social science research designs
in EU studies;
• to provide innovative guidelines for the advancement of research designs
in EU studies;
• to move the study of EU research beyond the dichotomies of the past
towards a new agenda for research on Europe.

Research methodology is understood as a concern with research strategies,
designs and methods. The focus is thus on the principles and procedures
guiding research designs and on the research techniques used for specific
research purposes. This volume essentially addresses the ‘how to study . . . ’
questions in EU studies. The questions asked are: how do we conduct
research into EU affairs? How can the broader social sciences contribute to
the advancement of research designs in EU studies? And how can we move
beyond the traditional research dichotomies in EU studies? (Less)
