Abstract
This paper takes a point of departure in the municipality of Copenhagen (two administrations herein) and their participation in Eurocities. The main question is what kind of processes of Europeanization that takes place in the two administrations. Furthermore, it will be discussed what kind of approach they are taking to European cooperation and how their perception and reflection on the matter is.

This paper takes a point of departure in the municipality of Copenhagen (two administrations herein) and their participation in Eurocities. The main question is what kind of processes of Europeanization that takes place in the two administrations. Furthermore, it will be discussed what kind of approach they are taking to European cooperation and how their perception and reflection on the matter is. The theoretical lens are the combination of Radaelli and Dosenrode. Their theories will be discussed and I will come up with a modified version of Europeanization. This is done in order to be able to analyse my empirical context. The developed and elaborated research design will be used in conducting the interviews with the civil servants from the two administrations. The following analysis is done via the developed theoretical indicators. The empirical findings suggest that the two administrations have different approaches to the European cooperation, but they are both active, though one of the administrations is still undergoing a mental process. The two administrations are both on an absorption level of Europeanization and the differences between them are small. (Less)
