Years of European Governance (co-ed 2016) eleven
articles demonstrate the creative and often fragile solutions
found to address the challenges facing Europe by analyzing
transformations in European governance.
Citizenship (ed 2013) disputes the dominant
narrative of citizenship as a homogeneous status bestowed only
by nation-states; it considers overlapping jurisdictions, sub-
or supranational citizenships, and shared governance.
Citizenship and the Free Movement of People (ed
2013) challenges the normal way of thinking about free movement
by identifying barriers and disincentives to free movement,
against citizenship's promise of equality.
Citizens (2007) argues that European integration
involves not only economic cooperation but also a political
project of transcending borders and building a European
community of people.
