Money Matters in Migration

Money Matters in Migration (co-ed 2021). Eighteen chapters expose hidden and sometimes contradictory policy objectives, unwanted consequences, and inconsistent regulatory structures of migration, participation, and citizenship.

Sixty-Five 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.

Multilevel Citizenship book cover

Multilevel 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.

Democratic Citizenship and the Free Movement of People book cover

Democratic 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.

Creating European Citizens book cover

Creating European 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.
