Research fields of the programme

The European Administrative Space programme focuses on the institutional and material prerequisites for political and administrative leeway in the member states of the European Union, both

  • from the member states’ perspective (enforcement of national policy preferences while preserving those national legal and administrative cultures that are worth preserving)


  • from that of the European Union (ensuring effective and uniform implementation of Union law within the European Administrative Space).
