Government and Governance in the EU

About us​

EUGOV was founded in 2003 as a research group targeting the relevance and specialization of EU government and governance. It recognizes the significance of research and cooperation to analyze and develop science and policy that addresses European integration theory, EU institutional and decision-making, EU policy-making, EU democratic quality, European comparative studies and multi-level governance.

The EUGOV group has established itself as a leader in EU studies in Spain, with the Generalitat of Catalunya recognizing it as a Consolidated Group from 2009 to present.

Its principal expertise includes those themes related to:

  • EU institutional dynamics and decision-making
  • Power, democracy and legitimacy in the EU
  • European policies
  • Theories of European integration
  • Europeanisation
  • European Public Administration

Given the nature of its work, its scope includes not only the European Union but comparative studies of European countries and some third countries. It particularly thrives on the collective collaboration of faculty, doctoral candidates, postgraduate and undergraduate students, as well as affiliated scholars from across Spain and the rest of Europe.
