EU article by DIIS researcher one of the five most important
European Commission President Barroso to read and reflect on the work of DIIS Senior Researcher
The result of an open poll of EU academics across the world was announced last week at the European Union Studies Association conference in Montreal. All academic and research specialists on the EU were asked to vote for the five pieces of academic work, published in the past ten years, that they considered the most important, essential, seminal.
‘Normative Power Europe: a contradiction in terms?’ written by Ian Manners, DIIS Senior Researcher and Head of the EU Internal Dynamics unit, was among the five pieces voted for. The article was published in the Journal of Common Market Studies in 2002 and has already received the annual prize for the best article published in this leading EU journal.
The other four pieces were by Princeton Professor Andrew Moravcsik, University of North Carolina Professors Gary Marks and Liesbet Hooghe, Temple Professor Mark Pollack, and Professor Fritz Scharpf (Director of the Max Planck Institute).
The five pieces will now be read by European Commission President José Manuel Barroso, himself a former academic, with his reflections being published in the four main EU research forums (EUSA Review, UACES News, European Political Science, and EU-Consent website) in autumn 2007.
