Explaining European Union Decision-Making: Insights from the Natural and Social Sciences (EUDINS)
How do processes of coalition-formation influence patterns of decision-making in the European Union?
This part of the EUDINS Theme Group project focuses on coalition-formation in processes of political decision-making. Empirically, insights from the ‘Decision-making in the European Union Before and After Lisbon’ (DEUBAL) project and other data sources will be used to implement models focused on decision-making as they have been presented in the context of the analysis of the European Union (EU). Among these models are studies focusing on how actors form specific coalitions, how such coalitions may be affected by changes in actor preferences or political party affiliations and effects of such changes on decision-outcomes. This individual project will build on earlier research in this tradition, both in terms of coalition-formation more generally and studies focused on the EU, and implement models of coalition-formation in practice.
