 A Conversant Research Agenda

Show Summary Details

Preview

This conclusion draws together the discussion and results presented in the foregoing chapters. It has three sections. The first, ‘Europeanization: Fad, Political Concern, or New Research Agenda?’, shows that the contributions to the book attest to Europeanization as a possible new research agenda. The second, ‘The Contours of Europeanization’, looks at the substantive results of the earlier chapters in terms of mapping out the process of Europeanization. The third, ‘Developing a Conversant Research Agenda’ looks beyond the book to examine how Europeanization can develop as a pluralist and conversant research agenda, outlining four areas where this seems feasible and fruitful: comparative politics; international political economy, theoretical policy analysis, and systemic change.

Keywords: Europeanization; research; research agenda
