Editorial Reviews

'Those researching the EU are confronted with a bewildering menu of epistemologies, methodologies, research designs, and methods of data collection and analysis. In this very welcome volume, seasoned EU scholars unlock these bodies of knowledge and tailor them to the specific needs of 'their' sub-fields. The volume is a must read for all who seek to find more convincing answers to their research questions. And who does not?' – Markus Haverland, Professor of Political Science, Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands'This volume will serve as an extremely useful compendium of methodological issues and options for both budding scholars and established experts on the EU. To get a strong, comprehensive view of where research methods in EU studies stand today, start here.' – Craig Parsons, Professor of Political Science and Director of European Studies, University of Oregon, USA   'This book is a must-read for any student and scholar working on European integration. Research methods and design in EU studies have, at best, been implicitly dealt with by individual scholars struggling through the maze of publications. The editors of this collective volume have brought together a stellar group of experts who provide highly instructive insights into the full range of methodologies associated with problem-driven research in EU studies. This excellent volume fills a huge gap in the literature.'–Sabine Saurugger, Professor of Political Science, Sciences Po Grenoble, France
