The EU Policy Agendas Project studies attention to policy issues in the European Union and its institutions. What issues feature on the EU agenda at specific points in time? How does the definition of issues change? What factors drive the formation of EU priorities? How does the EU address policy problems?
The EU Policy Agendas Project is an international collaboration between researchers interested in these questions. To analyse agenda-setting processes in the EU we develop systematic indicators of policy attention in its institutions. We build on the techniques developed by the Policy Agendas Project and the Comparative Agendas Project to compile large datasets of such activities. Our data allow reliable comparison across policy topics, time, institutions, as well as cross-countries comparisons with other political systems studied by the Comparative Agendas Project. We also conduct more in-depth analyses on speecific policy themes.
