EU Agendas projects are currently carried out in The Netherlands, Germany, Malta and France.
Projects in Progress:
- European Council Conclusions (Coordinator: Petya Alexandrova | Project members: Marcello Carammia, Sebastiaan Princen and Arco Timmermans)
The project involved content coding of all documents produced since the establishment of the European Council. The texts were coded on a quasi-sentence level using the EU policy agendas codebook, resulting in a dataset of over 43,000 coded statements. The initial dataset covered the period 1975-2012, and was later expanded to the end of 2014. It is available at the Data section of this website.
- Environment, health and agriculture in the policy agendas of the European Commission and European Parliament (Sebastiaan Princen)
The project involved the coding of Commission “COM documents” and written questions of the European Parliament in the period 1975-2005. Sebastiaan Princen has used these data to address empirical and theoretical questions about agenda-setting processes in the EU in a number of journal articles and in a book.
- The EU migration agenda (Marcello Carammia)
The project involved the coding of migration-related documents of the main EU institutions – the European Council; Council of Ministers (Justice and Home Affairs, Employment and Social Affairs, General Affairs and External Relations); European Commission; European Parliament – as well as migration policy outputs in the period 1975-2010. This project will result in a book (under contract with Palgrave Macmillan).
