Policy-Making in the European Union

Posted December 3, 2020

Alasdair Young, a professor and co-director of the Center for European and Transatlantic Studies and the Center for International Strategy, Technology and Policy in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, has a new edited textbook entitled Policy-Making in the European Union published by Oxford University Press. The 8th edition was co-edited with Mark Pollack (Temple), Christilla Roederer-Rynning (Southern Denmark) and Helen Wallace (Sussex).

The textbook: 

  • Gives students a solid grounding in theories and empirics of EU policy-making
  • Details the processes and institutions central to EU policy-making
  • Analyses a wide range of policy areas in greater detail than any competing text, considering substantive material in both a practical and theoretical context
  • Concludes with a clear assessment of the challenges that have shaped and will continue to shape policy-making, including the politicization of the EU, Brexit, and geopolitical shifts

Young contributed five chapters two of which he was the sole-author and three were co-authored. Nunn School alumna Elizabeth Osman provided invaluable editorial assistance.
