Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on Europeanization research. ‘Europeanization’ generally refers to the impact of the EU on nation states. The study of Europeanization has grown strongly, especially through a wider focus on the EU's impact outside its membership. Still, it remains a diverse research area due to the broad range of issues on which the EU has an impact across policies, politics, and polity. As a research agenda, it is most cohesive with regard to issue areas where the EU explicitly demands adjustments from member states or non-member states. This is primarily the case in the policy dimension, where studies can draw on a common analytical framework that draws on rationalist institutionalist and constructivist institutionalist approaches from international relations and comparative politics.

Keywords: EU studies, Europeanization research, nation states
