The research group on European Union Governance works on topics related to EU institutions, processes and policies. This group benefited from its double membership in the department and in the University Institute for European Studies which was the centre of EU research at UAB until 2012. Research is dedicated to both EU politics and policy, particularly to Europeanization and EU specific policies like environment or energy. 


Researchers from this group are recognized as Research Group by the Catalan Government (SGR – AGAUR, 2009-2013).

  • The transformations of cross-border governance: North America and Europe in comparative perspective
    The central question of this project (National Research Council of Canada) is the transformations of cross-border governance so that cross-border public policy can be effectively designed and implemented. The study is a comparative analysis of cross-border governance in North America and Europe since 1990. Eight specific cross-border regions are examined: in North America, San Diego-Tijuana, the Texas-Mexico border, Cascadia, and the Quebec-US North-East region; in Europe, the Galicia-North of Portugal Euroregion, the Pyrenees area, the Rhineland Valley, and the Euregio.

  • Innovating Heritage” – INHERIT - Developing new practices and tools of participatory citizenship in Europe”
    This project (European Commission) aims to build an original, open and inclusive space for discussion on European citizenship, common values, history, culture and democracy among actors of civil society and citizens at large. The project is developing an innovative technological tool of crowd-sourcing called “Pan-Speech” and workshops, conferences and public debates. It is expected that this initiative will encourage interaction, dialogue and exchanges on issues related to cultural and environmental heritage, not only among the participating universities but also with citizens from civil society organizations and institutions at the local, national, and European level.
