Cognitive Regimes and Policy Networks in the European Union

Participant: Dr. Alexander Sherstobitov (Faculty of Political Science, St. Petersburg State University)

Within the framework of the project the problems of policy networks and their interdependency with the transformation of public policy mechanisms are studied. The changes in interaction between state actors, business institutions and civil society should be defined through the application of network approach to outline the emergency of the policy networks in different spheres in the European Union.

The project is connected with research stays at Bielefeld University and is aimed to result in a CGES Working Paper in 2012.
