European and International Politics


We work on describing various aspects of the shifting boundaries between the realms of international, European and domestic politics as well as the corresponding shift of the borders between the principles of majoritarian democracy and the rule of law. The analysis of the interlinkage between both processes describes the core of our empirical research interests. The chair is also strongly interested in normative issues. We enquire into the ways in which European and international governance practices are legitimated and how these strategies can be justified. Recent books summarising these efforts are "The Justification of Europe. A Political Theory of Supranational Integration", Oxford University Press (2012), "Globale Demokratie. Eine zeitgemäße Einführung in die Internationalen Beziehungen", Nomos (2013) and "Grenzen der Integration. Herausforderungen für Recht und Politik" (edited together with Franz Mayer and Claudio Franzius), Nomos (2014).
