Beskrivelse

The research group on the dynamics of the European political order is based at ARENA Centre for European Studies, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Oslo. The research group is headed by Professor Erik O. Eriksen. The group is internationally recognised as an important research community engaged in the exploration of the processes of political change in Europe, conducting theoretically founded, cross-disciplinary and innovative research. The research group’s main research areas include: legitimacy and democracy in the European political order, organizational and institutional developments, constitutionalism, media, civil society and the public sphere, gender democracy and foreign and security policies. External funding from highly competitive funding programmes of the Research Council of Norway and research funding programmes of the European Union (Horizon 2020 including Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, and Erasmus+) makes up more than two thirds of the group’s funding. The research group holds an ambitious strategy for scientific publication, with a strong track record of publishing with internationally renowned publishing houses and in high-impact, peer-reviewed academic journals, and also actively engages in knowledge exchange outside academia.
