L’ouvrage s’intéresse au processus de socialisation politique tel qu’il s’observe au Parlement européen. Son objectif est de confirmer ou d’infirmer cet impact sur les députés européens, c’est-à-dire sur des hommes politiques sélectionnés d’abord par les partis politiques nationaux et ensuite élus par les citoyens européens lors des élections européennes directes. Ce processus de socialisation politique intervient-il vraiment dans une institution supranationale ? Que recouvre-t-il exactement ? Dans quelles circonstances et de quelle façon produit-il des effets ? Cet ouvrage s’appuie sur un abondant matériel empirique : - entretiens semi-directifs, - votes, - interventions en sessions plénières, - questions parlementaires posées à la Commission européenne ou au Conseil de l’Union européenne, - observations directes pendant les sessions plénières et les autres réunions parlementaires. Il apparaît que la socialisation politique des députés européens au Parlement européen n’est pas un processus très fort. Il est, en effet, impossible de conclure sans équivoque que ces hommes politiques finissent par acquérir l’ensemble des « spécificités » euro-parlementaires, notamment les attitudes et le comportement pro-européens, tout au moins pendant leur première expérience quinquennale.

The Europeanisation of interest groups has been the subject of a substantial academic literature. Yet, multi-level venue shopping has stirred relatively little attention and the cognitive dimension of actors’ Europeanisation has remained largely untouched. This research project addresses these shortcomings by exploring the degree to which business organisations and labour unions deploy their activities at the level of the European Union (i.e. ‘strategic Europeanisation’) and the causal effects of European integration on interest organisations’ shift of perception (i.e. ‘cognitive Europeanisation). This dual perspective is applied to the study of German, French, and Luxembourgish actors’ behaviours in the case of the Blue Card Directive policy-making process. Results on ‘strategic Europeanisation’ reveal a high inclination of German actors to resort to multi-level lobbying in the Blue Card Directive policy-making process and a conversely low propensity of their French counterparts to activate the supranational arena. Luxembourgish stakeholders show very little drive to activate their EU-level lobbying channels. Specific findings point to the importance of financial resources and actors’ domestic embeddedness when deciding whether to make use of Europe, although in contrasted ways. As regards ‘cognitive Europeanisation’, the study shows that the European Union did not shape actors’ shift of perception on labour immigration across the three countries under examination. [less ▲]

With the gradual consolidation of European foreign policy structures and the intensification of multi-level interactions in that area, Europeanisation has become a pregnant reality for non-EU Europe in general and Serbia and Macedonia in particular. What Europeanisation is, what it entails and how it proceeds remain yet subject to controversies. This thesis is a contribution to the academic debate. It explores how the national foreign policy of Serbia and Macedonia has been transformed over years, and uses its empirical findings to reflect on the concept, the phenomenon and mechanisms of Europeanisation in non-EU Europe. The thesis adopts an inductive research strategy, combining in its empirical part descriptive and argumentative analyses. It successively identifies a series of changes in Serbia and Macedonia’s foreign policy, which can be attributed to Europeanisation, and examines the underlying structural, dispositional and intentional forces, as well as the factors facilitating and constraining the process. It scrutinises several aspects of Serbia and Macedonia’s foreign policy: convergence in multilateral diplomacy, organisational reforms, resolution of border disputes, inflexions of critical foreign policy positions (Serbia’s Kosovo issue and Macedonia’s naming issue) and harmonisation of national systems of arms export controls. Its findings question the predominant role usually attributed to the EU and the significance of its conditionality policy in the area. They also underline the international and inter-organisational dimension of Europeanisation. These findings suggest that Europeanisation is best conceptualised through governance approaches (as opposed to EU integration approaches), and that it is best defined as “the transformation of political systems based on national governance into systems constituted by actors operating through the prism of European governance”. Europeanisation, as a phenomenon, is found to entail more intersubjectivity, more nodality and more homogeneity across political systems. As a process, it is found to ensue simultaneously from mechanistic, contextual and organismic learning, i.e. respectively, from structural necessities, shared understandings and individual dissatisfaction, depending on specific conditions. These findings shed light on the contribution of Europeanisation to the (trans)formation Europe’s political order. [less ▲]

The paper deals with the Europeanisation of the Lithuanian political parties from 1995 until today. The research question is to evaluate whether the European Union (EU) had an impact on the party system in Lithuania: How did the Lithuanian parties develop contacts with their European counterparts? Do they have one or several visions of the “Return to Europe”? How do they use the EU dimension in the internal arena? Are some parties more “Eurosceptic”? Presenting a framework for the analysis on Europeanisation and party systems, Ladrech (2002) identified five areas: (1) policy/programmatic content, (2) organisation, (3) patterns of party competition, (4) party-government relations, and (5) relations beyond the national party system. This paper focuses on the topics 1 and 5. First, it is explained, how the Lithuanian party system has integrated into the pan-European political parties’ networks. The “traditional” Lithuanian parties, established in the 1990s, have developed deep and stable contacts with their European counterparts. The “new” parties, founded in the beginning of the 2000s, have waited until Lithuania’s EU accession to take position in the European arena. Secondly, the paper analyses the content of the parties’ manifestos on the EU dimension in the pre- and post-accession period. From 2000, most of Lithuanian parties take into consideration the EU as a new environment. Their manifestos present a uniform and consensual vision of the European integration. After 2004, the EU almost disappears from the manifestos prepared for national elections. Lithuanian parties focus on the defense of national interests and seek to Europeanise the energy issue, in order to break Lithuania’s energy dependence towards Russia. All in all, the investigation of these two areas reveals that the EU has a small impact on the Lithuanian party system, mainly because of the strong consensus in the elite on the EU matters.

Europeanization elicits varying responses in collective skill systems, which are still mainly governed in national contexts and determined primarily by collaboration and conflicts within them. This chapter explores the impact of European developments, particularly the European Union (EU), on institutional change in vocational training regimes. The aim is twofold: first, to investigate the impact of the European level on national institutions responsible for skill formation; and second, to explore similar challenges but varying responses to European initiatives of the collective skill systems analyzed in this book. To what extent and in which directions are Europe-wide processes affecting the collective skill systems in Austria, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland? This question is important because these systems share certain characteristics but differ in their institutionalization pathways and the degree to which the influence of the EU has grown in education and training. To answer this question, we investigate the two levels and their interaction in countries in which conflicts over such forms of Europeanization have ensued – Germany and Switzerland – as weIl as those in which consensus has facilitated Europeanization – Austria, Denmark, and the Netherlands.

Is there a causal relationship between the accessions of the neighbor countries Slovenia and Austria to the European Union on the formation and development of sociology as an European scientific discipline? This study in a comparative perspective provides extensive empirical evidence for the institutional dynamics of Europeanization in regard to the social sciences. Results have shown that within an European context, sociology is working under new restrictions but also encounters enabling opportunities. Transnational co-operation of scholars contributes to a stock of knowledge more and more known as European sociology. [less ▲]

The Europeanization of higher education has gained considerable scope and momentum over the past quarter century. Whereas the coordinative Bologna process, with soft governance mechanisms, have facilitated standardization across countries, European Commission funding programs targeted universities more directly. The Erasmus Mundus Joint Degree Programme, as an incentive-based program, epitomizes the dynamics of such European funding management. Notably, it has established expanding university networks across Europe and unique new tertiary degrees that facilitate student mobility. Applying social network analysis to 561 participating universities through several program cycles, we longitudinally examine three key patterns in the program’s development: the expansion of the programme, the consolidation of networks, and the participation of and coordination by central universities in these processes. Program participation increased considerably across cycles, even as established networks were consolidated, largely through re- accreditation of established programs. Moreover, we identify those universities that assume a central position in the inter-organizational structure of this international program. These universities actively facilitate the evolving Europeanization of higher education by strengthening inter-university networks via a signature EU program. [less ▲]

This article deals with the European and American community in Korea between the conclusion of Korea’s first international treaties in the early 1880s and the country’s annexation by the Japanese Empire in 1910. The article starts out by presenting an overview of the community. Concentrated in Seoul and Chemulp’o, the Anglo-Saxon element dominated a community made up of diplomats, foreign experts in the service of the Korean government, merchants and missionaries. Next, the article describes two key characteristics of the European and American residents in Korea. Firstly, they were individuals defining themselves as bourgeois, or middle-class; secondly, the term “translocality” serves to bring together the multiple layers of border-crossing these individuals were involved in – as long-distance migrants between Europe or Northern America and East Asia, as migrants within the East Asian context, and as representatives of different Euro-American nationalities living together in Korea.

The broad aim of biomedical science in the postgenomic era is to link genomic and phenotype information to allow deeper understanding of the processes leading from genomic changes to altered phenotype and disease. The EuroPhenome project (http://www.EuroPhenome.org) is a comprehensive resource for raw and annotated highthroughput phenotyping data arising from projects such as EUMODIC. EUMODIC is gathering data from the EMPReSSslim pipeline (http://www.empress .har.mrc.ac.uk/) which is performed on inbred mouse strains and knock-out lines arising from the EUCOMM project. The EuroPhenome interface allows the user to access the data via the phenotype or genotype. It also allows the user to access the data in a variety of ways, including graphical display, statistical analysis and access to the raw data via web services. The raw phenotyping data captured in EuroPhenome is annotated by an annotation pipeline which automatically identifies statistically different mutants from the appropriate baseline and assigns ontology terms for that specific test. Mutant phenotypes can be quickly identified using two EuroPhenome tools: PhenoMap, a graphical representation of statistically relevant phenotypes, and mining for a mutant using ontology terms. To assist with data definition and cross-database comparisons, phenotype data is annotated using combinations of terms from biological ontologies. [less ▲]
