This research guide is meant to provide you with an introduction to the resources that are available to conduct research on the European Union. Most research guides available tend to focus on the legal aspects of the EU. Here, we have tried to provide information from more fields of knowledge as well as links to interdisciplinary documents.
We hope it will help you in writing blogs, researching the themes of our strategy groups and for reacting on EU policy proposals.
