JOURNAL OF EUROPEAN PUBLIC POLICY BEST ARTICLE AWARD
Together with Florian Stoeckel, I received an award for the best article published in Journal of European Public Policy in 2014, for our article ‘When European integration becomes costly: the euro crisis and public support for European economic governance’, JEPP 21(4): 624-64.
Statement of the committee:
“We looked for papers that stood out in terms of theoretical and methodological sophistication and that made an original and significant contribution to the field. The article by Theresa Kuhn and Florian Stoeckel fitted all these criteria. In it, they analyse support among citizens for further economic integration in the European Union, an issue that has become highly relevant following the global financial crisis. On the basis of a careful analysis, they show that support for further economic integration is determined by a different set of factors than support for the EU in general. This finding has important implications for our understanding of public support for European integration.
In short, the article makes a convincing, original and important argument about one of the key issues of European public policy today. It therefore justly deserves to win JEPP’s 2014 best article award.”
As JEPP Editors, we congratulate Theresa Kuhn and Florian Stoeckel on winning the JEPP prize for 2015.
