This report edited by Antonio Zotti looks at the legal frameworks underlying the immigration policies of six Schengen countries in order to grasp how different traditions, practices and priorities cooperate and diverge within the emerging EU Migration System of Governance.

In this report, Lea Augenstein investigates the concept of global justice as mutual recognition from a postcolonial perspective, and argues that recognising others is never a neutral or unbiased process and is therefore insufficient in bringing about the justice it promises. 

In this report, Joachim Vigrestad identifies the institutional structure of EU's trade and sustainable development chapters and asks what principles of global political justice the EU is applying when promoting its trade and sustainable development agenda. 

In this report, Eilev Hegstad analyses expert advice in decision-making dealing with ethical questions through a study of the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies' work in the field of animal cloning for food supply.

In this report (in Swedish), Linn Tomasdotter analyses the interaction between the regional and European level in the implementation of 'smart specialisation', an EU strategy for science and innovation at the regional level.

In this report, John Todd analyses how the British discourse on Europe has evolved over the past forty years, culminating with Cameron's commitment to hold a referendum on EU membership should his part win the upcoming general election in May.

Cathrine Holst is the editor of a new ARENA report on Expertise and Democracy. The report is based on the kick-off conference of the EPISTO project, which took place in Oslo last spring.
