About the Author

Herman Lelieveldt is Associate Professor of Political Science at Utrecht University, University College Roosevelt. Sebastiaan Princen is Professor of Governance and Policymaking in the European Union at Utrecht University, Utrecht School of Governance.


Review of previous edition: 'In a world of either overly empirical or overly complex EU textbooks, Lelieveldt and Princen strike an excellent balance in writing a theoretically informed, empirically accurate, and highly accessible introduction to the politics of the EU.'
