EU Differentiation, Dominance and Democracy (EU3D)

EU3D is a research project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme (Grant Agreement no, 822419). Over the course of four years (2019-2023), EU3D will examine the increasingly differentiated European political order, and explore how much and what type of differentiation is sustainable and legitimate in Europe
