Separation of powers for 21st century Europe (SepaRope)

SepaRope is an empirically-grounded and comparative project that addresses the theory and practices of separation of powers in the present-day European Union. The project demonstrates how recent economic and political developments affect the EU’s institutional framework and the anchoring of EU decision-making in national legitimacy by combining conceptual analysis and empirical research.
