    Radaelli, Claudio M. (2006-10)

  • Europeanisation: solution or problem? 

    Radaelli, Claudio M. (ECSA-Austria, 2004-10-06)

    Radaelli, Claudio M.; Kraemer, Ulrike S. (Blackwell Publishing, 2008-03)

  • Learning in the European Union: Theoretical Lenses and Meta-Theory 

    Radaelli, Claudio M.; Dunlop, Claire A. (Taylor & Francis, 2013)
    The European Union may well be a learning organization, yet there is still confusion about the nature of learning, its causal structure and the normative implications. In this article we select four perspectives that address ...

    Dunlop, Claire A.; Maggetti, Martino; Radaelli, Claudio M.; Russel, Duncan (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012-01)

  • Systematizing Policy Learning: From Monolith to Dimensions 

    Dunlop, Claire A.; Radaelli, Claudio M. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013-12-01)
    The field of policy learning is characterised by concept stretching and lack of systematic findings. To systematize them, we combine the classic Sartorian approach to classification with the more recent insights on explanatory ...
  • Towards better research on better regulation 

    Radaelli, Claudio M. (2007-01)
    Academic research on better regulation carried out in Europe tends to be narrow in scope and to neglect the political properties of this emerging policy. This state of affairs chimes with the technical, de-contextualised ...
