 Brief description of your activity focus
Aspects and problems of European integration

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Taken together, my research activities to date constitute an entity whose thematic framework is primarily defined by specific aspects of the process of European integration and enlargement and questions related to them. The empirical research I conducted within this field consists of observation and analysis of processes of change in southeast European countries like Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Czech Republic and Hungary as well as of how the political and social structures of those countries are integrated into the wider European context. Special attention is paid to comparative analysis given the fact that so-called “central” European countries like Germany and the United Kingdom as well as non-European countries like the USA and Japan are also considered in my research. Practical skills refer to applied qualitative methods on the basis of the content analysis software Atlas-ti.
