Comparative European Politics
Editors: Colin Hay, Ben Rosamond, Martin A. Schain
Review essays editor: David Bailey
Comparative European Politics (CEP) arises out of a unique editorial partnership linking political scientists in Europe and North America. The editors are Colin Hay (University of Sheffield), Ben Rosamond (University of Warwick), Martin A. Schain (New York University), and the review essays editor is David Bailey (University of Birmingham). CEP defines its scope broadly to include the comparative politics and political economy of the whole of contemporary Europe within and beyond the European Union, the processes of European integration and enlargement and the place of Europe and European states within international / global political and economic dynamics.
The journal is rigorously peer-reviewed. It neither reflects nor represents any particular school or approach, nor does it restrict itself to particular methodologies or theoretical perspectives. Rather, whilst promoting interdisciplinarity and a greater dialogue between the various sub-disciplines of European political analysis, Comparative European Politics publishes the best and most original work in the field. It publishes substantial articles marking either core empirical developments, theoretical innovation or, preferably, both. The journal particularly encourages pieces which seek to develop the link between substantive empirical investigations and theoretical elaboration and those which transcend the artificial separation of domestic, comparative and international analysis. The editors also publish a limited number of review symposia and review articles related to issues of contemporary theoretical and empirical controversy, edited by review essays editor David Bailey (POLSIS, University of Birmingham).
