The Innsbruck Center for European Research (ICER), housed within the Department for Political Science at the University of Innsbruck, brings together research and university teaching facilities on European integration and European Union studies. ICER aims to strengthen the critical and multidisciplinary analysis of the EU, examine the EU’s frameworks for poly-archic, multi-level and –actor governance, provide a forum to stimulate the development of innovative analytical tools and teaching resources, increase the accessibility of information sources on the EU, and to stimulate the debate and research on the EU. The Center is an integral part of Innsbruck University’s Research Center “Governance and Civil Society”, and cooperates with the Research Centers “Föderalismus – Politik und Recht” and the Research Cluster “Alpiner Raum - Mensch und Umwelt“.
Research carried out by ICER focuses on three core subjects:
Decision-making processes, negotiation strategies and conceptual problems regarding the implementation of EU policies
Policy preferences of state and civil-society actors in the EU member states
