EIPA Papers

EIPA’s publications address key issues for public management, EU governance and EU law and form an integral part of the institute’s services. They are written either by EIPA’s own scientific staff or by one of our network of external experts. They draw on the insights obtained when EIPA staff deliver activities in the EU institutions or Member State’s administration and on the exchanges of national public-sector practices that we organise, as well as our participation in the European scientific and policy community.

EIPA Briefings
Offer concise insights into current topics. They help understand what kinds of challenges can be expected, and what kinds of response can be envisaged.

EIPA Papers
Address matters in greater depth and aim to contribute to policy debate.

EIPA is also commissioned to produce studies and reports, usually of a comparative nature, and conducts its own applied research projects. The results of these activities can also be found here, as well as links to other publications of EIPA experts.
