ACIM’s research projects are concentrated in three major research lines:
- The politics of multi-level government
- The politics of interest representation
- Regulatory and judicial politics
It is important to point out that, although the research lines are clearly distinct from each other, there are clear synergies and overlaps. For instance, all research projects on regulatory and judicial politics concentrate on the role interest groups play in regulatory governance. Similarly, research on multi-level government usually includes non-governmental actors such as political parties or interest groups. These synergies are relevant as they will stimulate future collaborative research.
