Key Projects

RENFORCE’s central research question is being dealt with in a number of subprojects. First of all, two bigger projects, the Core Values project and the Mix Enforcement project, have been developed and are completely being carried out by researchers of the research group. Additionally, a number of smaller projects with more specific research questions have been initiated. These so-called Key Projects are focused on special forms of regulation and enforcement (mutual recognition), the role of specific actors within this regulation and enforcement (EU agencies and private actors) and on the external effects of EU-regulation. More information on the content and progress of these projects can be found on this page.
