Alumnus Matthieu Liethaert (SPS 2003 – 2009) won the Best TV press documentary award 2013 in Belgium for his film “The Brussels Business”. The film, which grew out of his EUI thesis, deals with the interconnections between EU decision making and lobbying and thus dives into the grey zone underneath European democracy.
Congratulations to Poul F. Kjaer (Law 2004 – 2008), professor at the Department of Business and Politics, Copenhagen Business School, who has just published the book Constitutionalism in the Global Realm: A Sociological Approach (London: Routledge, 2014).
