JMF Ian Cooper wins research award
Ian Cooper, Jean Monnet Fellow at the RSCAS, has been awarded the PADEMIA Award for Outstanding Research on Parliamentary Democracy in Europe for his article ‘A yellow card for the striker: national parliaments and the defeat of EU legislation on the right to strike’, published in the Journal of European Public Policy.
Dr. Cooper’s paper received the prize for the significance of its topic and its theoretical, methodological, and empirical merits. It was commended as an ‘exemplary demonstration to those who work on other aspects of European integration of the importance of also studying the parliamentary politics of the Union’.
This year Professor Cooper is affiliated with the Global Governance Programme of the RSCAS, pursuing work related to democracy and constitutionalism in the European Union, with a particular focus on the role of national parliaments.
