New paper (with Mark Hallerberg) published at JCMS. We examine the determinants of the Council of Ministers's editing of the European Commission recommendations to Member States after the introduction of the European Semester in the period 2011–18. Unlike previous work, we find little evidence of a systematic relationship between euroscepticism and textual editing.
The program provides an introduction to the most recent developments in quantitative textual analysis and with a particular focus on linking applications with theory. Free participation, subject to conditions, 14 June to 25 June 2021 on an online platform. See the program here
