However, this is not simply a critique of the myriad ways in which academics’ “performance” is now constantly audited and monitored in a way that limits their freedom to perform their proper function, but also a much-needed call to arms.’ – Julian Petley, Brunel University London, UK Nov 2022 c 416 pp Hardback 978 1 78897 590 2 £165.00 / $235.00 eBook • Elgaronline EU Policymaking at a Crossroads Negotiating the 2021–2027 Budget Edited by Sybille Münch, Stiftung Universität Hildesheim and Leuphana University and Hubert Heinelt, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany ‘Budget negotiations are often considered to be mostly rational and interest-based processes. Negotiations about the EU Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) in particular tend to be analysed as classical domains of fierce intergovernmental bargaining between EU member states. This edited volume goes beyond the rationalist assumptions and zooms onto the “struggle over ideas”. By introducing an interpretive approach to the study of policymaking, this excellent collection makes an essential contribution to research on EU integration. With its focus on meaning as manifest in persuasion and justification, the book provides insights into the politicization and polarization encountered in different policy areas at a point in time, when the EU was, once again, considered to be “at a crossroads”.’ – Frank Nullmeier, Bremen University, Germany Dec 2022 c 296 pp Hardback 978 1 78897 764 7 c £105.00 / c $150.00 eBook • Elgaronline New Horizons in European Politics series Handbook of International Climate Finance Edited by Axel Michaelowa, University of Zurich, Switzerland and Perspectives Climate Research, Germany and AnneKathrin Sacherer, Perspectives Climate Research, Germany ‘Strategic investments are key for successful long term mitigation and adaptation policy.
