Spatial Models of European Union Politics

P. Vangerven and C. Crombez

Review of Business and Economic Literature, 2012, vol. 57, issue 4, 282-304

Abstract: This paper presents an overview of the literature on spatial models of European Union (EU) politics. We discuss the early theoretical literature from the 1990s as well as more recent models. The early models focused on the legislative procedures in the EU, whereas later models analyze specific aspects of EU politics or pecific procedures. We further present a comprehensive overview of the empirical literature that was stimulated by the spatial theory literature. We conclude that spatial modeling has proven to be an important tool to study EU politics, since it yields clear and understandable conclusions and creates opportunities for empirical research.
