The project is underway

Last Friday, I met with Christina to iron out the last few planning details for our project. We’ve made excellent progress so far. We have three wonderful post-docs and we are getting ready to start the preliminary phase of the project. This will involve gathering background information on our three case studies (France, Germany and the UK), and preparing bibliographies.

We are always looking for suggestions of up-to-date scholarly literature on state monitoring practices and state rationalities. If you think there is something we might have missed, please let us know!

Come back soon for more!
