Does Cohabitation Matter? French European Policy-Making in the Context of Divided Government
The dissertation analyses French European policy-making in the context of divided government (cohabitation). Firstly, it compares how during the Fifth Republic’s three cohabitations (1986-1988, 1993-1995, 1997-2002) European policy-making was organised. Furthermore, it explores how the particular actor constellation of cohabitation influenced and modified French European policies.
