L. v. Heumen & M. Roos (eds.), The Informal Construction of Europe, Routledge, 2019.

M. Roos & L. v. Heumen, 'Introduction'.
M. Roos, with C. Neuhold, 'Studying the Informal in European Integration: a Research Guide'.

Informal dimensions of European integration have received limited academic attention to date, despite their historical and contemporary importance. Particularly studies in European integration history, while frequently mentioning informal processes, have as yet rarely conceptualised the study of informality in European integration, and thus fail usually to systematically analyse conditions, impact and consequences of informal action.
Including case studies that discuss both successful and failed examples of informal action in European integration, this book assembles cutting-edge research by both early-career and more experienced scholars from all over Europe to fill this lacuna.
