The Antwerp Consortium on the Organization of Rulemaking and Multi-level Governance in Europe (ACTORE)

The University of Antwerp is a research university hosting several groups with research agendas in EU studies. The Antwerp Consortium on the Organization of Rulemaking and Multi-level Governance in Europe (ACTORE) is the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence of the University of Antwerp. ACTORE brings together scholars from 3 research groups: law (G&L), public administration (PA&M) and political science (ACIM), with multidisciplinary expertise in multi-level and multi-actor organization of the EU.

  • ACIMs main focus of study is the impact of multi-level institutional configurations on changes in government and governance, policies and politics, and state-society relations. ACIM’s research projects are linked to the politics of multi-level government, the politics of interest representation, and regulatory and judicial politics, all in an EU context. The Antwerp Centre for Institutions and Multilevel Politics continuously hosts ca. 10 PhD students and post-docs. The group receives funding from various national and European research councils and government bodies and engages in outreach with stakeholders and practitioners.
  • PA&M (Public Administration & Management) studies public administration and management with a focus on law, regulation and administration; indicator-based governance, performance and accountability; and multiactor and multi-level governance and coordination of public tasks and policies (incl. autonomy/independence). The impact of and interrelation with EU as administrative and political layer is crucial in these research lines. The group involves 15 PhD researchers, 4 postdocs and three professors and draws research grants from the Flemish Research Foundation, the Antwerp University Research foundation, the BRAINS research program of the federal government, EU H2020, and commissioned research by governments. The group takes various initiatives to interact with practitioners (mainly civil servants and policy-makers), at different levels of government.
  • G&L (Government & Law) examines fundamental questions raised by the exercise of authority in a context of EU multilevel governance: the functioning of public agents and non-state actors, questions of legitimacy and accountability, rule of law, and fundamental rights. G&L consists of 10 professors and over 30 PhD students and postdocs. G&L’s research projects are linked to EU multilevel good governance, EU governance and public decision making and governance in diverse societies
