CERiM Online Paper Series

The CERiM Online Paper Series publishes new research and promotes interdisciplinary academic debate on a wide range of topics in European affairs.

To this end, we welcome submissions of work in progress from both scholars and practitioners, and we encourage PhD candidates and young researchers in particular to submit papers arising from their research.

All submissions need to follow the CERiM Working Paper Style Guide of the series and be written in English at a publishable level. Papers should be between 5.000 to 10.000 words in length (including notes and references) and will be subject to an internal (i.e. referees are from the Faculty of Law or the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences) double-blind peer review. Both in-text references and footnotes are accepted. If you opt for in-text references, please follow the Harvard style available here. If you opt for footnotes, please follow the OSCOLA style available here.

Accepted papers will be published on the CERiM website, and the publication will be announced through various channels. Authors will receive the PDF file of the published paper and are encouraged to circulate their paper widely. The possibility to remove previously published working papers from this website at a later stage in the view of journal publication will be made available upon request to the editors.


The editors welcome informal enquiries and paper submissions. Please contact us at: cerimwp@maastrichtuniversity.nl


Editors: Thomas Christiansen and Diane Fromage
