What is EDAP?

EDAP is an e-journal in the field of European integration research. It aims to contribute to the theoretical development and empirical exploration of various approaches to the growing diversity in the European Union, including ethnic, cultural, linguistic, regional, institutional and structural diversity. Regionalism, federalism, minority protection, multiculturalism and more generally, "constitutional flexibility", are therefore core topics that underpin EDAP's focus. EDAP explores on diversity primarily from the perspective of national constitutional law and EU law. Nevertheless, contributions from other disciplines such as political science and economics are also welcome.

EDAP is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access. Read more about our copyright and licensing policy.

Who stands behind EDAP?

EDAP is published by two research institutes situated at the European Academy in Bolzano: the Institute for Minority Rights and the Institute for Studies on Federalism and Regionalism.
