Multilevel Governance in Regional Integration Groups

Student: Anatolie Cecalenco

Supervisor: Irina Busygina

Faculty: Saint-Petersburg School of Social Sciences and Area Studies

Educational Programme: Political Science (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2018

The study is devoted to the study of multilevel governance in the European Union as a process that will be considered on the example of sanctions against Russia. The author finds the security factor as the reason for the sanctions. Having built a linear regression of EU exports after sanctions with the help, the author asks why rational political actors at such economic costs make an unprofitable decision. By conducting social surveys of EU citizens there is a hypothesis that the economic benefits are lower in the priorities of the interests of security. In order to test the hypothesis that the political actors were guided by the idea of security when adopting sanctions, we analyzed the EU normative documents. The hypothesis was confirmed during the study.
