KFG Working Paper Series

Otto-Suhr-Institute for Political Science
at the Free University Berlin

The Kolleg-Forschergruppe (KFG) "The Transformative Power of Europe" is an interdisciplinary research college launched by the German Research Foundation in 2008. It examines the role of the EU as promoter and recipient of ideas, analyzing the mechanisms and effects of internal and external diffusion processes in three research areas of "Identity and Public Sphere", "Compliance, Conditionality and Beyond and" "Comparative Regionalism and Europe's External Relations". Since its foundation, the KFG has published a Working Paper series which serves to disseminate the research results of the Kolleg-Forschergruppe to a wide audience, including academia and the general public.

Quality control policy: The reviewing process comprises an internal and an external peer review. For the external review the directors of the KFG identify an independent, external reviewer affiliated with the Research College, who holds expertise or prominence in the pertinent subject area. An anonymous, double-blind reviewing process is applied. Critique, suggestions for modification and opinions on the paper are supplemented by further comments of the directors and remitted to the author. The final decision about the publication of a paper lies with the research directors.
