In this chapter Claudio Radaelli critically appraises the literature on Europeanization, reviewing a large number of empirical studies and their research design. The chapter discusses concept formation, the role of EU pressure and the agency of actors in processes of Europeanization, and the relationship between this field of research and interpretivism. Finally, the chapter looks at the future of research Europeanization in a context characterized by multiple crises and perhaps Europeanization in reverse.
