Challenges to elite accounts of European integration are central to the current EU crisis. It is therefore vital to understand how European elites construct these ‘narratives’. The proposed research will examine the transnational community of European Studies (ES) since 1957, which had a crucial role in shaping these narratives. It will ask how the position of scholars within this network affected what they said or implied about the spatial reach and extent of integration.
