Nils Ringe's research and teaching interests are European Union politics (in particular the institutions of the EU), legislatures, political parties, social networks, and elections. His new book (with Jennifer N. Victor, George Mason University) is titled "Bridging the Information Gap: Legislative Member Organizations as Social Networks in the United States and the European Union" (University of Michigan Press; click here for details). It examines voluntary, issue-based, cross-partisan groups of legislators (such as caucuses in the U.S. Congress and intergroups in the European Parliament) in a comparative perspective. His previous book, "Who Decides, and How? Preferences, Uncertainty, and Policy Choice in the European Parliament," was published in 2010 by Oxford University Press. Ringe is currently working on a series of papers on social networks in legislative politics. He is also the Director of the Center for European Studies and the European Studies Alliance.
