EU3D's work packages (WPs)
WP1 Analytical Framework
Heads of WP: John Erik Fossum (ARENA) and Erik O. Eriksen (ARENA)

WP2 EU-internal differentiation
Heads of WP: Jozef Bàtora (Comenius University) and Ben Rosamond (University of Copenhagen)
Key objective: To identify and assess those forms of EU differentiation that are most closely associated with dominance with regard to EU-internal forms of differentiation, and trace their causes and historical roots.
WP3 EU-external differentiation
Heads of WP: Dia Anagnostou (ELIAMEP), Sabine Saurugger (Sciences Po Grenoble) and Chris Lord (ARENA)

Heads of WP: Dirk Leuffen (University of Konstanz), Jan Zielonka (University of Oxford) and Asimina Michailidou (ARENA)
