How States Behave in a New Institutional Context of Negotiation
This research has been an exceptional adventure in many regards, humanly speaking and intellectually speaking. The final result would not have been possible without the help of a number of people, to only some of whom it is possible to give particular mention here.
First of all, I would like to address my sincere expression of gratitude to Prof. Renaud Dehousse, for accepting to supervise this research and for his endless encouragements throughout these years. It has been a great privilege to conduct my research in collaboration with a professor of his stature.
I would like to address a special thanks to the Centre of European Studies at Sciences Po for providing me during several years with all the facilities and logistic support that a doctoral student could dream about and for financing with a three year grant “Bourse Europe” my research. Working there during three years was a unique occasion to meet and have exchanges with top international scholars on my research topic. My gratitude goes to Kalypso Nicolaides, Paul Magnette, Michael Schakleton, Vivien Schmidt, Wolfgang Wessels, Olivier Costa, Aurelien Colson and Daniel Druckman for having commented on early drafts of my research project, and for having provided me with useful advice on how to better approach my object of interest.
