[IN FRENCH]Enquête sur les métiers européens à Bruxelles "L'emploi européen" à Bruxelles représente un vivier d'opportunités important pour les jeunes diplômés. Si l'attention se focalise d'originaire sur les institutions de l'UE. de multiples positions sont à pourvoir dans des activités et des organisations (entreprises, ONG, medias, consultances...) liées de près ou de loin à l'intégration européenne. Ce marché du travail demeure cependant encore mal connu. La présente enquête menée par une équipe de l'Institut d'Etudes Européennes de l'ULB et du CEVIPOL vise à construire une image plus précise de ces emplois. Basée sur les réponses de plus de trois cents employeurs, l'enquête EuroJob est un outil permettant aux universités et aux étudiants d'améliorer l'adéquation des formations aux attentes des recruteurs.

« The challenges of territorial representation at the supranational level: The case of French MEPs”
Disponible sur :http://www.palgrave-journals.com/fp/journal/v11/n1/index.html
Even though the territorial dimension of the European representative mandate may be a key element for European Union's legitimization, it remains overlooked in academic literature. This article explores this statement by analysing the EP's French delegation, which includes several interesting features with regard to territorial representation. The article is structured around three research questions: how do French Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) deal with the territorial dimension of their mandate? Why are there some variations regarding focus of representation? To what extent does their focus of representation affect their role orientation? Relying on the results of 37 interviews with French MEPs using both closed and open-ended questions, we demonstrate that the MEPs develop a composite view of representation and display some variations in terms of focus of representation. Those variations are explained mostly through the actor's political orientations and socio-biographic characteristics. We also understand that the focus of representation has some effect on how French MEPs conceive their mandate.
Special Issue Comparative European Politics: The Crisis of Italian Democracy in the European Context Guest Editors: Mario Telò, Giulia Sandri, Luca Tomini and Jean-Michel de Waele
The need to appraise the recent evolution of Italian democracy in order to better understand the current transition process and political turmoil is the main reason for this special issue. This seems particularly relevant at a time of rapid political change, which seems to have derived from the consequences of Berlusconi’s resignation in November 2011, the subsequent end of the Berlusconi IV government and the establishment of the technical government led by the former European Commissioner Mario Monti. The most important feature of this special issue is the effort to mobilise different disciplines such as political science, economics, history and sociology, in order to provide, on the one hand, a rigorous and comprehensive overview of the quality of the Italian democracy. This evaluation explores the main features, singularities and evolutionary trajectories of the Italian democratic system by constantly developing the analysis within the European context and within a comparative perspective. On the other hand, this overview of the quality of Italian democracy also provides a detailed study of some specific issues that have recently characterised contemporary Italian public debate: governmental performance; the attempts to reform the constitutional order; the relationship between the executive and legislative; and the Italian model of political economy.
