Title of Research:

"EU Energy Policy in the Post-Maastricht Era: A Case for New Intergovernmentalism?".

Brief overview of research topic:

Mihnea’s thesis analyses whether the new intergovernmentalism theory of European integration can explain the development of the European Union’s energy policy since 1992. His research looks at the interplay between the EU’s supranational and intergovernmental bodies, focusing on the three main branches of EU energy policy: the internal energy market, security of supply and climate change.

His other research interests include Europeanisation and EU enlargement.
