Research

Research Interests

Dr Huggins's research interests centre around sub-national government, the European Union and multi-level governance. His PhD studied how local authorities in Engand and France actively engage with the European Union, often bypassing their national governments and how they participate in transnational networks with other European local authorities. The research focuses on the extent of this transnational engagement, the motivations held by those participating and how effectively they engage.

Current Research

Dr Huggins is currently working with Dr Craig McAngus on the ESRC-funded 'UK Fisheries Policy Post-Brexit: Multi-level Challenges and Opportunities' project (ES/R001952/1) which is part of the wider 'UK in a Changing Europe' initiative.
