I detta forskningsprogram undersöker forskare från olika samhällsvetenskapliga discipliner hur EU påverkar det svenska civilsamhället och frivilliga organisationer som företräder marginaliserade grupper (t.ex. fattiga, hemlösa, papperslösa). Frågorna väcks mot bakgrund av att EU numera också har en social och arbetsmarknadspolitisk agenda och på olika sätt försöker inkludera det civila samhället i politiska processer på EU-nivå. Vilken praktisk betydelse har dessa initiativ och hur använder de frivilliga organisationerna EU som en ”politisk möjlighetsstruktur”?

Eftersom relationen mellan EU och medlemsstaterna är komplicerad och den politiska strukturen har förändrats på ett sätt som får återverkningar på flera olika nivåer (nationell, regional, lokal) utgår projektet från ett ”flernivåperspektiv” och består av flera delstudier som bygger på olika datainsamlingsmetoder (analyser av relevanta dokument, intervjuer med organisationsföreträdare och EU-tjänstemän, deltagande observationer, enkätundersökning).
