I am currently conducting a research programme with PhD candidate Nuri Kurnaz called "Colonial exceptionalism or co-imperialism? Imperial powers and European unity". It starts from the premise that the reformist nature of the European integration process could well be combined with imperial conservatism. Dr. Robin de Bruin
