Assemblage, alignment, articulation: the project in/of EU governance
The project, and by extension the programme, is a key instrument of European governance. The function of the project is to draw heterogeneous sets of actors together, to generate connections between them. What are created as a result are assemblages: amorphous, unstable and multidimensional organizational forms. Assemblages endure to the degree of alignment they achieve among the actors of which they are composed: this paper identifies 'articulation practices' as a critical component of European governance.
