The EUI Library celebrated the EUI’s 3000th thesis in Cadmus (both PhDs and LLMs counted), by donating a Special Gold Edition thesis to the author and new Doctor of Political and Social Sciences of the European University Institute, Lewis Gordon Miller, on the occasion of his defence today 26 November 2019.
The Examining Board was composed of Professor Philipp Genschel, European University Institute (Supervisor), Professor Adrienne Héritier, European University Institute, Professor Uwe Puetter, Central European University and Professor Michael E. Smith, University of Aberdeen.
Lewis Gordon Miller's PhD thesis is entitled Communitarisation: From Intergovernmental to Community Policy-Making in Core State Powers and can be consulted in the EUI Library. The Cadmus record of the thesis contains detailed information and the cover of the special issue, while the pdf is under embargo for four years.
It was not only the 3000th thesis but also nearly exactly 40 years since the very first thesis was defended at the EUI on the 26 September 1979: Jesper Jespersen, Conventional and more recent theories of the balance of payments with special regard to the Danish capital account, EUI PhD theses, Department of Economics. The very first thesis is available in Open Access in Cadmus thanks to the Library’s Alumni Outreach and Open Access project, and, of course, thanks to the author's authorisation, for open access.
A close next threshold will be the 1000th Open Access thesis in Cadmus. Please contact [email protected] if you want to make your EUI thesis Open Access.
