You did not state a direct question, but selecting a proper multivariate method depends on variable scale (continuous, ordinal, nominal) and purpose (prediction, association, data reduction, etc). For instance, if one have a set of data measured in different scales (dependent variable) and wants to predict an independent variable (score?) measured in a rank scale, multivariate ordinal regression would apply.

We are planning to classify green infrastructure based on remote sensing data for several European study sites most possibly using Sentinel satellite data (10 m resolution). I am interested in your experiences conducting similar studies also if you have used different data. I also would like to know what methods you have used for classification (i.e. supervised pixel-based …) as well as accuracy values and classification tree/legend. Thank you for sharing!

Hi, Catalina.
I think, there is quite a lot literature on this topic out there. One of the recent texts, I came across, was Ana Juncos´ "Member state-building versus peacebuilding: the contradictions of EU state-building in Bosnia and Herzegovina" (http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/13523279.2011.635650). You might want to check the reference list of this article to find out other relevant studies (e,g, Gergana Noutcheva has wrote a lot on the EU democratization policy incl. in the Balkans region). 
Hope, it helps.
All the best,
Ekaterina

What is the definition that renders greated utility in European studies? Can we still refer to the EU as a multi-layered governance system? Must we add a networking component? What is the definition you prefer when it comes to the EU governance and what is the mainstream definition of the term?

Not sure I can give you a definitive answer on your question, however, I recently read a fantastic new book called Innovative Governance in the European Union: The Politics of Multilevel Policymaking (Lynne Rienner).  It might contain the answer you seek.

The future data protection package includes a General Regulation and a Directive on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by competent authorities for the purposes of prevention, investigation, detection or prosecution of criminal offences or the execution of criminal penalties, and the free movement of such data.
However, the data protection package initially leaves unaffected Prüm regime as was pointed out by the European Data Protection Supervisor (Opinion of the European Data Protection Supervisor on the data protection reform package, 7 March 2012, 443, page 68 ).
The Amendment 6 of EU Parliament (14 March 2014) introduced it. (EP legislative resolution of 12 March 2014 COM(2012)0010 – C7-0024/2012 – 2012/0010(COD)) Today (4 December 2014) is in discussion within the Council (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/procedure/EN/201285)

Having in mind that a public service is an economic activity of general interest under the competence of the public authorities which define, set them in place and control them, looking into this area which can be seen as "integration without competence" can be difficult. Namely, alongside the influence of the integration process on the public administrations and convergence towards a common European Administrative Space, the impact on public services remains open. Still, undeniably the EU legislation has an influence and even a transformatory effect that goes beyond the legal thinking itself. 
I have the problem that I have found very little written in this respect and would be immensely grateful if I'd receive some pointers and directions on this! Thanks!
Relevant answer
Answer
It can indeed be distinguished between different ways of how the European integration impacts on national public services. 1. Impact through EU law, 2. Impact through the case law of the European Court of Justice and 3. Impact through regular and continuous European and International cooperation in the field of public administration and the regular exchange of experiences and good practices. The impact under 3 is of a more indirect nature and promotes change at the national level of public services through the developments of common viewpoints, opinions with regard to public sector reform and the introduction of common tools such as the CAF, the Common Assessment Framework and the guidelines on customer satisfaction etc.  Examples of networks and organisations which encourage these common learning processes are the European Public Administration Network, EUPAN, an informal network which regularly meets in order to exchange experiences and practices in the field of HRM and innovative public services  and the work of the OECD such as Government at a glance etc. Another interesting development in this context is the recently founded formal sectoral social dialogue committee in the field of the central public administrations, which is supported by the European Commission. For more information in this context, see for instance www.eupan.org. However, even if these developments favour similar development trends in the field of public sector reform, there exists no trend towards a common model of public administration.

Can we speak of a toolkit to analyse the Europeanization of public administrations?

Answer
I ordinarily think of public administration as beyond my ken. But I recently made use of some of the EU Commission's progress reports on Turkey. The subject of administration comes up quite a bit. I realize that I am not quite answering your question, which focuses on methods of assessment, But it occurred to me that such reports on Turkey and/or other candidate members might be useful to you. See,for example, the 2014 report on Turkey: http://ec.europa.eu/enlargement/pdf/key_documents/2014/20141008-turkey-progress-report_en.pdf

I have been studying post-Communist public administration reforms especially the Romanian case and South-Eastern Europe since 2006 and witnessed the growth of the interest and literature in this field. I am especially interested in expalining the huge transformations within South-Eastern European public administrations through a historical institutionalism approach within the European integration process. Could you indicate the most influential study in the area?

In its judgment on 27 February 2014 the Court of Justice ruled that where a Member State chooses to provide a financial allowance instead of asylum accommodation, the allowance must, inter alia, be sufficient to ensure a dignified standard of living and enable the asylum applicants to obtain housing, if necessary, on the private rental market. Are there any legal or practical consequences of this judgment in your country?

According to art. 3.8 of the directive 2008/115 "voluntary departure" means compliance with the obligation to return within the time-limit fixed for that purpose in the return decision. Is it right to use this notion interchangeably with the notion "voluntary return"?
Relevant answer
Answer
I have heard "departure" used far more often than "return" because "return" implies that the migrant is going back to their home country, which might not always be the case. "Departure" is ultimately what the state is requiring the migrant to do, regardless of where the migrant departs to.
There is also the issue of how voluntary departure works in practice. Often times there are significant pressures put on migrants to take the option of leaving voluntarily, so much so that it is hardly voluntary. I recently heard an advocate refer to "voluntary deportation" to describe how coerced these choices often are. Of course there are legal and procedural differences between voluntary departure and deportation, but from the migrant's perspective their may be few differences in the experience.

I think that need huge efforts
Relevant answer
Answer
If the questoin is if there will be the United States of Europe someday the answer is definitely no. The French president Sarkozy said once that France will never be the California of Europe. But there is no doubt that the integration will continue. The legitimation deficit will be declined by institutional developments, e.g. more rights to the European and/or national parliament(s).
The main problems without reasonable solutions in sight are in the structulal area. How to create a European spirit? How to create a European Nation? Eric Hobsbawm (2005) said that history has shown that states make nations, not the other way around. As long as the state is not wanted the chances for a nation are very small, dispite ideas of deliberation and other direct democracy tools.
