On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) is delighted to have awarded honorary doctorates to Prof. Dr. Liesbet Hooghe and Prof. Dr. Gary Marks for their joint research on multi-level governance, particularly in the context of European integration.
Professors Hooghe and Marks received their honorary doctorates in the St. Janskerk during the celebration of the 48th Dies Natalis of Maastricht University on Friday 26 January. In the morning, FASoS organized a roundtable in their honour. Staff and students had the opportunity to meet both laureates and reflected on the importance of their research.

Liesbet Hooghe and Gary Marks work as professors of Political Science at the University of North Carolina and parttime also as Research Professors at the European University Institute in Florence. Together they developed the concept of multilevel governance, which emerged from research on European integration.
