Abstract: Th is paper presents an overview of the literature on spatial models of European Union (EU)
politics. We discuss the early theoretical literature from the 1990s as well as more recent
models. Th e early models focused on the legislative procedures in the EU, whereas later models
analyze specifi c aspects of EU politics or specifi c procedures. We further present a comprehensive
overview of the empirical literature that was stimulated by the spatial theory literature. We
conclude that spatial modeling has proven to be an important tool to study EU politics, since
it yields clear and understandable conclusions and creates opportunities for empirical research.
