What Kind of Europe?

Front Cover
OUP Oxford, Mar 24, 2005 - Social Science - 260 pages
The debate on the future of Europe is gathering momentum. The new constitutional treaty, further enlargement, economic reform, and relations with the United States constitute the key elements. The European project has always been about peace, security, democracy, and prosperity through open borders and shared sovereignty, coupled with the defence of basic common values in a world where Europe no longer occupies the big seat at the centre. Some of the fundamentals have been changing, thus forcing the European Union into a redefinition of the project. What Kind of Europe? pinpoints the crucial issues which will shape the future of the EU as an economic and political entity. It also highlights the key democratic choices to be made. Written by one of the world's leading scholars on European integration, this is an updated and expanded edition of the book which received much praise when it first came out in 2003.
