'Citzenship, Democracy and Justice in the New Europe' discusses the questions of political principle raised by the creation of the new Europe and the processes of European integration. It examines what the framework might be for the nature and citizenship on a politically unified Europe. It discusses what framework of rights and obligations would link the members of culturally, linguistically and socially diverse European states to one another. It also considers what role ideas of social justice play in the shaping of institutions and policies and what are the relevant theories of justice. The contributors show how the new Europe poses novel questions for normative political theory. They also demonstrate the importance of the contribution political theorists can make to the integration debates.
