  1. Regional Governance in the EU

    Regional Governance in the EU

    Edited by Gabriele Abels, Jan Battke
    The role of regions in the European Union has been frequently debated since the 1980s. This comprehensive book provides a thorough overview of the issue from a variety of perspectives, analysing regional governance and territorial dynamics in the EU and its member states. Focusing on the implications of the democratisation–regionalisation nexus, it argues that a ‘Europe with the regions’ may promote good governance and ameliorate the democratic deficits of the EU.

  3. Europe, China, and the Limits of Normative Power

    Europe, China, and the Limits of Normative Power

    Zsuzsa A. Ferenczy
    Europe, China, and the Limits of Normative Power is a groundbreaking book, offering insights into European influence regarding China’s development, during a period when Europe confronts its most serious political, social, and economic crises of the post-war period. Considering Europe’s identity and its future international relevance, this book examines the extent to which Europe’s multi-layered governance structure, the normative divergence overshadowing EU–China relations and Europe’s crises continue to shape – and often limit – Europe’s capacity to inspire China’s development.

  4. Exploring the EU’s Legitimacy Crisis

    Exploring the EU’s Legitimacy Crisis

    Christian Schweiger
    Exploring the EU’s Legitimacy Crisis provides a profound analysis of the causes and the consequences of the EU's growing legitimacy problem. The prior permissive consensus in the EU has been markedly declining under persistent crisis conditions. Since the onset of the eurozone crisis the EU's governance has been narrowly driven by the semi-hegemonial leadership of Germany – manifesting itself in functionalist and technocratic policy reforms concentrated on strengthening economic governance coordination. Other crucial policy areas have been neglected as member states show decreasing solidarity and a growing emphasis on national interests in response to mounting external challenges. This book examines these developments in detail by scrutinising the EU's ability to maintain legitimacy through political leadership, democratic accountability and governance efficiency. Learn More

  6. Shaping EU Policy from Below

    Shaping EU Policy from Below

    Simona Piattoni, Justus Schönlau
    This book looks at the way in which the Committee of the Regions (CoR) can influence EU policy making from below, despite its relatively weak position in the decision-making process. Bringing together theoretical arguments about the central role of the formation of judgment in addition to the more conventionally emphasized expression of will, with an up-to-date account of the CoR's institutional development and activities, Simona Piattoni and Justus Schönlau make a strong case not to overlook the significance of the Committee's contribution to EU-level democracy.

  9. Euroscepticism in the EU

    Euroscepticism in the EU

    Edited by Simon Usherwood, Nicholas Startin, Simon Guerra
    Although euroscepticism appears to be on the rise across the EU, it remains a poorly understood phenomenon, reflecting political marginalisation and indifference. This collection addresses those shortcomings by providing an integrated set of reflections on the understanding of the term. Expert contributors offer a range of disciplinary approaches to euroscepticism and illustrate the breadth and scope of the topic with a selection of innovative case studies. The book provides a thought-provoking contribution to the academic literature at a time when the future of the European integration project is increasingly being challenged. The volume is highly innovative, reconceptualising the important phenomenon of euroscepticism in a new and interdisciplinary light. Learn More
