1. Studies in EU Reform and Enlargement series

    Series editors: Thomas Christiansen, Maastricht University and European Institute of Public Administration, Maastricht, The Netherlands, Anne Faber, formerly of University of Cologne, Germany, Gunilla Herolf, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Sweden and Wolfgang Wessels, Universitaet zu Koeln, Germany

    This exciting new series provides original contributions to one of the key debates about the European Union: the relationship between the twin processes of 'widening' (EU enlargement) and 'deepening' (EU reform). Arising largely from a European-wide research network (EU-CONSENT), the books published in this series will deal with the important issues emerging from these twin challenges facing the European Union at a crucial period in its history. Individual books will focus either on the broader questions of European governance that are raised by the widening/deepening debate, or will look in more detail at specific institutional or sectoral areas. Containing cutting-edge research with a multi-disciplinary approach, the books in this series will be of great interest to scholars of European Studies, politics, economics, law and contemporary history.

    Cultural Diversity, European Identity and the Legitimacy of the EU

    Edited by Dieter Fuchs, Hans-Dieter Klingemann

  2. The Dynamics of Change in EU Governance

    The Dynamics of Change in EU Governance

    Edited by Udo Diedrichs, Wulf Reiners, Wolfgang Wessels
    This book brings together the research of different academic disciplines to explore the recent transformation of governance in the European Union. The emergence, execution and evolution of new modes of EU governance across several policy fields – encompassing all three former pillars of the European Union – are mapped, analysed and evaluated. In particular, the contributors focus on the ways in which these innovative mechanisms and practices relate to ‘old’ methods of governance and what their implications are for both the effectiveness and efficiency of policy-making. Particular attention is devoted to the impact of the Lisbon Treaty on the shape of EU governance. Conclusions are drawn in the form of an integrated framework that explores the dynamics and differentiation of EU governance. Learn More
