This 800-pages long Handbook offers an in-depth analysis of the phenomenon of differentiation in the European Union. It addresses its roots and consequences, especially in light of Brexit.
This volume presents the findings of five mini-publics in which participants were asked to think about which benefits and services should be offered by their government in a generation's time.
Assessing the consequences of Brexit on EU policies, institutions and members, this book discusses the significance of differentiation for the future of European integration.
This handbook paints a holistic picture of the extent to which Euroscepticism has influenced the EU and its member states. By adopting a broad-based, thematic approach, the volume centres on theory and conceptualisation, political parties, public opinion, non-party groups, the role of referendums – and the media – and of scepticism within the EU institutions. It also reflects on the future of Euroscepticism studies in a post-Brexit era.
This book examines welfare state transformations across a representative range of European countries and at the EU level, and considers likely new directions in social policy. It reviews the dominant neo-liberal austerity response and discusses social investment, fightback, welfare chauvinism, and protectionism.
The volume sets out to explain how such an innately contradictory phenomenon as transnational and pan-European Euroscepticism have emerged. It draws on a variety of perspectives and case studies in a number of spheres – the European Parliament, political parties, the media, civil society and public opinion.
