Show Summary Details


This book represents the relaunching of the State of the European Union series sponsored by the European Community Studies Association. It features 19 papers on the ‘four Rs’ that embody the EU experience: risk, reform, resistance and revival. Risk is defined in terms of the stakes attached to the European project. Reform is the attempt to shape and reshape the European project in its pursuit of efficiency, effectiveness, and avoidance of the risk of non-reform. Resistance refers to the forces that oppose reform. Revival refers to the breakthroughs precipitated by shifts in the balance between risk, reform, and resistance.

Keywords: European Union; risk; reform; resistance; revival
