Seventh Edition

New European Union Series

  • Gives students a solid grounding in theories and empirics of EU policy-making
  • Details the processes and institutions central to EU policy-making
  • Analyses a wide range of policy areas in greater detail than any competing text, considering substantive material in both a practical and theoretical context
  • Concludes with a clear assessment of the challenges that have shaped and will continue to shape policy-making, including enlargement, the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty, and the impacts of the global financial crisis

  • Detailed assessment of the implications for European policy-making of the global financial crisis, the ensuing Great Recession, and the sovereign debt crises that struck many member states
  • Evaluation of the differential impact of the Lisbon Treaty across EU policies
  • Analysis, one decade after the 'big bang' enlargement in 2004, of how expanded membership has affected policy-making
  • Coverage of other major developments including the establishment of the European Stability Mechanism, the reforms of the Common Agricultural Policy and Cohesion Policy, new initiatives to promote EU energy security, and relations with Russia and Ukraine
