How great is the capacity of the EU to orchestrate 'competitiveness'? Can common policy instruments produce consistent effects? Has substantial policy learning come from the successes and failures of the Lisbon agenda? This book identifies the nature and limits of the transformative capacities of the EU's push for economic gains.
