European Integration introduces the reader to the practical economic issues lying at the heart of economic integration in Europe. It examines the extent to which economic development in the European Union is tending towards further integration and seeks to answer the question: is itstill more useful to view the European Union countries as a set of individual economies or to regard them as forming parts of one larger economy? The book presents a solid and up to date bedrock of factual information regarding all the major areas of European integration and also introduces the core concepts of European integration theory. As such it provides an ideal introduction to the current state of economic integration in the EuropeanUnion, written from a European rather than an American perspective. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field and together the chapters deal with all the major aspects of European economic integration, including trade, economic growth, demographics, labour markets, industrial structures,foreign direct investment, monetary integration and eastern enlargement. The final chapter then summarizes the conclusions of the previous chapters and discusses how far the economies of the EU countries have developed into one European economy.
Jorgen Drud Hansen is Jean Monnet Professor of Economics and Director of the Jean Monnet European Centre of Excellence, University of Southern Denmark. He was previously Jean Monnet Professor of European Economics at Odense University and Robert Schumann Visiting Professor at Renmin University, Beijing, China
