The debate on the future of Europe is gathering momentum. The new constitutional treaty, further enlargement, economic reform, and relations with the United States constitute the key elements. The European project has always been about peace, security, democracy, and prosperity through openborders and shared sovereignty, coupled with the defence of basic common values in a world where Europe no longer occupies the big seat at the centre. Some of the fundamentals have been changing, thus forcing the European Union into a redefinition of the project.What Kind of Europe? pinpoints the crucial issues which will shape the future of the EU as an economic and political entity. It also highlights the key democratic choices to be made. Written by one of the world's leading scholars on European integration, this is an updated and expanded edition ofthe book which received much praise when it first came out in 2003.
Loukas Tsoukalis is at Jean Monnet Professor at the University of Athens; Visiting Professor at the College of Europe; President of the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP). In 2005, he was appointed Special Adviser to the President of the European Commission..

Editorial Reviews

`... this is not just one more book on the theory of European integration, nor a specialized study of the intricacies of EU governance and policymaking. It is, quite simply, the most readable, comprehensive, and balanced account yet of an extraordinary experiment in interstate cooperation ...an admirable piece of work.'Foreign Affairs
