Representing Europeans: A Pragmatic Approach

 
9780198744344: Representing Europeans: A Pragmatic Approach

Representing Europeans makes a fresh assessment of the challenge facing the European Union today: it can no longer carry out integration by stealth. Measures adopted to save the eurozone impose visible political costs without clearly visible benefits. There is a lack of popular commitment to more European integration because EU institutions represent its citizens indirectly or not at all. Reliance on citizenship lite is politically dangerous, since people retain the power to reject their national government because of commitments it makes in Brussels. The book's pragmatic approach recommends that enhanced European integration should be based on coalitions of the willing and accommodation of the unwilling. Federalists and Eurosceptics will alternatively agree and disagree with the argument of this book. But they cannot ignore the challenge it raises for the EU to pay more attention to the half a billion people it claims to represent.

Richard Rose has lectured in 25 of the 27 member states of the European Union.

Scholarly publications have earned him major scholarly honours from European and American institutions.

He is co-founder of the European Consortium for Political Research and holder of its lifetime achievement award. He is Professor of Politics at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

Review:


"Informed by good scholarship ... offers some original insights ... as informative on the way in which the EU works as it is judicious in its identification of the problems that European politics faces."--Times Higher Education


"This provocative effort convincingly argues that the European Union has effectively reached its limit as a functioning multinational organization... This volume contains a wealth of data presented in clear graphic format... Highly recommended." --CHOICE

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reprint, Expanded, Updated. Language: English . Brand New Book. Representing Europeans takes a fresh and quizzical look at the problems facing the European Union. Bringing decades of experience to bear on the deep, structural problems currently facing the EU, Richard Rose spells out why it can no longer carry on with integration by stealth. Extraordinary challenges DL such as saving the Eurozone and maintaining the free movement of peoples DL now impose high-profile economic and political costs. These create huge political strains which EU institutions struggle to cope with. Rose shows the ways in which Europe s institutions do and do not represent its citizens, sometimes equally and sometimes unequally. This threatens worse crises of EU authority because people retain the power as national citizens to protest against their government making commitments in Brussels that they do not accept. The book s pragmatic approach rejects the assumption that more European integration is the solution for all of Europes problems. Likewise, it rejects UK withdrawal from the European Union because Britain cannot stop the world and get off. Instead, it suggests a pragmatic approach that asks about proposals emanating from Brussels: What problem does it address?How will this policy work? What are its visible costs and benefits? Instead of one size fits all policies being imposed on 27 diverse countries, Rose recommends that enhanced European cooperation should be based on coalitions of the willing. Moreover, the active use of pan-European referendums on major reforms can test popular commitment to EU treaties that permanently advance European integration. Both European federalists and diehard Eurosceptics will alternately agree and disagree with the argument of this book. But they cannot ignore the challenge it raises to pay more attention to the concerns of the half a billion Europeans whom they claim to represent. The paperback edition contains a substantial new Preface. Codice libro della libreria AOP9780198744344
