About the Authors
  • European economic integration has relied on policies intended to make the European Union strong and resilient economically, socially and politically. The Eurozone crisis and Brexit have demonstrated, however, how fragile this hope was and how contested reforms to the major European economic policies have become. Dariusz Adamski explains the evolution of these policies - from the Economic and Monetary Union to the internal market, international trade, the EU's climate policy, as well as its redistributive policies - and demonstrates how this evolution has made European economic integration increasingly frail. He shows how erroneous economic and political assumptions regarding the direction of the European integration project have interplayed with the EU's constitutional context. Arguing that flaws in individual policies contributing to European economic integration can be remedied in compliance with the existing constitutional setup, he explains why such solutions would be economically beneficial and politically feasible.

    • Demonstrates the relationship between national policies and the travails of European economic integration
    • Explains which economic and political theories are useful in understanding the current state of European integration and which can serve as guidelines for reforming it
    • Will appeal to readers with backgrounds in EU law, economics and politics alike

    Reviews & endorsements

    ‘Having finally emerged from its financial crisis, the EU is searching for a way forward - for a way of ensuring financial stability and sustaining growth while at the same time defending European values. In Dariusz Adamski it has an able cartographer. The road-map he provides in Redefining European Economic Integration should be the definitive guide for those seeking to reconcile these imperatives. We can only hope that European leaders are wise enough to follow it.’ Barry Eichengreen, George C. Pardee and Helen N. Pardee Professor of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley

    ‘An ambitious book which will leave you both hopeful and despairing about the future of Europe.’ J. H. H. Weiler

    ‘An important and sophisticated contribution to the debate about attempts at policy coordination and integration in the European setting, that has important implications for how we interpret globalization and backlashes against integration and globalization.’ Harold James, Claude and Lore Kelly Professor of European Studies, Professor of History and International Affairs, Princeton University, New Jersey
