Though crises arise organically in all political systems, this volume treats the current challenges facing the EU as a unique situation. It takes stock of its losses, gains, and opportunities and what constitutes a viable solution to the EU's current predicament. By envisioning the EU as an evolving rather than static body, this collection zeroes in on the conceptual weaknesses that destabilized the EU and the factors that will help the organization rethink its place and purpose. This book clarifies aspects of EU parliamentarism within the context of the unfolding crisis and addresses political cohesion and institutional integration. It ultimately stresses the role of perception and image on the future of the EU's social and political integration.
