Since the Treaty of the European Union was ratified in 1993, the European Union has become an important factor in an ever-increasing number of regimes of pooled sovereignty. This Handbook seeks to present a valuable guide to this new and unique system in the twenty-first century, allowing readers to obtain a better understanding of the emerging multilevel European governance system that links national polities to Europe and the global community.
Adopting a pan-European approach, this Handbook brings together the work of leading international academics to cover a wide range of topics such as:
- the historical and theoretical background
- the political systems and institutions of both the EU and its individual member nations
- political parties and party systems
- political elites
- civil society and social movements in European politics
- the political economy of Europe
- public administration and policy-making
- external policies of the EU.
This is an invaluable and comprehensive resource for students, scholars, researchers and practitioners of the European Union, European politics and comparative politics.
