About this book

Transnational connections are a defining feature of contemporary Europe. They include cross-border economic and cultural exchange, migration, and political activism. This volume probes their political and social significance and makes a case for incorporating transnationalism more systematically into the research agenda of European Studies.

Reviews

"Dissecting processes of transnationalization in significant realms of European politics and society, Joan DeBardeleben, Achim Hurrelmann and their co-authors claim a transnational perspective for European Studies.A timely and welcome contribution, the transnational approach enriches interdisciplinary dialogue and challenges established theories to ask new questions on European governance, social inequalities and collective identities."

Thomas Faist, Professor of Transnational and Development Studies, Bielefeld University, Germany

"This volume addresses the topical theme of transnationalism. Its original approach to this topic consists in studying 'transnational Europe' from different perspectives . As the editors summarise convincingly in the conclusion, the book most directly engages with neo-functionalist assumptions about spill-overs and unintended consequences. Carefully, however, the editors stress that transnational Europe does not promote a rival theory to Neofunctionalism, but offers a distinct, more detailed and more up-to date perspective on European integration studies and European studies more broadly speaking than the latter could have predicted in the last century. The book will make especially useful reading as a companion to European Integration theories on all academic levels and will offer important inspiration to practitioners as well.'

Antje Wiener, Professor, Hanse-Institute for Advanced Studies, Germany and University of Hamburg, Germany
