Reviews

This is a welcome and timely collection that evaluates the impact of the EU's 'Lisbon Strategy' over a decade after its inception and at a time of economic turmoil for the EU. The line-up of contributors is impressive and their contributions are individually and collectively well worth reading. They present a convincing assessment of the failures of the Lisbon agenda to deliver on its aims, offering sober reflections on the weaknesses of EU governance in the past, as well as some suggestions for its future strengthening and reform.

Gráinne de Búrca, New York University Law School, USA

This book provides an extensive analysis of the successes and failures of the Strategy by presenting an impressive range of policy areas. From a policy practitioner's point of view this book is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand both Lisbon and its successor, Europe 2020.

Elisa Roller, European Commission

Bringing together excellent researchers in different policy areas, the book provides an overview of this new form of EU governance architecture that combines open voluntary coordination and the traditional Community method. This is a valuable, competent, and critical study that will certainly become a seminal work in EU studies.

Susana Borrás, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
