About this book

This edited volume proposes an innovative approach to European Integration by combining economics and political theory in its study of public goods. The contributors review such elements as a neo-medieval governance, the merits of a new European Republic, and, alongside Europe, include South East Asia in its discussions. By addressing different issues within the overarching approach of public goods and the republican paradigm of governance, Collignon introduces an important new perspective.

Reviews

“Stefan Collignon has put together an excellent set of essays around the theme of the desirability and legitimacy of public goods provision by the EU.  This is an important contribution to the new debate about European integration, and more specifically the conditions under which the EU could take significant steps forward in deeper economic and political integration.” (Simon Hix, Harold Laski Professor of Political Science, Department of Government, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK)

“This book is a fundamental reading to reconnect to the real purposes of supranational governance and to counter the gloom and doom approach to the future of Europe with a more positive and optimistic message.” (Professor Leila Simona Talani, Professor of International Political Economy, King’s College London, UK)

“There is a real need for a volume like this.  As rational beings, we all crave a range of public goods.  Where does Europe fit in to their most effective attainment?  How can such an approach help to explain what has been achieved and what hasn’t?  Forget the talk of ‘After Europe’, this volume asks the basic questions afresh and offers greater clarity.” (Kevin Featherstone, Eleftherios Venizelos Professor of Contemporary Greek Studies and Director of the Hellenic Observatory, London School of Economics, UK)
