About this book

Reviews

"This collection of articles on diversity in the European Union represents solid scholarship and devotes special attention to the actual policies and legal practices with respect to various forms of diversity in the EU. The volume is an excellent primer on the subject." - Jan Nederveen Pieterse, Mellichamp Professor, Global Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara

"By offering theoretically informed empirical research on diversity, this volume successfully targets a gap in the governance debates about European integration. As the editors point out, in these debates diversity is ironically framed both as threatened and as a threat. The book s contributors shed light on the irony by situating EU cases within the wider political theory literature. They study diversity from the three perspectives of multi-level politics and activism, identity politics, and citizenship. By bringing together an international group of scholars, some of whom carry a most distinguished trajectory in studying diversity, Prügl and Thiel have succeeded in grounding diversity theory empirically. The result is certainly relevant for students of diversity in Europe and beyond. For European integration studies this book means moving a remarkable step further towards linking political theory and empirical research." - Antje Wiener, University of Hamburg
