Towards a segmented European political order: The European Union’s post-crises conundrum • John Erik Fossum & Jozef Bátora

16th December 2020 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

A Book Presentation organised in the framework of the Seminar Series of the European Governance and Politics Programme.

The book is directed at the debate on the European Union (EU)’s present and future development. It takes as its point of departure how the range of crises and challenges over the last decade have transformed the EU and relates those findings to the discussion of an increasingly differentiated EU. It argues that the post-crises EU shows clear signs of becoming a segmented political order with in-built biases and constraints. The book spells out the key features of such an order in ideational and structural terms and shows how it more concretely manifests itself in the EU’s institutional and constitutional make-up and in how member states constrain and condition EU action.

Speakers: Prof John Erik Fossum and Prof Jozef Bátora

Chair: Prof Daniele Caramani
