Gunnar Matthiesen German policy towards economic and monetary union. ..

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 1999 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: very good, University of Canterbury (Department of Politics and International Relations), 44 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this paper is to explore the German national interest in European Economic and Monetary Union. Although not ignoring economic arguments, the analysis focuses on the arguably even more important political benefits and interests. The first chapter introduces EMU from a European perspective, as the next logical step to complete the Single Market and as a source of economic advantages for EU member states. However, it is also an important vehicle for the aim of political union. Hence, in view of Germany′s traditional position in Europe, the progress EMU represents in terms of achieving European unity is a significant factor that led to the unequivocal attitude of the Kohl government favour of EMU.The absolute necessity for Germany to advance the integration process was emphasised by German unification and the resulting political impossibility to refuse EMU as international support for a unified Germany was tied to stronger European integration. In addition, the common currency has benefits for Germany′s foreign trade reliant economy which seem to outweigh the economic doubts. Nevertheless, these concerns did play a role in defining political approaches and have influenced both the opposition′s stance and ...

Julia Kaute Warming Up for the Eu. Iceland and European Integration

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 1,0, University of Hannover (Institut für Politische Wissenschaft), language: English, abstract: The overall aim of this work is to analyze and explain the change of behavior of the Icelandic political elites toward European integration, with specific focus on the domestic and external, political and economic developments that contributed to this change and eventually led to Iceland's EU accession bid in 2009. To this end, the author has chosen to specifically focus on the time period from the outbreak of the financial crisis in Iceland in 2008 to the day of Iceland's official EU application in July 2009. Nevertheless, historical developments that are relevant for properly explaining Iceland's behavior toward European integration have been included where appropriate.

Jana Rademacher The German-Polish Border. A European Region.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 8, Maastricht University (Faculty for Arts and Social Sciences), language: English, abstract: The paper deals with the subject matter of the German-Polish border region and its implications for Poland's integration into the European Union. The research question is: Is the German-Polish border region (along the River Oder) a European region? This also implies the question whether Poland is fully integrated into the European Union. To answer the question, this paper deals with the importance, which political and cultural relations with Germany have for Poland's integration into the EU. The paper will attempt to demonstrate the connection between cultural exchange and political relations. In the course of the analysis the significance of stereotypes and prejudices formed by historical events and circumstances is being analised. The focus is on the endeavours undertaken by Polish and German governments, civil society organisations and cultural institutions to make a difference concerning the complicated historical and political situation regarding the EU enlargement and Poland's accession.

Dominik Kirchdorfer Rethinking the European Union

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 1, University of Vienna (Institut für Politikwissenschaft), course: Bachelorseminar, language: English, abstract: The European Union is a constant topic for debate. In this thesis I take a closer look at the Union's many problems, possible solutions and how European integration should/will likely progress in the future. To accomplish this, I compare the EU's policy to other similar types, such as composite states (accessory union & union aeque principaliter). Furthermore I look at Switzerland, as an example for diversity in one state and the USA and similar models, as a reference point for federalism.

Nora Anton Bolivar.s Dream Come True.

Master's Thesis from the year 2006 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Middle- and South America, grade: 1,3, University of Münster (Politikwissenschaft), 84 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Shortly after the treaties founding the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), European Atomic Energy Community (EAC) and European Community (EC) were signed, there were efforts in other regions of the world as well to follow this example, notably in Latin America, where, among other Associations, the Andean Pact (now Andean Community or Comunidad Andina de Naciones, CAN) was established. In contrast to that on European integration, however, most political and academic discourse on the Andean Community agrees upon the fact that this integration process has, up to now, not been very "successful", and quite often it is called a complete failure. This thesis wants to contribute to the search of possible reasons for this.In order to explain the lack of "success" of Andean integration - especially in the period since the late 1980s - this thesis focuses on an element which, in most integration theories, is considered the most important prerequisite for regional integration: interdependence, and thus a demand for integration on the part of the region's citizens. It is argued that in principle, integration can create or at least reinforce its own demand, but that this has only happened in the Andean case to a relatively s...

Harald Löberbauer The elusive quest for security continues - The European Union.s foreign policy and it.s implications to transatlantic relations

Master's Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 1, University of Vienna, 240 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The title of this analysis is based on a book by Simon Duke dealing with the theoretical implications of a common European foreign policy in security and defense matters. The content of the book differs from the content of this paper and is not related to the questions posed in this research.1Part II of this research gives a detailed overview of what security actually means in global politics and how key players understand it. General definitions and theory allows us to understand the major parts of this thesis (part III and IV). Part III describes different approaches to security in IR theory and explains it on the basis of European political integration. The historio-political analysis in this part shows the evolution of a CFSP and the ESDP. Institutionalization processes within the European Union explain the current status of the EU's foreign policy, which is a status in process without having a clear and defined goal. This part includes the legal dimension of the EU's foreign policy as well and describes the problematic situation Europeans currently have to face, namely disputes about the legal personality of the European Community and the European Union. Part IV is the second major part of the paper and deals with security challenges and the impact of the EU&#...

Hannah Cosse European Publicity - A new way to democratise the EU.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2005 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 2,0, University of Münster (Institut für Politikwissenschaft; Faculty for Business, Public Administration and Technology), course: Public Administration, 19 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: I.1. Introduction and Problem DefinitionOn its way from an economical partnership to a political union the EU has faced a long-time debate about its democratic deficits. Discussions and proposed remedies focused mainly on the institutional side of the problem and the ques-tion of how the institutions can be democratised. Since the 1990s the debate about European identity and citizenship attracted the limelight of the political debate within the European Union. However, this paper will neither focus on the institutional nor on the identity part of the debate about the democratic deficits of the EU, but will focus on a dimension in between.Direct democracy, as in the Greek city states, is, because of the size of modern democracies, not feasible anymore. The media is needed to communicate deci-sions (top-down) as well as the will of the people (bottom-up). (Mass-) media creates publicity. On a national level there is a network of print, TV and online media, which creates a tight arrangement of top-down and bottom-up communi-cation: national publicity. The European Union, with its multi-level-governance structures and the heterogeneous identities, is more...

Christian Rauh Fitting already in. Romania and the political criterion of Copenhagen

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 1,0, , course: Difficult enlargement - New member states in the EU, 15 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In the view of ongoing political debates about the future and scope of the European Union in general and about EU enlargement specifically, this paper addresses the readiness of Romania in terms of political requirements specified in the Copenhagen Criteria. A theoretically oriented section highlights approaches that explain the influence of the EU on reforms in (potential) candidate states. It concludes that it is the prospect of membership that supports reforms. The following section attempts a quantitative comparison regarding the political criterion between Romania and the baselines of (a) the EU 25, (b) the EU 12 and (c) the eight Central and Eastern European States that accessed the EU in 2004. The analysis thereby relies on the most recent data set of the World Bank Governance Indicators. The results suggest that Romania is factually far away from all three baselines in terms of the political criterion. Accordingly, the paper concludes that a postponement of accession in the framework of the existing treaties would be highly reasonable - both from the Romanian and the European perspective and apart from biases stemming from short term political interests that inform most often the contemporary debate.

Jan Zielonka Is the EU Doomed?

The European Union is in crisis. Crippled by economic problems, political brinkmanship, and institutional rigidity, the EU faces an increasingly uncertain future. In this compelling essay, leading scholar of European politics, Jan Zielonka argues that although the EU will only survive in modest form – deprived of many real powers – Europe as an integrated entity will grow stronger. Integration, he contends, will continue apace because of European states’ profound economic interdependence, historic ties and the need for political pragmatism. A revitalized Europe led by major cities, regions and powerful NGOs will emerge in which a new type of continental solidarity can flourish. The EU may well be doomed, but Europe certainly is not.

Adrian Guelke Politics in Deeply Divided Societies

The establishment of durable, democratic institutions constitutes one of the major challenges of our age. As countless contemporary examples have shown, it requires far more than simply the holding of free elections. The consolidation of a legitimate constitutional order is difficult to achieve in any society, but it is especially problematic in societies with deep social cleavages. This book provides an authoritative and systematic analysis of the politics of so- called ‘deeply divided societies' in the post Cold War era. From Bosnia to South Africa, Northern Ireland to Iraq, it explains why such places are so prone to political violence, and demonstrates why – even in times of peace – the fear of violence continues to shape attitudes, entrenching divisions in societies that already lack consensus on their political institutions. Combining intellectual rigour and accessibility, it examines the challenge of establishing order and justice in such unstable environments, and critically assesses a range of political options available, from partition to power-sharing and various initiatives to promote integration. The Politics of Deeply Divided Societies is an ideal resource for students of comparative politics and related disciplines, as well as anyone with an interest in the dynamics of ethnic conflict and nationalism.

Lucas Schramm Solidarity. From the Heart or by Force .

Master's Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 2,0, College of Europe (Department for European and Governance Studies), language: English, abstract: In the years 2015 and 2016, the European Union (EU) and (some of) its member states were facing a very high number of asylum-seekers. This inflow revealed the shortcomings and dysfunctionalities of the European asylum system and plunged the EU into one of its biggest crises: Member states could hardly agree on common measures, and different national preferences for dealing with asylum-seekers led to profound and ongoing political divisions. Germany, which particularly was affected by the inflow, sought to 'europeanize' the phenomenon and to distribute the loads more evenly across the EU - but met major resistance. Contrarily to the widely held view - both in the academic literature and the European public - that Germany, in recent years, has shaped and even dominated European politics, it largely failed with its main policy proposals in the refugee and migrant crisis. To uncover the reasons, the present thesis applies an analytical model of 'political leadership'. Based on current academic research, relevant newspaper articles and self-conducted expert interviews, it is argued that there might have been supply but not sufficient demand for successful German political leadership. In doing so, this thesis so far is the only larger academic pape...

Nevena Nancheva A European Crisis. Perspectives on Refugees, Solidarity, and Europe.

This is a book about the crisis of the European integration project as seen from the vantage point of people's movements across and to the European continent. But why should the issue of refugees or of migration have anything to do with the dynamics of the integration or disintegration of the European Union? If anything, the existing global refugee protection regime was conceived in Europe at about the time when Europe began to integrate: It was seen as a moral imperative in the context of European solidarity and in the face of crisis. How did refugee protection become so controversial as to usher in a crisis of its own? Why do European governments and their peoples see refugees and migrants as the cause of a crisis in and of Europe? Solidarity, legitimacy, democracy, welfare, rights: How has refugee migration undermined European positions on all that has defined EU integration so far? This collection engages with these questions by focusing on the construction of the crisis narrative, offering an insight into distinctly European perspectives on and analyses of political responses to refugees, migration, and economic challenges. The aim of the volume is to provide an empirical and thematic context for understanding the link between refugee migration and the overpowering perception of Europe in crisis.

Hans Christian Siller Why Europe does not need a constitution

Seminar paper from the year 2000 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 1,0 (A), University of Freiburg (Political Science), course: VL/HS: Issues of Contemporary International Politics, 59 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In the last months the discussion about a European Constitution has gained further popularity with the highly controversial speech of German foreign minister Joschka Fischer at the Humboldt University3. Until recently, most draft constitutions like the Spinelli initiative of the European Parliament in 1994 or the Herman Report in 1994 were discussed on a theoretical level without a hope for realization. Now there is a wave of speeches and contribution of key politicians on this subject. In fact, there are reasons to assume that there is more to it that just the typical German focus on constitutionalism4 but that "a window of opportunity is opening"5: the need for legal and institutional reform becomes evident in view of the incipient eastern enlargement and the results of the Amsterdam Conference and its postponing strategy have satisfied only few. Moreover, the fact that ECSC expires in 2002 gives further monumentum to the discussion about where Europe should be heading in the years to come and how the problems of a deeper and enlarged Union can be overcome.1 see Schneider, Heinrich: Gesamteuropäische Herausforderungen an eine Europäische Union, in: Wildenmann, Rudolf (Hrsg.): Staat...

Livia Door The Democratic Deficit Debate in the European Union

The idea of the integration we live in today was born after World War II. At the outset of the European integration there were only six countries establishing the European Coal and Steel Community and their aim was to maintain peace and prosperity. In order to fulfil this aim, supranational institutions were established. With the development of the European Community more and more power has been delegated to the supranational institutions and therefore from the 1980s articles, studies, books started to be published dealing with the European Community from a democratic point of view. A number of critics were written stating that the integration suffers from a democratic deficit. The question raised in this book is the following: Is there a democratic deficit in the EU? In order to receive an answer, first the term democratic deficit itself is focused on (what is meant by it and how it relates to the European Union) and then the EU Institutions and the Constitutional Treaty of the European Union are concentrated on. This work should especially be useful for anyone who is interested in politics and wants to study the system of the EU more deeply.

Laura Rubio The EU Integration Model. A Commodity for Export.

Over the last few years it seems that the tendency in international relations leads to regionalization. With the European Union as the champion of Integration, other projects and blocs of regional integration have emerged. Of all these projects, it is that of MERCOSUR that has taken on the most ambitious and far reaching goals, coming closer than any other to the European integration experience. The Southern bloc intends to create a common market, while controlling or regulating many spheres of the former exclusive domains of the Nation State such as cultural and economical aspects. On the other hand, some experts assure that the integration process in MERCOSUR is submerged in a political crisis that is leading to its decline. Many advocate for the need to reshape its institutional design to keep it from falling apart. This book procures to shed light on the integration process of MERCOSUR. Its goal is to determine whether the conditions given in MERCOSUR correspond to those needed to make the European project of integration advance to its current status quo. That is, whether the European model of integration can in fact be "exported" and applied to this context.
