Summary note:
The central, topical theme of this collection is the democratic legitimacy of Europe and its institutions. where one sees too little European democracy, another sees too much Brussels presumption. The euro crisis exposed the tension between democracy and a currency union, and between the nation states of the EU. THe nationalist reflexes that accompany these tensions are visible today in a new and dangerous storm that is indirectly addressed in this book: the migration crisis.
