Abstract

The European Union's "democratic deficit" and ways that might be found to resolve it are hot issues in both academic debate and practical politics. Democratizing the European Union offers a fresh approach to this subject by bringing together a diverse range of authors who have been actively involved either in analyzing the activities of the European Union or participating in them.The contributors go beyond a primarily institutional approach by highlighting issues having to do with values, participation, and exclusion. Collectively this volume also transcends the limitations of abstract theory. Embracing a range of perspectives, and including discussions of major contemporary challenges, such as enlargement and economic and monetary union, this book contains a detailed analysis of the response of New Labour to the democratization debate. The contributions include: Sue Cohen, "Social Solidarity in the Delors Period" Sverker Gustavsson, "Reconciling Suprastatism and Accountability: A View from Sweden" Stefano Fella, "A Europe of the Peoples? New Labour and Democratizing the EU" John Lambert and Catherine Hoskyns, "How Democratic is the European Parliament?" Valerio Lintner, "Controlling Monetary Union" Mary Kaldor, "Eastern Enlargement and Democracy" Richard Kuper, "Democratization: A Constitutionalizing Process" and Catherine Hoskyns, "Democratizing the EU: Evidence and Argument."Democratizing the European Union is essential reading for all those with an interest in the EU and broader questions of democracy. It is also particularly useful for students of European Studies and practitioners involved in EU policymaking and lobbying.
