This book brings together contributors from economics, political science and law to offer different perspectives on this larger issue. The questions asked include: How far has the European Union come in its creation of a Common Foreign and Security Policy? What will happen to the state monopolies?

By investigating these and similar issues the book contributes to an assessment of how successful European integration has been to date (Less)
