The book provides an in-depth analysis of Eurosceptics’ strategies in the European Parliament. It explores the paradoxical situation of Eurosceptic MEPs: particularly successful during EP elections, how then, once elected, do they operate in a political system they oppose? This book analyses how Eurosceptic MEPs conceive and carry out their mandate within the institution.

Depuis l’avènement de l’État moderne au 17e siècle, l’État a connu de nombreuses évolutions. De l’idée d’État-nation en passant par celle d’État-providence, le concept s’est imposé dans nos sociétés contemporaines. Toutefois, son affirmation en tant que forme d’organisation du pouvoir politique s’accompagne également de questionnements croissants. L’État a-t-il la capacité de répondre aux enjeux nationaux et internationaux actuels ? Soumis à un grand nombre de contraintes tant internes qu’externes, dispose-t-il encore d’une marge de manœuvre ? Est-il en voie de transformation, voire de disparition ?

D’aucuns évoquaient déjà la crise de l’intégration européenne au milieu des années 1960. Les experts et les responsables ont souvent noirci le tableau et le mot a été galvaudé. Il fait désormais pleinement sens : après un processus de réforme des traités long et difficile dans les années 2000, puis une crise économique et financière qui a failli avoir raison de la zone euro, l’Union européenne est confrontée aujourd’hui à une vague d’euroscepticisme sans précédent, au retrait du Royaume-Uni et aux dérives « illibérales » de plusieurs Etats membres. Dans ce contexte, la célébration en mars 2017 des soixante ans de la signature des traités de Rome a eu un goût amer. Personne n’ose plus nier la gravité de la situation et mettre en doute la nécessité de procéder à des réformes.
 

Un nouveau chapitre d'Emilie Van Haute en collaboration avec Nicolas Sauger, « Partis politiques et systèmes partisans ».

This edited collection, in honour of the late political scientist Peter Mair, contains original chapters that are directly linked to his theoretical and/or methodological ideas and approaches.

Since the advent of the 1992 Maastricht Treaty, a key turning point in terms of the crystallisation of opposition towards the European Union (EU), Euroscepticism has become a transnational phenomenon. The term ‘Euroscepticism’ has become common political language in all EU member states and, with the advent of the Eurozone, refugee and security crises have become increasingly ‘embedded’ within European nation states.

When, why, and how are democratic institutions reformed? This is the broad question guiding this research, rooted in a context of crises of representative democracy. Core democratic rules can be understood as the formal political rules regulating the direct relationship between elites within the political system, parties, and citizens. They are therefore the cornerstone of the functioning of any political system. This book deals with the context, the motives, and the mechanisms explaining the incidence of institutional engineering in consolidated European democracies between 1990 and 2015. It is centred on the choice of political elites to use - or not to use - institutional engineering as a response to the challenges they face.

Book Chapter by Ramona Coman :  "The Resilience, Efficiency and Legitimacy of the EU’s Modes of Governance" in the volume "The crisis of the European Union" edited by Andreas Grimmel.

This book addresses the major challenges confronting the EU, analyses the consequences for the integration project, and develops fresh perspectives on the EU’s future prospects for coping with the most debated, current and upcoming issues, such as the rise of Euroscepticism or the contested idea of an ‘ever-closer union’. Renowned experts in European Studies from the fields of political science, law, economics and sociology provide an interdisciplinary perspective on the different dimensions of the EU’s crisis-laden situation and question whether the EU’s existing problem-solving mechanisms and methods are sufficient to address the imminent tasks.

What happens when the European Union sets new rules for the provision of cross-border healthcare services that once were conceived for the population living on the national territory? Does Europe destabilize national social solidarity? Do actors that govern the healthcare system further or resist the Europeanization of their national healthcare system?

Taking Austria, a prototypical Bismarckian healthcare system, as an example, this book aims at answering these questions by looking at how actors navigate between national institutional constraints and European opportunities. It presents how new rules on the provision of cross-border healthcare in the European Union have the potential of destabilizing national welfare boundaries.
Taking a sociological approach to Europeanization, it is analysed if and how actors adapt to such new rules.
Tho
An added value of the volume is to present the development of Austria's healthcare system in the "longue durée" through four political regime changes over the last 150 years, with European integration as the last wave of transformation to date. It shows that cross-border healthcare provision is already a well integrated practice; and how providers and payers of healthcare deal with European requirements and voice their policy preferences in the Brussels arena. Overall, it suggests both the flexibility and the resilience of the national models of welfare.
