In this study, an international and multidisciplinary team take stock of the promise and shortfalls of 'Social Europe' today, examining the response to the Eurocrisis, the past decade of social policy in the image of the Lisbon Agenda, and the politics that derailed a more Delorsian Europe from ever emerging.

L'arrivée au pouvoir d'un gouvernement nationaliste conservateur, remettant en cause les "valeurs européennes" et l'équilibre des pouvoirs, a remis la Pologne sur le devant de la scène. L'ouvrage donne la parole aux chercheurs polonais. Ceux-ci tentent d'expliquer les profondes évolutions que la société polonaise a connues, après la chute du communisme, dans divers domaines (rôle de l'Eglise, question agraire, politique étrangère, débat sur l'Histoire).

Making use of a unique data set that includes more than 1000 leadership elections from over 100 parties in 14 countries over an almost 50 year period, this volume provides the first comprehensive, comparative examination of how parties choose their leaders and the impact of the different decisions they make in this regard.

One of the key shifts in contemporary politics is the trend towards greater personalization. Collective actors such as political parties are losing relevance. Citizens are slowly dealigning from these actors, and individual politicians are therefore growing in importance in elections, in government, within parties, and in media reporting of politics.

S’initier à la science politique peut être trompeur. La politique est en effet omniprésente. Il ne se passe pas un journal parlé ou un journal télévisé sans qu’il y soit fait référence de manière plus ou moins marquée. Ce faisant, l’idée d’un rapport de proximité, de simplicité et de connaissance intuitive de la discipline peut s’insinuer. Il y a pourtant loin de la coupe aux lèvres.

Whatever happened to Social Europe? The promise of Jacques Delors seems to have spawned a flurry of European Union directives, yet has since fizzled out. This edited volume, bringing together a team of international interdisciplinary experts from across Europe, systematically explores the EU's social policy activities, both before and after the Eurocrisis. The contributors examine how and why the great expectations remained unfulfilled, but also move the scholarly debate beyond the emphasis on courts and markets.

L’Europe traverse actuellement une crise profonde et complexe, qui affecte tant l’Union européenne que les États qui la composent. Dans ce contexte, il est crucial de comprendre les systèmes politiques différents qui structurent, directement et indirectement, la vie de plus de 500 millions de citoyens.

At first, it was believed that accession to the EU would have a positive effect on the process of democratization in former communist countries. However, over time it became clear that difficulties with the democratic system endured in a number of these countries.

This book presents the findings of the first ever survey of the religious preferences of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). An international research team interviewed a large sample of MEPs, with the purpose of investigating their beliefs and how these beliefs have an impact on their role as MEPs.

With the advent of the Eurozone crisis, Euroscepticism has become increasingly mainstreamed. This is discernible across Europe at the level of public opinion, among political parties and civil society groups, within the EU institutions themselves and in terms of changing and more challenging media discourses. Against the backdrop of the 2014 European elections and a potential referendum on UK membership of the EU, the purpose of this article is to introduce an evolving debate.
