This book provides reflections on and visions of the European Union and its future. The latter is a central concern that threads through all chapters and contributions, thereby taking a critical stance on conventional theories and main stream views of European integration. Different developmental scenarios and dimensions of the EU project are discussed. The authors approach the question of «future» from a variety of perspectives and theoretical convictions. Accordingly, the results portray a number of possibilities of how Europe could look in two or three decades, depending on the underlying assumptions of the different analysis. The European Union as seen through this book is not an entity carved in stone, but a contingent political process with open – although not random – outcomes.
