The Post-Maastricht Period and Beyond
This chapter summarizes the key themes of this volume and reflects on future avenues of research regarding the new intergovernmentalism. It considers whether and how the preceding chapters speak to the six hypotheses set out in the introduction and asks whether the post-Maastricht period is here to stay. The new intergovernmentalism, it is also argued, suffers from fewer problems of generalizability compared to existing theories of integration. This is not only because the EU has become more like other regional and international organizations but also because new intergovernmental dynamics are discernible in international as well as European politics over the last two decades.
