The End of Integration by Stealth

(p.1) Introduction
Representing Europeans

Richard Rose

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book’s main themes. The book argues that the end of integration by stealth requires the EU to secure the political commitment of people who are both national and EU citizens. It asks: Who or what do EU institutions represent? How, if at all, do Europe’s citizens relate to EU institutions? What is the best way to find out whether agreements made in Brussels to advance an ever closer Union actually represent the views of their citizens? It also proposes a look-before-you-leap approach to evaluating EU policies pragmatically.

Keywords:   European Union, integration, EU policy, political commitment, European citizens
