He addresses in particular David Cameron’s intra­party and electoral reasons to opt for a refer­endum on Britain’s EU membership. Michael W.

Heinrich Schneider deals with the topic of European identity and discusses whether there is a decline of the European idea and the integration policy against the background of current crises. Karsten D. Voigt portrays the relationship between Russia and the West since 1991 taking into account Germany’s perspective and proposes concrete measures to improve the relations. Jéronimo L. S. Barbin’s review discusses works on the EU’s foreign policy since the coming into force of the Treaty of Lisbon. Three conference reports by the ‘Arbeit­skreis Europäische Integration’ focus on current devel­op­ments of the European Union after the European elections of 2014, European regulation and European fiscal policy.
