Yearbook of European Integration 2005

The Yearbook of European Integration published by the Institute for European Politics (IEP) in Berlin documents and balances the European integration process from 1980 to the present.

The Anniversary Volume 2005 focuses on two outstanding issues: With the accession of ten new member states, the EU has carried out the greatest enlargement in its history, and at the same time the ratifi­cation crisis of the European Consti­tution disrupted the EU´s newly attained self-awareness.

In the contents of more than 70 articles the authors trace devel­op­ments in European politics in their particular field of research priority in the reporting period 2004/2005. They supply infor­mation on the work of the EU insti­tu­tions, the devel­op­ments of different policy areas in the EU, Europe’s role in global politics and the member and candidate states’ European policy. An encom­passing collection of links, a bibli­og­raphy and a chronology complement the volume.
