Yearbook of European Integration 2011

The Yearbook of European Integration published by the Institute for European Politics (IEP) in Berlin documents and balances the European integration process from since 1980 to the present. The result of 31 years of continuous work is a uniquely compre­hensive account of European contem­porary history.

The “Yearbook of European Integration 2011” continues that tradition. In the contents of more than 90 articles the authors trace devel­op­ments in European politics in their particular field of research priority in the reporting period 2010/2011. 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.

Key issues in the Yearbook of European Integration 2011 are the questions raised by the financial and economic crisis and the struggle for European answers to those questions.

The Yearbook of European Integration is a project of the Institute for European Politics (IEP), Berlin, realized in cooper­ation with the Center for Applied Policy Research at the University of Munich and the Jean Monnet Chair for Political Science, University of Cologne.
