Europa Perspectives on the EU Single Market

About the Series

Europa Perspectives on the EU Single Market

The EU Single Market series, edited by Christian Schweiger, examines the key challenges and the future perspectives for the EU Single Market under the fundamentally altered parameters which have emerged in the aftermath of the global financial crisis, the eurozone sovereign debt crisis and the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the EU. Contributions to the series concentrate on analysing changes in the Single Market and eurozone governance architecture, in the national varieties of capitalism, as well as the multiple levels of the deepening internal political and economic differentiation, especially the altered political and economic parameters of the Single Market after Brexit. The series aims to comprise monographs and jointly edited collections which fall into these categories, but they are not expected to be restricted to any of them, and volumes may encompass both regional and country-specific studies in the wider context of the subject area.

Christian Schweiger is Visiting Professor at the Chair for Comparative European Governance Systems in the Institute for Political Science at Chemnitz University of Technology in Germany. His research concentrates on the comparative study of political systems, economies and welfare states of the member states of the European Union (particularly the UK, Germany and transformation in the CEE countries), the political economy of the EU Single Market, economic globalisation and transatlantic relations. His most recent publications include the monograph Exploring the EU's Legitimacy Crisis: The Dark Heart of Europe (Edward Elgar, 2016) and the jointly edited collections Core-periphery Relations in the European Union: Power and conflict in a dualist political economy (Routledge, 2016, with José M. Magone and Brigid Laffan) and Central and Eastern Europe in the EU: Challenges and Perspectives Under Crisis Conditions (Routledge 2018, with Anna Visvizi).
