Book Description

The rejection of the referenda concerning the Constitutional Treaty of Europe in France and the Netherlands in 2005 showed that European integration is hampered by shortcomings in a common public sphere, democracy, and identity. The present volume explores these deficits. Newest results of empirical research show that the idea of European integration has spread within the elites but that it has not yet reached the masses.
