Description - The Social Construction of Europe by Thomas Christiansen
The Social Construction of Europe systematically introduces and applies a social constructivist perspective to the study of European integration. A strong international list of contributors provide new and important insights to a key area of contemporary study and research. They: carefully locate social constructivism in terms of its philosophical and methodological origins; review the wider debates and contribution of constructivist approaches to international relations; fully explore the insights that are made into European studies through a constructivist approach; offer worked examples of key research topics in European integration and EU governance using and demonstrating a variety constructivist approaches; This unique volume includes exciting new theoretical contributions to the debate by Andrew Moravcsik, Steve Smith and (writing for the first time on neofunctionalism since his seminal work in field), Ernest B. Haas.
