This book examines a broad range of fiercely debated contemporary issues which are shaping the policy-making agenda in international relations, and particularly European affairs, in the early twenty-first century. Since the late 1980s, the EU has faced the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet bloc, followed by more than a dozen new applications for membership; the re-unification of Germany; various ethnic conflicts; a fragmenting Yugoslavia and the dramas of Bosnia and Kosovo accompanied by rising waves of refugees and immigration; and a troublesome but successful completion of Monetary Union. The impact of all this upon the continuing integration of Europe, and upon its frameworks of governance and policy-making, is evidently huge. The central theme of the book is to consider the concepts of interdependence and the effectiveness of cooperation in addressing these issues
