• Preface

  • Europe today is facing a multi-faceted crisis which has struck not only the continent’s economy, social systems, its politics, and democracy, but also the legitimacy of European integration and the values it stands for. The fact that a transnational entity such as the EU is pulled by the centripetal and centrifugal forces of its contradictions is nothing new, and it is not particularly alarming in itself. However, the European crisis, which broke out in 2008, and neoliberal austerity policies have exacerbated contradictions within and between the European states in a way that has caused ruptures of historic proportions.
