After the storm

After the storm



In his years as president of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy met with an impressive series of leading thinkers to discuss the future of Europe. He set the bar high by asking them to tell him something he had not heard before. The philosophers, economists, political scientists and legal experts who took up his invitation met the challenge brilliantly. In openhearted and stimulating discussions, they expressed both fears and hopes for the European project at a point when Europe, with the euro crisis, found itself in a raging storm. At the request of the president, some of these thinkers have now put their ideas and solutions on paper. Herman Van Rompuy has written the introductory essay. The central, topical theme of this collection is the democratic legitimacy of Europe and its institutions. Where one sees too little European democracy, another sees too much Brussels presumption. The euro crisis exposed the tension between democracy and a currency union, and between the nation states of the EU. The nationalist refexes that accompany these tensions are visible today in a new and dangerous storm that is indirectly addressed in the book: the migration crisis. All this makes After the Storm indispensable reading for anyone concerned about Europe.

Dovetailing Economics and Political Science

Dovetailing Economics and Political Science




Nienke de Deugd

Dovetailing Economics and Political Science points to the enduring relevance of the concepts of ontology and epistemology, as well as to the paramount importance of the paradigms of Mercantilism, Liberalism, Structuralism, and the Critical and Postmodern schools of thought. If one is to make sense of the tensions that typify the relations between states and markets in the present-day international system, one should avoid getting lost in the jungle of competing and/or overlapping theories, but instead take a step back and focus on the ideal types that paradigms offer. This book takes that angle of incidence and therefore provides added value for undergraduate students interested in International Political Economy. Dr. Nienke de Deugd (1977) is assistant professor of International Political Economy at the University of Groningen (Department of International Relations). She studied History and International Relations and received her PhD in Arts (2005) for a dissertation on Ukraine and the issue of participation with the Euro-Atlantic security community. Her research focuses on European integration and transition processes in Eastern Europe. Prof. dr. Herman W. Hoen (1960) holds a chair in International Political Economy at the University of Groningen (Department of International Relations). In 1992, he received a PhD in Economics. He was visiting professor at the Georg August University (Göttingen) and Bilkent University (Ankara) and published extensively on the political economy of transition from a centrally planned to a market economy in Eastern Europe.

Rival Kurdish movements in Turkey




Mustafa Gürbüz

This book explores the conditions that encourage non-violent civic engagement in emerging civil societies. Gürbüz examines the radical transformations over the past decade in the politics of Turkey's Kurdish minority. On the eve of the new millennium, the Turkish state was still openly denying the existence of Kurds, calling them "mountain Turks," and Kurdish populated cities were ruled under martial law. Kurdish politics in Turkey was dominated by a revolutionary movement, the PKK, which engaged in violent clashes with the state. Less than a decade later, the PKK's rebellion had all but ended, and Kurdish political and civic movements of numerous stripes had emerged. The Turkish state even introduced an official Kurdish-language TV channel. How did this rapid change occur? Gürbüz proposes that contending social movements has transformed the politics of the region, ushering in an era of post-conflict political and cultural competition.

Richard T. Griffiths

This book collects contributions by Richard T. Griffiths on the history of European integration, some published for the first time in English. The essays range in chronology from the early experiences with the Marshall Plan to the shortcomings in the design and execution of the EU’s economic and monetary union. The book interprets European integration far wider than simply the current European Union and its forerunners. Thus, it devotes chapters to EFTA, the OECD, and to issues as agriculture, cartels and monetary problems. The volume also contains the essay in the title which poses the question of what would have happened had there been no Schuman Plan back in 1950. This book should appeal to students of contemporary history, especially those interested in EU history, and to political scientists who will discover a rich palette of case studies upon which to test their theories. Its constructively critical slant on developments provides interesting perspectives to those general readers seeking a nuanced approach between the extremes of the current pro- or anti- in the debates on Europe. Richard T. Griffiths is emeritus professor of Economic and Social History at Leiden University and former director of European Union Studies within the Humanities Faculty. He also lectures at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok. “I have long wished that something like this would be available […]. The collection is marked by an outstanding talent for disentangling complex historical processes and to illustrate key issues quite briefly. The author takes great pleasure in debunking myths, not the least those created by fellow historians, and he does so with great skill and remarkably little malice.” Prof. Helge Ø. Pharo, University of Oslo, Norway
