The EU and the roles of member states is one of the major topics of political debate and academic discourse.

The European Union after the Treaty of Amsterdam( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The result of 30 months of negotiation and major political debates in all the member states of the EU, the Treaty of Amsterdam was signed in 1997 and came into effect in 1999. Praised as a triumph of the possible and a breakthrough in major policy areas by some, it has also attracted widespread criticism because of the reforms which have been postponed and the risks of fragmentation it introduces. Whatever its merits and deficiencies, it will have a major impact on the internal development of the EU, its role in international relations and the process of its enlargement to the Central and Eastern European countries. No area of national and European policy-making will be left untouched by the framework set by the Treaty for the development of the Union. Given both its long implications and the complexity of many of its provisions, there is an urgent demand for explanation and analysis of the place of the Treaty in the process of European integration." "In this book, a team of authors comprising practitioners - many of them involved in the negotiations - and distinguished academic experts provide such coverage. They examine the progress made and the deficits left by the Treaty in key policy areas and in the institutional system of the EU. They also look at its future development: in particular, the challenges posed by the next enlargement, the incomplete reform of the institutional system and the risks of fragmentation."--BOOK JACKET

Turkey as an energy hub? : contributions on Turkey's role in EU energy supply( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guaranteeing energy security is one of the most important challenges for Europe today. Especially since the crises in Ukraine, Europe's interest in an additional supply line of gas and oil to Europe through Turkey has been growing steadily. In both political and academic discourse the question of whether Turkey can develop into a possible future 'energy hub' is a hotly debated issue. The country's geographical position is a big advantage as more than 70 per cent of the world's oil and gas reserves are located close by. The country may thus hold a key position in the distribution of oil and gas. Will Turkey, itself almost fully dependent on imports, be capable of becoming an energy hub? This edited volume examines Turkey's prospects as a possible energy hub and in its role in the EU's energy security. The contributions it contains reflect geopolitical dynamics and interests, economic trends, and the prevailing perceptions of this issue in Turkey and the European Union.--
