Democratizing the European Union: Issues for the Twenty-first Century

Front Cover
Manchester University Press, 2000 - Political Science - 212 pages
The European Union's "democratic deficit," and ways that might be found to resolve it, are important issues in both academic debate and practical politics. This book offers a fresh approach to the subject by bringing together a diverse range of authors who have been actively involved either in analyzing the activities of the EU or in participating in them. It goes beyond a primarily institutional approach by highlighting the less obvious barriers to participation experienced by those campaigning for the rights of disadvantaged groups.
