"This edited collection provides a valuable addition to the literature on conflicts of sovereignty in Europe. The elaboration and exemplification of different types of sovereignty conflict, foundational, institutional and territorial, is illuminating. The book will be read with interest by scholars from a variety of disciplines relating to Europe and the EU."
Paul Craig, Emeritus Professor of English Law, St John’s College, Cambridge University
"Politics has always been about allocation of power. As nation states struggle to perform their traditional functions, their authority is bound to be questioned. This book provides numerous insightful illustrations of sovereignty claims by a diverse set of actors, such as nationalist parties, irredentist movements, regions and the EU. In a multi-level polity such as the EU, which is based on the notion of shared sovereignty, conflicts can be very contentious; Brexit is a key manifestation of this. This book should be read by all students who wish to grasp the evolving nature of European politics."
Jan Zielonka, Professor of European Politics, University of Oxford and Venice, Ca Foscari
