Conclusion: EU Integration Policy or EU Policy on Integration?

  • Pierre Georges Van Wolleghem
Part of the Palgrave Studies in European Union Politics book series (PSEUP)


Taking stock of the evidence gathered and processed throughout the book’s five empirical chapters, the conclusion answers the research question in the negative: if there may be a stammering process of Europeanization under way, talking of Europeanized integration policies as of yet is hardly sustainable. The conclusion also points out the contribution this book makes to the literature, its limits and potential research paths for students wishing to improve knowledge relating to the EU policy on integration.
