The Blurred Boundaries and Multiple Effects of European Integration and Globalisation

  • Kennet Lynggaard
Part of the Palgrave Studies in European Union Politics book series (PSEUP)

Abstract

Both European integration and globalisation are in their own rights ‘heavyweight’ concepts within the social and political science realms and have been subject to extensive definitional discussions and severe disputes. While addressing the relations between European integration and globalisation, and the consequences thereof, only adds to the weight and complexity of the issue at hand, it by no means follow that we should discard these concepts and research endeavours (see Rosamond, 2005). The global financial and economic crisis and the Arab Spring, as well as the institutional build-up of a European External Actions Service, are all recent events that in a significant way require of us to deal with the fundamental questions of how European integration contributes to, and is effected by, globalisation.
