What is Kobo Super Points?
Currently not compatible with Amazon Kindle. Europe has changed radically since and continues to change at great speed. This book deals with the principle problems and challenges confronting Europe in the aftermath of the Cold War and the collapse of European communism. Whilst endeavouring to strike a balance between East, West, North and South, the volume is more concerned with the changing political, economic and cultural morphology of Europe, and of the relations within it, than with the formal institutional arrangements of the European Community and its successor, the European Union. There are already numerous books on the institutional development of the EU, but relatively few with a wider compass and institutional interpretations of European integration.
Eastern Europe warns against EU 'disintegration'
The book shows that the study of European integration should be taken in the round, avoiding a narrow and self-centered concern with the development of the 'lesser Europe' of the EU. It demonstrates that integration should be seen as neither an inexorable predetermined process, nor as an automatic consequence of high levels of economic interdependence, but rather as something that proceeds in fits and starts and sometimes suffers reverses.

The prime ministers again reiterated that a "more significant and definite role" should be given to national parliaments to "enhance legitimacy of the EU decision-making process". Szydlo called on European Council chief Donald Tusk, whose re-election Szydlo's government does not support, to ensure that EU reforms are agreed before the Rome summit on 25 March.
At the Rome summit, leaders are expected to outline a common vision for the future of the EU after the UK leaves the bloc.
Among the five proposals outlined by Juncker as a preparation for Rome, one called for a multi-speed Europe, in which those countries that want to have a closer and deeper cooperation could move on, while others can pick and chose if they want to join. That could pit the Visegrad countries, which have been reluctant to participate in the relocation of asylum seekers in Europe, and some founding countries against each other in Rome over whether a multi-speed Europe is the way to go. Visegrad countries receive substantial EU funding to help develop their poorer regions, but the feeling that they were "second class" EU countries has lingered in political discourse ever since they joined the bloc in Poland and Hungary have been criticised over rule of law issues, in what the two governments see as Western lecturing.
Hungary's prime minister Viktor Orban has argued that EU funding to the east benefits Western companies as well. Recently, a scandal over different food quality in the east and west also become a sensitive political issue. At their Warsaw meeting the four prime ministers came out strongly against the "double standards" in food quality, because some firms used cheaper ingredients in food stuff sold in central and eastern Europe than in the west. Slovak PM Fico said the different standards in food quality are "unacceptable", and send a "dangerous political message".
The EU commission has launched five different scenarios on the make-up of the European Union by EU summit must take into account "different levels of ambitions", with deeper integration for core groups of member states, Germany and France say.

Malta's prime minister Joseph Muscat said that Pope Francis has "the skills and vision" to inspire the EU and that some EU countries should integrate more to be able to act. For the first time since a series of clashes the 'Visegrad' premiers and the EU Commission president will sit down for dinner together on Wednesday.
Their aim: to set a new tone. The French president, who is hosting a meeting with the German, Italian and Spanish leaders, says that EU countries must be able to integrate further on economy, defence or research and calls for a eurozone budget. These developments will largely determine who will be running the world in the coming decades and perhaps generations. If the Europeans can't find an answer over the five years, they will be toast.
