Towards a segmented European political order

EU3D professors Jozef Bátora and John Erik Fossum presented their book and debated the EU’s present and future development as part of the EGPP seminar series. 

In addition to the editors, EU3D team leader Bátora and scientific coordinator Fossum, a number of EU3D researchers have contributed to the edited volume Towards a Segmented European Political Order.

Wednesday 16 December, Bátora and Fossum presented their book and discussed the EU’s development as part of the seminar series of the European Governance and Politics Programme (EGPP), hosted by the Robert Schuman Centre at the European University Institute in Florence. The seminar was chaired by EGPP director Daniele Caramani.

Towards a segmented European political order is directed at the debate on the EU’s present and future development. It takes as its point of departure how the range of crises and challenges over the last decade have transformed the EU and relates those findings to the discussion of an increasingly differentiated EU.

The book argues that the post-crises EU shows clear signs of becoming a segmented political order with in-built biases and constraints. It spells out the key features of such an order in ideational and structural terms and shows how this manifests itself in the EU’s institutional and constitutional make-up and in how member states constrain and condition EU action.
