Fully revised and updated throughout, Theorizing European Integration 2nd edition provides a comprehensive introduction to the theoretical study of European integration. Combining perspectives from international relations, comparative politics and social and political theory, Dimitris N. Chryssochoou offers a complete overview of the many competing approaches that have sought to capture and explain the evolving political nature of the European Union (EU) and its qualitative transition from a union of states to a polity in its own right.

Contemporary issues, themes and theories addressed include:

  • the different uses and current state of EU theorizing
  • statecentric accounts of integration and their critics
  • new normative challenges to the study of the EU
  • the political dynamics of European treaty reform
  • new forms of democracy, citizenship and governance
  • the limits and possibilities of EU constitutionalism
  • interdisciplinary understandings of EU polityhood
  • the introduction of a theory of organized synarchy
  • the transformations of state sovereignty in late modern Europe.
