About this title


Based on an extended agonistic pluralism perspective, this book offers a novel notion of a transnational public sphere that goes beyond the questions of whether a European public sphere exists or is possible and instead provides a solid understanding of its key features. This book offers an alternative concept of European integration based on the idea of integrative and constitutive conflicts. Not only an exploration of the emerging European public sphere, this groundbreaking book also evaluates the outcomes of the EU policies aiming to create it, as well as the trans-European networks' efforts to become a pan-European civil society. Expert contributors explore the European public sphere's contribution to democracy and present enhanced empirical knowledge of the role of supranational institutions and pan-European networks in facilitating European integration, thus challenging the liberal intergovernmentalist, neo-functionalist and multi-level governance approaches. Integration, Diversity and the Making of a European Public Sphere will be of interest to scholars and upper level students of European studies, politics and public policy. Global, regional and national civil society organizations, think tanks and media corporations will also find value in this book.


'Integration, diversity, and the European public sphere are not just concepts put together in this outstanding book - these are the most burning issues of our time. In the light of the global financial crisis, the crisis of the Eurozone, the refugee crisis and, most recently, the British exit from the European Union, observers might think that crises are the best indicators of the rise of a European public sphere. However, this thought-provoking collection of studies, edited by Hakan G. Sicakkan, offers a much deeper investigation of dimensions of the problem of a European public sphere. This book is an eye opener, and should be read by all who are interested in the future of the European idea.' --- Andras Bozoki, Central European University, Hungary
