The integration of Europe over the past fifty years has been a success
story. However, considerable disagreement exists today about the future
development of the European Union, particularly in relation to the speed
and intensity of political integration, but also concerning the role to be
played by Europe in the global political system.

In this book, renowned European academics and politicians discuss the
question of whether Europe should and can be a „Global Player.“ In
particular, the following issues are raised:

Has the EU reached the status of an economic „Global Player“?

What are common European values, if any?

Can Social Democracy be the European Model?

Which are the differences and commonalities in the perception of a Common
Foreign and Security Policy?
