Καζάκος Πάνος

Έτοιμη για το μέλλον;

Η Ευρώπη μετά
την αναθεώρηση των συνθηκών

Το βιβλίο αυτό εξετάζει, πρώτον, τις αλλαγές που επιφέρει η Μεταρρυθμιστική Συνθήκη στους κανόνες της ευρωπαϊκής ενοποίησης και, δεύτερον, τις πιθανές επιπτώσεις της σε πολιτικές και συσχετισμούς! Αναδεικνύει ευκρινώς μόνιμα ευρωπαϊκά διλήμματα σχετικά με – το οικονομικό μοντέλο (φιλελεύθερη Ευρώπη» έναντι «ευρωπαϊκού κοινωνικού μοντέλου»), – τη στρατηγική ασφαλείας («ειρηνική» (civilian) ή «στρατιωτική» δύναμη) και – την ταυτότητα της αυριανής Ευρώπης, που έχουν τη θέση τους σε ένα ανοιχτό διάλογο. Εξετάζονται επίσης τα ερωτήματα αν και πως οι απαντήσεις της Μεταρρυθμιστικής Συνθήκης θα επηρεάσουν τη θέση της Ελλάδας στο θεσμικό σύστημα της Ένωσης, την εξωτερική της ασφάλεια, τις οικονομικές πολιτικές της και τις ροές πόρων.
