Abstract:

After successive waves of enlargement, the European Union (Eu) has been
struggling with political integration. The project of the
constitutionalisation of the EU was therefore launched to cater to a
growing need of institutional reform, but it also intensified debates about
the underlying conceptions, norms and values of the European polity as well
as the meanings and identities of entire Europe.

This book approaches the ongoing legal and political re-construction of the
EU through a focus on the Convention on the Future of Europe (2002-2003)
which produced a draft of the EU's first constitution. The Convention is
studied from a multidisciplinary perspective integrating approaches from
ethnography of institutions, political sociology and linguistically-based
discourse analysis. Drawing on extensive fieldwork and multiple textual
data, the book offers an inside perspective on the multitude of ways in
which politics in supranational environments works in practice. The book
also contributes to the ongoing research on the discursive
(re-)negotiations of meanings of Europe and European integration in the
institutions of the European Union.

Contents:

Constitutionalisation of the European Union - EU legitimacy and democratic
deficit - Future of Europe Debate - Case-study of the practices and culture
of consensus-building in the EU - Discursive construction of European
identities - Fieldwork at the EU's Convention on the Future of Europe -
Semi-structured interviews - Critical discourse analysis - Ethnography of
the European Union.
