European Integration Theory and Brexit – A Fairytale no Longer?

European Integration Theory and Brexit – A Fairytale no Longer?

The current European crisis has a dual nature, both ontological and epistemological: we are facing a crisis over the future of the European Union, severely deepened by the realization of the crisis in our understanding of Europe’s integration process. The uniqueness of this moment in time lies rather with the latter than with the former. It is a result of our flawed understanding of European integration theory. which has too long been left anchored in classic typologies and doctrines of international law and politics, and has finally rendered the evolving integration process unintelligible through its lenses.
