When the Treaty of Lisbon went into effect in December 2009, the event seemed to mark the beginning of a longer phase of institutional consolidation for the EU. Since 2010, however, the EU has faced multiple crises, which have rocked its foundations and deeply challenged the narrative of 'the end of the history of integration'. The military crisis in eastern Ukraine and the refugee crisis call for a joint approach, but in practice reveal the difficulty of maintaining even the appearance of European solidarity and political unanimity. The financial and socio-economic crisis in southern Europe and Brexit present the EU with the latest set of challenges. If seventy years of European integration have taught us anything, it is that fundamental crises as well as moments of rapid institutional change form integral parts of its history. The Unfinished History of European Integration presents the reader with historical and theoretical knowledge on which well-founded judgements can be based. This textbook on European integration history has been written as a student textbook for a bachelor's or master's programme in European integration history, as a manual for the analysis of EU sources and, finally, as an information resource for a bachelor's or master's thesis.

The primary motivation for this book is to focus on something crucial that is missing in Turkish political science: well-founded theories on the Turkish voter and empiricism in scholarly research. Given the absence of such theories, one could ask what then the best model is for explaining a Turkish citizen’s vote choice and political behaviour, and what schools of thought Turkish political science has. Unfortunately, it is not possible to offer a satisfactory response to either question at this point, and among the clear deficiencies in the current literature the primary one is the lack of a robust model explaining how Turkish citizens form their political attitudes, engage in political participation, or cast their votes. With these important questions in mind, this book aims to generate an interest in the theoretical and methodological tools that one can employ to conduct research contributing to the needs of the literature, particularly in political behaviour and political psychology. This book expands our understanding about the processes and the mechanisms of Turkish political behaviour, and contributes to the foundations of theory building in the literature. This book was published as a special issue of Turkish Studies.

Confronting Corruption in Business focuses on the contextual issues that trigger corruption to give the reader a more thorough understanding of destructive leadership. It provides students with a unique, critical perspective on issues of leadership, corruption, and policy in different countries, industries, and companies. While there isn’t a universally agreed upon definition of corruption in social sciences, it generally refers to efforts to secure wealth or power through misusing public power for private gain. This kind of destructive leadership is typically treated as an anomaly, but this book closes the gap in our understanding by highlighting the wider consequences of this behavior within business, and on an international level. Armed with this understanding, one also learns how to mitigate its causes and consequences. Edited by leading experts, the book includes contributions from scholars with international expertise on leadership, strategy, political science, finance, organizational change, and public policy. It is the first book to focus on corruption on the country level and within business, and students in international business, management, ethics, and leadership classes will find it a valuable read.

Yakinthou throws light on the challenges of adopting political settlements in frozen conflicts and divided societies by focusing on the conflict in Cyprus, the resolution of which has for years been held up, in large part by elite intransigence. The book offers answers for why elites in Cyprus are so unwilling to adopt a power-sharing solution.

Die anhaltende Euro-Krise sowie die halbherzigen, oft populistischen Reaktionen der Politik lassen ein Scheitern des europäischen Projekts derzeit als reale Möglichkeit erscheinen. In seinem Essay verteidigt Jürgen Habermas Europa gegen die sich ausbreitende Skepsis, der er ein neues überzeugendes Narrativ für die Geschichte und vor allem die Zukunft der Europäischen Union entgegensetzt. Denkblockaden in Bezug auf die Transnationalisierung der Demokratie räumt er aus dem Weg, indem er den Einigungsprozess in den langfristigen Zusammenhang der Verrechtlichung und Zivilisierung staatlicher Gewalt einordnet. An die Politik richtet Jürgen Habermas schließlich den Appell, das bisher hinter verschlossenen Türen betriebene europäische Projekt endlich auf den hemdsärmeligen Modus eines lärmend argumentierenden Meinungskampfes in der breiten Öffentlichkeit umzupolen. Neben diesem Essay zur Verfassung Europas enthält dieser Band den Aufsatz »Das Konzept der Menschenwürde und die realistische Utopie der Menschenrechte« aus dem Jahr 2010 sowie drei Interventionen, die Jürgen Habermas seit dem Ausbruch der Finanzkrise veröffentlicht hat. »Angesichts eines politisch ungesteuerten Komplexitätswachstums der Weltgesellschaft, das den Handlungsspielraum der Nationalstaaten systemisch immer weiter einschränkt, ergibt sich die Forderung, die politischen Handlungsfähigkeiten über nationale Grenzen hinaus zu erweitern, aus dem normativen Sinn der Demokratie selbst.« Jürgen Habermas
