(p.117) 5 Democratic Governance
Europe as Empire

Jan Zielonka (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines major challenges to democratic governance. It finds that the enlarged EU is more likely to opt for neo-medieval rather than neo-Westphalian solutions, and shows that the Union is likely to have a more multi-layered and multi-centered governance structure. Various non-majoritarian institutions are likely to dominate over a weak European parliament(s). Neither the assertion of a European demos nor consolidation of a European public space is expected.

Keywords:   European enlargement, empire, government, European parliament
