Euro-Krise, »Flüchtlingskrise«, »Brexit« – die EU befindet sich an einem historischen Scheideweg. Nachdem es jahrzehntelang den Anschein hatte, die »Verwirklichung einer immer engeren Union der Völker Europas« sei nur eine Frage der Zeit, stellen unvorhergesehene Ereignisse die Logik der Integration infrage. Nationale Interessen rücken in den Vordergrund, das Ringen um gemeinsame Lösungen wird immer verzweifelter. Luuk van Middelaar, ein exzellenter Kenner der Brüsseler Praxis, verwandelt eine vermeintlich trockene Materie in den Stoff einer faszinierenden Erzählung. Beginnend mit dem 18. April 1951, als die Vertreter der sechs Gründerstaaten im französischen Außenministerium am Quai d’Orsay den Vertrag über die Errichtung der Montanunion unterzeichneten, schildert er die wichtigsten Etappen – und Krisen – auf dem Weg vom Kontinent zur Union. Er lässt die Atmosphäre dramatischer Gipfelnächte lebendig werden, zeigt, wie Politiker immer wieder versucht haben, die Öffentlichkeit von Europa zu überzeugen, und erinnert uns daran, welch einmaliges historisches Projekt aktuell auf dem Spiel steht.

The Changing World of Outdoor Learning in Europe sets out to provide a comprehensive analysis of the economical and political changes that have occurred in European outdoor culture in the preceding two decades, from a diverse range of perspectives including institutional, theoretical, national and educational views. The book looks at how outdoor education has been transformed into an increasingly global field where established and influenced practices have been introduced into modernising and democratising nations. With contributions from the members of the board of the European Institute of Outdoor Adventure Eduation and Experiential Learning and representatives of the networks that stand behind it, this unique book provides thorough factual analyses and examinations of outdoor learning that have never been presented before. The book contains contributions from across Europe, with authors from the UK, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Slovenia, Poland, Norway and the Czech Republic. Chapters within the volume by non - European authors provide another perspective on the European story in a wider context. As a whole, the book will stimulate the ongoing debate about the nature, function and organisation of outdoor education around the globe. The Changing World of Outdoor Learning in Europe will be of great interest to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of outdoor education, leadership and recreation; and outdoor, sport, environmental and leisure studies. It should also be essential reading for those involved in outdoor organisations in Europe and worldwide.

As financial turmoil in Europe preoccupies political leaders and global markets, it becomes more important than ever to understand the forces that underpin the European Union, hold it together and drive it forward. This timely book provides a gripping account of the realities of power politics among European states and between their leaders. Drawing on long experience working behind the scenes, Luuk van Middelaar captures the dynamics and tensions shaping the European Union from its origins until today. It is a story of unexpected events and twists of fate, bold vision and sheer necessity, told from the perspective of the keyplayers – from de Gaulle to Havel, Thatcher to Merkel. Van Middelaar cuts through the institutional complexity by exploring the unforeseen outcomes of decisive moments and focusing on the quest for public legitimacy. As a first-hand witness to the day-to-day actions and decisions of Europe’s leaders, the author provides a vivid narrative of the crises and compromises that united a continent. By revisiting the past, he sheds fresh light on the present state of European unification and offers insights into what the future may hold.

HauptbeschreibungThe current relationship between the Nordic countries and the European Union appears complex and confusing. Although Denmark, in 1973, and Sweden and Finland, in 1995, joined the European Union, the entry of Norway into the Union was rejected in the plebiscites of 1972 and 1994. Furthermore, Nordic EU members enjoy permanent exceptions to their integration into the EU: Denmark and Sweden, like the U.K., have declined to become part of the monetary union. Finland is essentially the only Nordic country that entered the EU without substantial exceptions. A membership bid from Iceland was unthinkable; after the fi nancial crisis - which is not the topic of this book - Iceland applied for membership in 2010 and has been in discussions with the European Commission ever since. In other words: the European Union divides Nordic societies, which has resulted in a series of national exceptions to the integration process. Taken together, these exceptions have created an integration process whose overall geometry is contradictory and paradoxical. Considering this melange, this book will discuss the actual state of Nordic integration into the EU from many different perspectives and illuminate future developments in the fi eld of integration. Where is the North relative to Europe today? How can the geometry of Northern Europe's integration, developed over a long time, be characterised? What are the challenges that threaten further development of Nordic-European relationships?

Nach dem großen Erfolg der „Deutschlandsaga“ sowohl als ZDF-Serie wie als Sachbuchbestseller weiten Peter Arens und Stefan Brauburger den Blick auf Europa. Sie laden zu einer Zeit- und Erkundungsreise durch seine vielfältig verwobene Geschichte ein, werfen Blicke auf das gewaltige kulturelle Erbe, die unterschiedlichen Traditionen und spüren den Befindlichkeiten nach. Sie geben Auskunft zu Fragen wie: Woher kommt die Idee des gemeinsamen Europa, was hält das transnationale Gebilde zusammen, was trennt uns von anderen? Wie kann ein Miteinander für die rund halbe Milliarde EU-Europäer künftig aussehen? Oder drohen die aktuellen Konfliktherde die Wertegemeinschaft und den größten Staatenverbund der Welt zu sprengen?
