French Relations with the European Union Summary


French Relations with the European Union by Helen Drake (Loughborough University, UK.)

This scholarly work examines how key actors within French politics and society have related to the challenges and opportunities posed by the European Union, and how these relations have driven or hindered change in France.

The collection invites the reader to explore below the surface image of a France troubled by its relations with the EU in the post-Cold War era, and see the dynamics of change in empirical detail. Each chapter offers insights into specific aspects of the France-EU relationship, including:

  • the characteristics of Euroscepticism a la francaise amongst the electorate and political parties
  • the dynamics of change in the political, media and legal establishments in their dealings with the EU
  • the priorities for labour, business and la vie associative in their relations with French decision-makers regarding the EU.
