Michel Foucher “L’Union européenne un demi-siècle plus tard: état des lieux et scénarios de relance”

In cooperation with the ISAC Fund, the Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia has published the book by Michel Foucher L’Union européenne un demi-siècle plus tard: état des lieux et scénarios de relance, translated into Serbian by Prof. dr Predrag Simić. In the period from 2005 to 2009, as a result of the unfavourable outcome of the referenda on the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe in France and the Netherlands, and the rejection of the Lisbon Treaty in Ireland, the EU has undergone a deep institutional and political crisis. These events triggered a broad debate within the EU member states on the issues of institutional reform, and the challenges to the EU’s Economic, Enlargement and Neighbourhood policy. Michel Foucher’s book is the result of the research on this debate regarding EU’s reform and future prospects.

The publication is available in bookstores and the online store of the Official Gazette.
