What the EU is, why it matters, how it works, and how the centre-left can use and reform it. In the first volume of the FEPS Primers Series, Richard Corbett offers readers exactly what the title promises: a comprehensive look at the history of the EU, its main policies, institutions, functioning and decision-making structures. It takes a look at areas worthy of reform, lists important centre-left figures in the EU’s founding and development, and the most important terms of EU jargon.
“This publication sums up Richard Corbett’s rich experience, producing a useful instrument for all members of the progressive family and increasing the potential of the centre-left to strengthen our common endeavour.” Enrique Barón (Former President of the European Parliament. FEPS Vice-president and Scientific Council Chair)
“A great read that answers any question you might have on the European Union and our responsibility as progressives.” Gabriele Bischoff (Member of the European Parliament, S&D Group)
“Required reading for all those who are interested in a centre-left perspective on where the European Union could be headed in the future.” András Bíró-Nagy (Political scientist, Director of Policy Solutions – Hungary)
“A key role for a think tank is to facilitate policy development across institutions and political actors, and this primer will serve as an important means of extending this crucial service of FEPS to a wider audience.” Robert Ladrech (Emeritus Professor of European Politics, Keele University, UK)
