Overview

Collective Action in the European Union addresses fundamental questions surrounding the European political economy. The impressive array of contributors ask how and why collective action is formed at the European level.

Many of the chapters introduce fresh empirical studies, in the domains of business, the professions, consumers and environmental interests.
