Overview

As a special advisor to the Prime Minister of Portugal, and Chair, Advisory Group of Social Sciences in the European Framework Program- European Union, Rodrigues (economics, U. of Lisbon) introduces issues and outcomes of the union between EU scientific and political agendas. Recognizing that a new paradigm is required for handling the new institutional architecture, these eight papers by European academics look to their region rather than the US in addressing the challenges and potential of a knowledge-based, global economy. They discuss such issues as European identity, the diversity of European welfare regimes, and benchmarking as a policy-learning tool. Appends supporting documents on new strategic goals and coordination, including the Lisbon Strategy (2000). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
