The Struggle for Europe's Constitution

by Andrew Duff

The Struggle for Europe's Constitution Synopsis

Andrew Duff MEP was a leading member of the European Convention which produced the first draft of the European Union's controversial Constitution. In this important new book, he analyses the Convention's successes and failures, and he describes the final negotiations and their outcome. Andrew Duff believes that a durable constitutional settlement is vital for the future of Europe. He explains how the Constitution would strengthen the EU at home and abroad. The rejection of the Constitution by French and Dutch voters makes more, not less urgent this agenda for building a more democratic and effective Union. In this timely book, Andrew Duff urges Europe's leaders not to abandon the worthwhile proposals put forward by the European Convention. He suggests how the Union could emerge from its current political crisis by undertaking a judicious renegotiation of the Constitution designed to overcome the difficulties surrounding the ratification process. This is the first book in English to get to grips with the European Constitution, and Andrew Duff is the first participant to argue for the rescue of the project.
