View: 8933Does the European Union really matter to British policy? For some it is a leading light, for others an irrelevancy. Given the uneven and evolving nature of EU policy, how can we evaluate its overall impact? This book is the first to combine a clear and detailed introduction to the new science of complexity and its application to social policy, Europeanisation, globalisation and the EU-UK relationship. It includes a detailed review of four key policy areas: employment, labour, gender and monetary relations. "Integrating UK and European Social Policy" provides groundbreaking reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of politics, history, international relations, economics, social policy and applied social science. It is also useful for academics with an interest in European social policy, and policy makers and shapers, including government and non-government organisations.
