SOCIOLOGICKÁ REFLEXE EVROPSKÉ INTEGRACE
Sociology of European integration
Languages of publication
European integration is increasingly becoming a subject of sociological researches and scientific studies. This study is based on default premise, that the EU’s influence on societies and policy in each member country increases more and more. The competence of the EU institutions is growing in individual EU policies, and in addition we can see a certain pressure on (not often undefined) „Europeanism“ even on the civil level. The main question of this study therefore is: does the contemporary sociology reflect this new situation enough and does the sociology of European integration already exist? What are the key questions and problems that are discussed? What theoretical perspectives and methodological procedures are applied here and who are the main representatives and theorists of this sociology of the European integration? The answers are searched here with taking account of the macro- and micro-sociological approaches, especially in the matters of the scope and of theoretical and methodological paradigms, strong institucionalization and literary base and uniform disciplinary self-definition.
