The Yearbook of European Integration published by the Institute for European Politics (IEP) in Berlin documents and balances the European integration process from 1980 to the present. The result of 35 years of continuous work is a uniquely comprehensive account of European contemporary history.
The “Yearbook of European Integration 2015” continues that tradition. In the contents of about 100 articles the authors trace developments in European politics in their field of research priority in the reporting period 2014/15. They supply information on the work of the EU institutions, the developments of different policy areas in the EU, Europe’s role in global politics and the member and candidate states’ European policy.
The Yearbook of European Integration is a project of the Institute for European Politics, Berlin, realized in cooperation with the Center for Applied Policy Research at the University of Munich and the Jean Monnet Chair for Political Science, University of Cologne.

Issue 4/2015 of integration published
In the new issue of integration Kai Oppermann analyses the British European policy in view of the Tories’ victory in the general elections of May 2015. He addresses in particular David Cameron’s intraparty and electoral reasons to opt for a referendum on Britain’s EU membership. Michael W. Bauer and Stefan Becker provide a preliminary assessment of the Juncker Commission after its first year and evaluate its work to that effect how it uses its political room for manoeuvre in order to influence current European policy trends. Heinrich Schneider deals with the topic of European identity and discusses whether there is a decline of the European idea and the integration policy against the background of current crises. Karsten D. Voigt portrays the relationship between Russia and the West since 1991 taking into account Germany’s perspective and proposes concrete measures to improve the relations. Jéronimo L. S. Barbin’s review discusses works on the EU’s foreign policy since the coming into force of the Treaty of Lisbon. Three conference reports by the ‘Arbeitskreis Europäische Integration’ focus on current developments of the European Union after the European elections of 2014, European regulation and European fiscal policy.
