Abstract: Driven primarily by political concerns to secure democracy, Portugal´s accession to the EU in 1986 also served as a catalyst for dynamic economic development following a complex process of democratization and the decolonization of Europe´s last empire. This book analyses how the European Union has helped shape the political process in Portugal on key institutions, elites, and its citizen´s attitudes. Please find the book here.
