European integration and gender

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


European integration is described and analysed according to a number of theoretical approaches that contribute different perspectives on the integration process. Explaining intergovernmental bargaining, analysing processes and institutions, and understanding the co-constitutive effects of integration have generated several influential explanatory theories (Kronsell 2012: 23). However, it is quite remarkable that despite a flourishing scholarly debate on the subject, awareness of the gender perspective on these conceptual frameworks is absent from these theories (Hoskyns 2004; Locher and Prügl 2009; Bieling and Diez 2016). This chapter addresses this gap.
