‘European integration: the final frontier’ co-edited by Paul Stephenson

A volume on European Space Policy co-edited by Paul Stephenson with Thomas Hoerber of the ESSCA School of Management has just been published. The book brings together the research output of a network of 16 scholars that has grown steadily over the last five years with support from the University Association for Contemporary Union Studies (UACES)

Space policy is a burgeoning field. A key aim was to mainstream the study of the field within European Studies.

Space policy is at the cutting edge of current EU policy developments and is a fascinating object of study, involving multiple and diverse actors. It is also an original and contemporary lens for studying European policy-making.

The book explores advances in European space policy and their significance for European integration. Using a โ€˜framingโ€™ methodology, it addresses central questions in European studies in order to form an interdisciplinary bridge between current research in space policy and contemporary European political studies. It assesses the interests of EU institutions in space and how these institutions perceive space policy.

Furthermore, it demonstrates that space is a cross-cutting policy domain affecting a diverse range of EU policy fields, such as security, transport and migration, and underpinning the 21st century European and global economy. In doing so, this volume firmly locates space policy in the field of European Studies.

The innovative volume will be of key interest to students and scholars of a range of policy areas including common foreign and security policy, technology policy, transport policy, internal market policies, environmental policy, development aid and disaster-risk management, as well as the EU institutions.
