Newly available in paperback, this book is about the impact of European governance on the time of national policymakers and institutions. It shows how a new temporal logic has developed and the effect of this on EU and EU member state institutions.

This book brings a fresh and innovative approach to the study of change in Europe. Traditional studies of European governance and integration mainly deal with spatial aspects such as sovereignty, borders and networks. Ekengren shows how new rhythms and demands on timing and a strong focus on the present have changed the decision-making process and transformed policy-planning and the view of the political 'future'. He indicates that it is in the dimension of time that European governance is most clearly expressed. By applying different theories of time to European governance, he throws new light on the study of Europe.

Due to its innovative theoretical approach, this book is highly suitable for post-graduates, academics and researchers in European politics and governance. -- .
