POL101 NOTES FROM MARCH 11, 2013
LECTURE: THE END OF THE NATION STATE
Nationalism: industrial society: only makes sense in the industrial era but are we in that era still?
Cycle that will pas
Alliances are shifting to something above the state
EU: make sure that Europe doesn’t fight again. Not through Federalism (shared sovereignty) but through
everyday things (Steel and Coal Company): regulate and unite war making (Germans need to be in polite
company and the French need the econ)
Contradictions: couldn’t only do it because needs output thus made a union with the East Econ
Company and Euratom treaty (57) The members numbers have increased and has its own
institutions (EU):
Euro commission (Euro bureaucracy), council (represented not elected but most
powerful), Parliament (elected), ad Euro court of Justice (all nations acts have to agree
with the treaties they have signed as countries are like courts and treaties like
constitutions)
What is the EU: this sets: inter-governments logics (treaty delegates power to EU and all
acts must agree) (EU laws expand borders, econs, thus agents in Brussels appointed)
and spillover logic (couldn’t do that as it would effect my economy too. Need to co-op in
all areas. EU gets rid of tariffs and thus common import prices and currency) which are
discussed in Brussels and thus this is above the state
Single Market Currency: designed as a compromise
Greece in debt what to prevent it: design flaw:
1. How can the EU have a common currency without a common treasury?
2. A common Treasury without a common budget?
