Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What role does "Europe" have in defining, maintaining, constructing, or remedying sex discrimination?  This question guides an investigation into the origins, institutions, and policies associated with the European Union and its recent efforts to stem violence against women, sex trafficking, racism and heterosexism. 

Exploring the politics of the EU and the integration process through a lens of social (in)equality, Sexual Equality in an Integrated Europe keeps us current while offering an innovative means of addressing state sovereignty, transnational power, intergovernmental prowess, transparency, and social change.
