The Nice Treaty and the Irish Referendum: What Values are at Stake?
AbstractThe purpose of this paper is primarily to highlight the issue of values in the European Union (EU) in terms of its practices as opposed to official rhetoric. The debate surrounding the Treaty of Nice, the context in which the Irish referendum took place and the political reaction to its rejection by the Irish electorate, all raise challenging questions about the conduct of meaningful democracy within the EU.
