  • Arno TAUSCH

    (Department of Political Science, Innsbruck University)

Table of Contents: List of abbreviations (functional terms) List of Tables List of Graphs 1) Introduction 2) The theoretical framework: what can policy-makers know about the ascent and decline in the world economy? 3) The international environment is basically unstable. A survey of the contemporary research methods for the study of changes in the world system since 1989 4) Problem number 1: Europe is characterised by the typical 'mix' of conditions that lead to stagnation 5) Problem number 2: Europe must come to terms with the 'new' social problems arising from the contradictions of the process of the global environmental destruction, to which Europe as one of the main regions of world industry and traffic, disproportionately contributes, and Europe must find a proper way for gender empowerment 6) Problem number 3: Europe must come to terms with the contradictions of world cultures and world cultural conflict, global anarchy and global decay 7) Problem number 4: Europe must come to terms with the contradictions between Europe, the developed centre, and its Eastern European periphery, and the problems of political instability, nationalism, and unequal development, that the present form of interaction between the centre and the periphery bring about 8) Problem number 5: Europe must come to terms with the contradictions of the process of the ageing of democracies, especially phenomena which one might term sclerosis bruxelliana and sclerosis Europea 9) Transnational Integration and National Disintegration - A Synthesis Appendix Bibliography Index
