European integration has become contested. People have become more critical of European policy and often seem to prefer local policy solutions in response to globalization problems. This becomes clear from the rise of Eurosceptic parties in many EU member states and it is also reflected in the results of several referendums. Earlier this year voters in the Netherlands said ‘no’ to the Association agreement with the Ukraine. In the UK, voters supported leaving the EU with a small margin.

And if not, how can we change this?
