INTRODUCTION

The upcoming book which was titled as “The Future of European Union Integration: A Failure or A Success? Future Expectations and Prospects” is making an effort in investigating the present and future developments in the European Union integration regarding challenges the EU had encountered since 2000s to 2018. During the last two decade, the European Union integration had faced several crises endangering its reason of existence including the Constitutional Crisis, 2008 Financial and Economic Crisis, Migration Crises and Brexit. In this respect, there are two different arguments that predict the future of the EU integration; while some groups think that the EU will lose its existence reason, others claims that the EU will be integrated more than before eliminating crises and rebuilding new capacities.

OBJECTIVE 

The object of the upcoming book titled as “The Future of European Union Integration: A Failure or A Success? Future Expectations and Prospects” is to evaluate the EU integration movement in the era of transformations. The transformation is a process that a structure or something was converted into something similar. As a structure, the EU had always had ability to transform itself to present day’s conditions by learning from crises. Today, the EU has experienced a depressed era endangering its existence. By this aim, the study aims to evaluate the present situation of the EU and open discussion regarding the future of the EU integration in various fields including economics and politics.
