ACES Affiliates recently published their newest book 'European Issues'. The book discusses different 'issues' within the EU which explain the story and the functioning of the EU.

Boekcover Het functioneren van de EU

The European Union is changing rapidly. Within and outside her borders - and everywhere in between - changes are happening, which will influence all of us in the coming years. 'European issues' presents in 45 'issues' a broad image of the history, structure and challenges of the EU like we know her nowadays.  Within 300 pages and 50 maps, you can find the much-needed background and interpretation for this election year, and all the years to come.
