Revolutionary changes in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union; civil strife in the Balkans; the heavy burden of German reunification; war in the Gulf and its dramatic aftermath; the completion of the internal market in 1992 and the management of two highly complicated Intergovernmental Conferences - more than ever before in its history, the European Community has to operate under strong pressure.;This volume captures these problems in a systematic way, and presents suggestions as to how the Twelve could cope with them, using the Dutch EC-Presidency as a reference point. The subject dealt with include: the EC-Presidency in a new European setting; the European Community and the wider Europe; European foreign policy and security co-operation; ""1992"" and the Common Transport Policy; economic and social cohesion in a Community of regions; the politics of Economic and Monetary Union.;The chapters are written by specialists from both the international academic world, such as economics, international relations, European law, as well as from the European institutions. Together they provide a comprehensive survey of the profound challenges confronting the EC in the early 1990s.
