In the post war years European integration was driven by nation states attempting to stimulate economic growth and social cohesion through European trade and cooperation. The results were prosperous, and unified Western European societies were based on full employment and redistributive welfare states. However, in today's Europe - a Europe subject to increasing international competition fuelled by both economic and cultural globalization - the European social model needs to be re-examined, yet its emphasis on cohesion remains crucial for the future of Europe as a unified polity.

Investigating this issue in depth, this outstanding collection is divided into three key sections. These parts:

* ask how recent developments have changed the old European model of employment and social protection, and outline a possible new European social model
* focus on the questions of European identity and European borders, with special emphasis on cultural divisions such as ethnicity
* concentrate on institutions such as citizenship and language, and reflect on sociology's ability to address European integration and the new European social order.

Will Europe Work? brings together some of the leading names in European sociology to look at the construction of this new European social order through changing patterns of employment and Welfare and changing definitions of citizenship and identity.
