Conversation with Beate Sissenich on the EU

July 11, 2011

Associated Faculty member Beate Sissenich, an Assistant Professor in the Political Science Department at IU, is featured in a recent profile on WFIU. Dr. Sissenich discusses the history, present functioning, and potential future of the European Union in an interview with program host Owen Johnson. This broadcast is the latest in WFIU’s Profile series. Here is an excerpt from the interview, which you can listen to here:

The European Union I think ultimately is probably best understood as a phenomenon all on its own, that shares some DNA perhaps with international organizations such as NATO or NAFTA or the UN. But really goes much further in terms of restricting national sovereignty and in terms of requiring countries to abandon their national laws in favor of accepting rulings from Luxembourg, where the European Court of Justice is located.
