In this second of the series Dwarfing of Europe? publication, we turn to the so-called ‘emerging economies’. At a time when the European Union – and indeed the whole continent – is going through an identity crisis that goes much deeper than the financial crisis, Europe can no longer reflect on itself just by looking inwards. This collection of essays sheds new light on Europe’s many dilemmas and, by broadening the debate, encourages new understanding of the fundamental issues underlying these dilemmas.
