Competition, Cooperation and the Social Dimension: Reviewing the 1992 Proposals

  • Stuart Holland

Abstract

Since its foundation the European Economic Community has been rather like the Holy Roman Empire, of which it was once said that in practice it was neither holy, nor Roman, nor an empire. Likewise, for some time, the EEC indeed was neither wholly European, nor genuinely economic, nor a community. Rather, it was an association of Western European countries, dominated by a common agricultural policy, and divided over what to do next.
