By: Michel R. Gueldry
Gueldry analyzes the substantive transformations brought upon the French state by European integration through an incremental and cumulative process generally described as "Europeanization." This restructuring is characterized by the erosion of traditional political and economic parameters, the emergence of new means and models of public action, and a general paradigmatic redefinition, including a search for renewed political legitimacy by French elite.
