The authors engage a dialogue between European integration theories and gender studies. The contributions illustrate where and how gender scholarship has made creative use of integration theories and thus contributes to a vivid theoretical debate. The chapters are designed to make gender scholarship more visible to integration theory and, in this way stimulates the broader theoretical debates. Investigating the whole range of integration theory with a gender lens, the authors illustrate if and how gender scholarship has made or can make creative use of integration theories.
The process of European integration has always been accompanied by theory-building. A wide range of integration theories, from classical theories such as federalism, neofunctionalism, and intergovernmentalism to more recent approaches such as multi-level governance, critical theory, neoinstitutionalism, and Europeanization, as well as sociological, legal and social constructivist perspectives, continue to define the theoretical landscape. Despite their diversity, these theories share a basic neglect, i.e. the theoretical implications of the relationship between European integration and the restructuring of gender relations in European member states. At the same time, a rich body of gender studies on the EU and European integration has evolved; yet, this literature has generally neglected to engage with theorizing integration itself. The authors take these blind spots as a starting point and initiate a dialogue between European integration theories and gender studies. Investigating the whole range of integration theory with a gender lens, the authors illustrate if and how gender scholarship has made or can make creative use of integration theories.
