European integration continues to deepen despite major crises and attempts to take back sovereignty. A growing number of member states are reacting to a more constraining EU by negotiating opt-outs. Rebecca will discuss how sovereignty works in practice and examine the most controversial cases of differentiated integration: the British and Danish opt-outs from Economic and Monetary Union and European policies on borders, asylum, migration, internal security and justice. Drawing on over one hundred interviews with national representatives and EU officials, Rebecca will show how national representatives manage the stigma of opting out, allowing them to influence even political sensitive areas covered by their opt-outs.
