The Lisbon Agenda aims to prepare Europe for globalization by updating European policies for research, innovation, competition, trade, employment, education, social protection, environment and energy at both the European and national levels. Designed to inspire the new cycle of the Lisbon Agenda until 2010 and beyond, this timely and significant volume explores the intellectual elaboration of the agenda for the coming years. With contributions from some of Europe's leading scholars, this book explores new developments in the European agenda for globalization, addressing four critical areas: European policies, their adaptation to national diversity in Europe, their implications for the external action of the European Union and, finally, their implications for EU governance. This book presents the outcome of an organized dialogue between the political and research communities. Europe, Globalization and the Lisbon Agenda will undoubtedly prove an outstanding addition to the current literature and will be an invaluable resource for European policy-makers, governments and academics from a wide range of disciplines who are concerned about the future competitiveness of Europe.

`The book's structure assists in its overall effectiveness in analyzing the complexities and challenges of the Lisbon Agenda. The presentation is clear and the style is generally quite lively, even for readers unfamiliar with the thematic. Thanks to the diversity of academic and cultural backgrounds of the authors, the book manages to strike a balance between political, sociological and economic analyzes. As such, the interdisciplinary approach is refreshingly welcome as it is reflecting the general philosophy of the Lisbon Agenda and provides a more in-depth analysis of each dimension of the Lisbon Strategy.' -- Vivien Sierens, Central European Journal of International and Security Studies
`This edited volume by Maria Joao Rodrigues is a welcome addition to the existing body of literature on the European Union (EU). The book focuses on the implementation of the Lisbon Agenda and its implications for European internal policies, for EU external actions and for the EU governance system. . . the book, while useful for anyone who wants to read a general overview of the Lisbon Agenda and its political significance, is also highly recommended to policy-makers and practitioners interested in evaluating the achievements of the Agenda to date and analysing possible options for the future.' -- Journal of Contemporary Studies
