Academic debates on the prospects of the European integration process thrive. They depict the bottom-up dynamics that nurture the EU today. Here, developments in the EU members states, changing attitudes to the very idea of European integration, benevolent attitude of large parts of the society to the foundational values and principles of the EU, and several other issues define the beat of the discussion. As questions of security return to the mainstream debates on the EU, and liberal political, economic and social order can no longer taken for granted in the EU, it is imperative to rethink these two ways of thinking and debating about the EU and the European integration process.

· Prospects of European integration
· Safety and security in the EU,
· External relations of the EU,
