This edited collection seeks to present a valuable guide to the Jewish contribution to the European integration process, and to enable readers to obtain a better understanding of the unknown Jewish involvement in the European integration project. Adopting both a national and a pan-European approaches, this volume brings together the work of leading international researchers and senior practitioners to cover a wide range of topics with an interdisciplinary approach under three different parts: present challenges, Jews and pan-European identity, and unsung heroes.

Review quote

"The Jewish Contribution to European Integration is a joy to read - by highlighting and contextualizing the contribution of Europe's first true Europeans to the construction of a European consciousness, identity and latterly its contemporary institutions, it fills a little-known lacunae in European historiography and politics with superb research and insightful analysis." -- Ben Tonra, University College Dublin
