Europe Simple, Europe Strong: The Future of European Governance
December 2001, Polity
In looking at how systems of market choice and political choice relate to each other in today's setting, the book brings together contemporary thinking on the regulatory functions of government, the role of rights-based politics in relation to vote-based politics and the relevance of models of business organisation to the organisation of government. It places special emphasis on how constitutions can be designed to promote tolerance in pluralist societies.

Raymond Plant, University of Southampton
'Frank Vibert is one of the leading advocates of a European
constitution that would emphasize the strengths of European
government, namely the capacity to set rules that reach across the
continent to secure common standards within a rapidly changing
market. The message of strength through simplicity that lies at the
heart of this book is both important and intriguing. Europe
Simple, Europe Strong is an essential read for anyone concerned
with the constitutional future of Europe.'
