Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject Sociology - Work, Profession, Education, Organisation, grade: 1,3, University of Hamburg (Institut für Soziologie), course: Oberseminar Arbeitsmärkte und Arbeitspolitiken im Länder-Vergleich, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: What has happened to the „European Dream“ - the dream of becoming a plural unity with one constitution?

After the debris, following the French “NON!“ and the Dutch „NEE!“ on the EU-referendum we can see clearly, how national preferences in instiution making diverge. Now, alternative plans are taken out of the drawers. Attempts to mobilize and to change EUcitizens opininons are being made. An interesting political process to watch.

These will be the leading questions. In the first step, I am going to summarize shortly the essence of one element of the VoC approach, that is, „The domestic sources of multilateral preferences“ elaborated by Orfeo Fioretos.

I will do this with regard to the constituent building blocks that accumulate to national preference building.This will set the basis for understanding the complexity of preference building in national states, the set of actors, and structures that partially predetermine the shape of their market economy, and how countries aim at maintaining their relative advantages. In the second step, I will give an outline about the construct and idea of innovation in general.
