Eclecticism is the hallmark of this book. This is illustrated by the nature of the articles and the profiles of the writers. A quick glance at the table of contents clearly indicates this aspect:
from a reflection on secularism in Europe, diplomacy of influence through to religious beliefs, geopolitical issues, Community law, financial regulation, immigration and defence; the outlook offered by this study is highly varied.
Also varied are the profiles of the writers of this book: a lawyer (Jean Michel Quillardet), a senior official (Max Brisson), lecturers-researchers (Denis Aubin, Marc Delachaussée, Dominique Jean Renou), a journalist (Genci Burimi), legal professionals (Muriel Assouline, Bruno Szwajcer), an honorary divisional commissioner of the national police (Michel Lepoix), were sought as an expression of the profound educational vocation of the FEDE.
