Wesley Murphy Leithner Pols 383 1/17/11 AO #3 1. Neofunctionalism’s key concept is that of spillover, which refers to cooperation in one area, will result in the cooperation in another. The spillover has to do with societal groups and their role in integration. Intergovernmentalism is the theory of European integration, which advocates reducing the role of the supranational institutions and gives a greater to the European Council. 2. Thinking back on the development of European integration, intergovernmentalism makes more sense to me because it is the role of the state and national interest that explain European integration. Events such as the negotiation of the Treaty of Rome, the consolidation of the common market, the Common Agriculture Policy and the European Monetary System were all a result of national economic interest.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
