Driven primarily by political concerns to secure democracy, Portugal’s accession to the EU in 1986 also served as a catalyst for dynamic economic development following a complex process of democratization and the decolonization of Europe’s last empire. This book analyses how the European Union has helped shape the political process in Portugal on key institutions, elites, and its citizen’s attitudes.
