In his current work, develops an alternative model for the systematic examination of European integration, by stressing the importance of asymmetric power of the Member States. As it demonstrated by the Eurozone crisis, through the existence of asymmetric relationships the powerful Member States may dominate the less powerful. Asymmetry seems to alter the very concept of European integration transforming every aspect of the integration process. European integration becomes the means, and the EU becomes the arena, within which the powerful Member States dominate the less powerful through the dynamics of asymmetry.
