This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts covered in the preceding chapters of this book. The book examines whether tourism can be considered an instrument of European integration, investigating how tourist flows contribute to cultural convergence and highlighting the role of tourism in European integration. It analyses the many contradictions characterising the European Union (EU) transport policy as an effective facilitator of the EU’s principle of free movement, while at the same time, this increased traffic has contributed to congestion and pollution. The book focuses on European law, the Eurozone and the common foreign and security policy or the common agricultural policy. It identifies three categories for tangible fields of European integration, with contributions focusing on internal dimensions of EU policies; external dimensions of EU policies; and EU policies with primarily global dimensions, such as climate policies.
