The Party of European Socialists (PES) was formed in 1992, apparently marking a definitive step in the development of a real European socialist party. This book assesses how successful the PES has been in this aim and considers which of the two main models of transnational party activity - the sceptics and transnationalists - is most applicable. It includes case studies on the role the PES played during the Amsterdam and Nice Treaty negotiations.
