In this issue, Vjeran Katunarić writes about two different sociological paradigms of social evolution and about a culturally sustainable development which, as their hybrid, positively overcomes their inherent tensions. From a juridical perspective, Ivona Ondelj looks at the principle of solidarity within insurance schemes competing on the market in the European Union. Hang Nguyen takes a detailed look at the politics of the Nixon administration towards the European Union and its project of integration.
