Euro Crisis

Die Eurokrise (auch Euro-Krise) ist eine seit 2009 andauernde Krise innerhalb der Eurozone. Dabei handelt es sich um eine multiple Krise, die Aspekte einer Staatsschuldenkrise, einer Bankenkrise und einer Wirtschaftskrise aufweist. Die Bezeichnung „Eurokrise“ bezieht sich nicht auf den Außenwert des Euro, denn dieser blieb relativ stabil.Die Eurokrise resultiert aus einer Vielzahl unterschiedlicher Faktoren, deren jeweilige Gewichtung umstritten ist. Insbesondere im Fall Griechenlands steht die Entwicklung der Staatsschulden im Vorfeld der Krise im Vordergrund.

  • After the Italian Referendum

  • Putting Europe back on its feet – A timely wake-up call

    …1. Are „Eurocrats“ to blame for the bad shape of Europe? First of all, one has to ask whether „Eurocrat“ is a meaningful term at all.

    … well for the first 50 years of European integration. It is little surprise, as highlighted in the book’s introduction, that law (if not the traditions of the democratic Rechtstaat) have also been a frequent fall-back mechanism in the EU’s ‘rescue’ of the Eurozone.
