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.

  • The Ljubljana Initiative for Re-Launching the European Integration

    … It is a sign of unconventional times when earnest people wish you a less exciting year 2017 compared to the one that has just, luckily, passed.

Whereas technocratic authority in the EU has tended to rest on theoretical knowledge, typically rooted in a science of economics, here one sees emphasis on a form of practical knowledge or ‘emergency…

Joerges to join them and others in a reflection on the European project triggered by their book, ‘The End of the Eurocrats’ Dream: Adjusting to European Diversity’.

    … about it. Similarly, Otmar Issing, the first chief economist of the ECB, recently warned in the Central Banking journal, the EU cannot go on endlessly its usual political way of “muddling through, struggling from one crisis to the next”.

  • 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.

  • The Future of the EU between Independence and Interdependence

    … 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. The arrival in quick succession of the three major crises of the EU’s history have…

  • The End of the Eurocrats’ Dream

    … dreamlike the response offered by the Eurodemocrats to build a pan- or trans-European democracy, though not all the commentators completely concur.
