01-07-2017

Economic governance refers to the system of institutions and procedures established to achieve Union objectives in the economic field, namely the coordination of economic policies to promote economic and social progress for the EU and its citizens. The financial, fiscal and economic crises that began in 2008 showed that the EU needed a more effective model of economic governance than the economic and fiscal coordination in force until then.

Economic governance refers to the system of institutions and procedures established to achieve Union objectives in the economic field, namely the coordination of economic policies to promote economic and social progress for the EU and its citizens. The financial, fiscal and economic crises that began in 2008 showed that the EU needed a more effective model of economic governance than the economic and fiscal coordination in force until then. Developments in economic governance include reinforced coordination and surveillance of both fiscal and macroeconomic policies and the setting-up of a framework for the management of financial crises.

The EU framework for fiscal policies

01-07-2017

To ensure the stability of the Economic and Monetary Union, the framework for avoiding unsustainable public finances needs to be strong. A reform (part of the ‘Six-Pack’) amending the Stability and Growth Pact entered into force at the end of 2011. Another one, the intergovernmental Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance (TSCG), including the Fiscal Compact, entered into force early 2013. A regulation on assessing national draft budgetary plans (part of the ‘Two-Pack’) entered into force ...

Macroeconomic surveillance

01-07-2017

Over the past decade, the EU has experienced major macroeconomic imbalances (which emphasised the negative effects of the financial crisis that began in 2008) and serious divergences in competitiveness (which prevented the effective use of common monetary policy measures). In 2011 the Macroeconomic Imbalance Procedure (MIP) was set up – a surveillance and enforcement procedure aimed at facilitating early identification and correction of such imbalances in Member States, paying specific attention ...

There are specific measures in place to support the development of the most remote regions of the European Union, known as the outermost regions: Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Réunion, Martinique, Mayotte and Saint-Martin (France), the Azores and Madeira (Portugal), and the Canary Islands (Spain).

Passenger rights

01-07-2017

Common rules have been drawn up in an effort to ensure that passengers receive at least a minimum level of assistance in the event of serious delays to or cancellation of their journey, irrespective of the mode of transport used, and, in particular, to protect more vulnerable travellers. The rules also provide for compensation schemes. A wide range of derogations may be granted for rail and road transport services, however, and court actions challenging the application of the rules are still common ...

Air transport: Civil aviation security

01-07-2017

Aviation security (not to be confused with aviation safety[1]) exists to prevent malicious acts against aircraft and their passengers and crew. Following the terrible attacks of 2001, the EU has adopted a set of security rules for safeguarding civil aviation. These rules are regularly updated to address evolving risks. Member States retain the right to apply more stringent measures.
