EPRS invites leading experts and commentators to share their thinking and insights on important features of the European Union as a political and economic system. In this paper, Iain Begg, Professorial Research Fellow at the London School of Economics (LSE), reflects on the distinctive characteristics of the EU as the world's leading exemplar of regional economic integration, and its unique experience since the 1950s in generating collective public goods for its Member States as a foundation for ...

This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the AFCO Committee, provides an overview of transparency and integrity-related elements in the current EU setting, covering both substantive elements (including, in particular, conflict of interest and revolving-doors) as well as the body in charge of ethical control and guidance.

Strategic sovereignty for Europe

Briefing 11-09-2020

The current coronavirus pandemic has exposed the vulnerability of the European Union to external actors, and has enhanced its progress towards 'strategic sovereignty'. This notion signifies the ability to act autonomously, to rely on one's own resources in key strategic areas and to cooperate with partners whenever needed. To fully develop such strategic sovereignty, the EU needs to show political will and strengthen its capacity to act. It has to give up its silo approach to policies and address ...

The coronavirus crisis has further underlined the need for a more cohesive European Union (EU). Previous ideas about how best to link the levels of the EU's system of multilevel governance have become even more important, while new paths of cooperation have been opened by changes triggered by the crisis itself. Every level of governance, from the EU to the local, via the national and regional levels, has been affected by the crisis and all are involved in the response. This crisis has shown that ...

Die meisten Historiker und Politikwissenschaftler, die sich mit der europäischen Integration beschäftigen, sind sich darin einig, dass Jacques Delors, der von 1985 bis 1995 Präsident der Europäischen Kommission war, der bisher erfolgreichste Inhaber dieses Amtes ist. Zu seiner Agenda und seinen Leistungen zählen der EU-Binnenmarkt, die Einheitliche Europäische Akte, die Wirtschafts- und Währungsunion (WWU) sowie die schnelle Integration der früheren Deutschen Demokratischen Republik in die Europäische ...

European economic recovery

Briefing 03-07-2020

A more united Europe has the potential to deliver greater benefits for its citizens, more effectively and efficiently, by offering a level of strategic scale and depth that no individual Member State, or even group of Member States, can achieve on their own. In particular, the combination of Europe's single market and economic and monetary union, used to their full potential and complemented by progress in other policy areas, such as the Green Deal, could prove to be key assets for a strong European ...

Economic and monetary union

Briefing 02-07-2020

Launched almost three decades ago, economic and monetary union (EMU) represents a very important step in the process of European economic integration. However, the recent sovereign debt crisis highlighted its incomplete design and some inherent instabilities. A series of measures were therefore taken to deepen EMU and thereby to increase its resilience. They can be grouped in three main categories: monetary measures, measures intended to complete the single market, and measures aimed at strengthening ...

A roadmap to completing the Banking Union

Eingehende Analyse 19-06-2020

Completing the Banking Union has been a long term endeavour, on the back of the less successful negotiations on its third leg - the common deposit guarantee scheme. The current crisis caused by the outbreak of COVID-19 will evidently put the current setup of Banking Union to test, but may also create a new impetus and political will for it’s completion. This briefing, based on two earlier EGOV briefings (here and here), (1) sets out the main milestones of such process so far, (2) outlines where work ...

Diese Studie, die von der Fachabteilung Bürgerrechte und konstitutionelle Angelegenheiten des Europäischen Parlaments im Auftrag des AFCO-Ausschusses durchgeführt wurde, gibt einen kurzen Überblick über die akademischen Debatten zur Europäisierung sowie zur Kontroverse und Politisierung der EU und der europäischen Integration. Vor diesem Hintergrund konzentriert sie sich auf die „europäische Öffentlichkeit“, insbesondere jene, die sich auf die Medien und die Parlamente stützen. In der Studie werden ...
