Title: The Democratic Governance of the Euro
Series/Report no.: EUI RSCAS PP; 2012/08; Global Governance Programme
This policy paper includes some of the contributions for a group set up at the EUI to address the crisis of the Euro area with a focus on its democratic dimensions. The perspectives included in here are diverse and not necessarily unanimous in the solutions they propose to address the crisis. They also go from the more general issues (what is needed to save the common currency and how to legitimate it) to more concrete questions regarding particular aspects of the new governance regime that the EU has slowly been setting up for the Euro. Common to them, as mentioned, is the democratic question. What democratic challenges does this crisis raises and how to address them?
