This paper analyses the literature produced by legal scholarship on the eurozone crisis. It addresses questions about the main substantive issues discussed, the methodological approaches taken, the level and nature of critical legal analyses, and the main legal and policy proposals based on legal scholarship research. The paper thus studies the nature of legal writings on the eurozone crisis. This paper builds on a large number of articles published between January 2009 and September 2014 in selected leading law journals and books. Most of them are written in English, but also French, German, Italian and Dutch publications are included. A further selection has been made of articles and books that have been made subject to an in-depth study. The main focus has been on publications that not only discuss individual aspects of the eurozone crisis (such as single legal instruments, case law, treaty articles or the impact on individual member states), but that (also) make a broader (critical) analysis of the changed nature of economic and monetary union or economic governance.
