Workshop on ‘Reflections on the new architecture of European economic governance’

12 Nov

Workshop on ‘Reflections on the new architecture of European economic governance’.

 Date: 27 November 2015

 Location: NUI offices, 49 Merrion Square, Dublin 2

 Time: 9.45am to 3pm 

Summary of the theme of the workshop: 

Since 2009, many articles and books have been written on the causes to the Eurozone crisis, the potential solutions as well as their consequences for European economic integration. Most of the literature has taken a liberal intergovernmentalist approach or even ‘new intergovermentalist’ stance which focuses on the prevalence of the Member States’ role in the handling of the crisis and the consequential relegation of the European Commission as an unwilling agent in manoeuvring to gain more powers. In a multi-level economic governance context which has seen the reshuffling of the power cards between the various stakeholders, this workshop has selected contributions addressing issues of power, supranational entrepreneurship and integration.
