The future of economic governance in the EU: And where does this leave Britain?

The eurozone crisis remains the decisive issue of the day. It splits political families, divides societies and heavily affects all of our economies.  Yet, debates over vital pillars of economic governance and the future of European union are currently locked in confrontation and paralysis.

This new Policy Network publication marks a serious attempt to break free from this damaging polarisation and identify common ground on where sensible economics and political reality can join forces.

Parameters of a crisis, Richard Corbett
