 Why Institutions Matter in the Eurozone
Author: Renaud Thillaye, Ludek Kouba & Andreas Sachs
Date:17 July 2014
This paper assesses the desirability and feasibility of two possible governance innovations among those currently under discussion in the Eurozone: a mechanism of wage coordination, and contractual arrangements (or ‘reform contracts’) between the EU and member states.  Beyond economic and political arguments, the paper invites commentators and policymakers to shift their focus of attention from conception to implementation.
Making Progressive Politics Work
Author: Policy Network (eds)
Date:22 April 2014
As the slow return to growth begins to gather pace in western democracies, the danger is that insufficient attention has been given to structural economic weaknesses and long-term stresses on representational politics and governance. This ranges from technological change and disruptive economic forces to growing insecurity and inequality, fragile tax systems, skills and education mismatches, polarised labour markets, uncertainty over middle income jobs, and vulnerable social security settlements.

Author: Policy Network
Date:12 December 2013
Financial services are the focal point of the debate about Britain’s future in the EU. The sovereign debt and banking crises have accelerated integration in the Eurozone, a trend often seen as alien to British interests. The position of the City as the main financial services centre in Europe has become uncertain.
Economic Governance in a Non-Federal EU
Author: Renaud Thillaye
Date:24 July 2013
The most commonly held opinion about the eurozone crisis is that it should lead to greater EU integration. Yet despite all the talk about fundamental design flaws and the need for a federal ‘leap forward’, EU governments and citizens are not ready to pool further sovereignty and resources as a way to strengthen the common currency and to improve the EU’s delivering capacity.
