The Euro crisis and its impact on national and European social policies


  • Maria Jepsen
  • Philippe Pochet
  • Christophe Degryse


This critical working paper looks at the series of political choices, circumstances and windows of opportunity that have enabled one particular vision of the model of EU monetary union to gain acceptance. In the context of this model, political union is not considered an accessible way to manage the crisis, for the rescue of the euro is regarded as feasible only in a more competitive economy.
