EU economic governance after Brexit
Governing a disintegrating Europe
This brief is the second of a series drawing on the project ‘Diverging Capitalisms? Britain, the City of London and Europe’ led by Feps, Policy Network and Speri, which aims to consider the changing nature of the British economy, its place within the European economic space and the consequences of Brexit. The findings presented here take the analysis developed as part of the workshop entitled ‘Diverging Capitalisms, Part 2: Brexit and new EU economic governance’ held in London in October 2016.
In this Brief we provide new insights on how fragmented political and economic interests, both internationally and intra-nationally, have been shaping EU economic policymaking in the wake of the global financial crisis, the eurozone crisis and the UK’s referendum on EU membership.
Analysis by Lucia Quaglia and Waltraud Schelkle, with additional research and writing by Colin Hay, Renaud Thillaye, and Daniel Bailey.
This policy brief is a product of our joint research programme with Speri and Feps and following a recent event at which the subject was debated.
