The Governance Report 2015

Editor: Hertie School of Governance

Published by Oxford University Press

After years of ad hoc crisis management, is the European Union on the right track? Can the European project maintain its role as a political model? What internal and external obstacles exist? The Governance Report 2015 takes an interdisciplinary approach to explore some of these questions, including how stability in the eurozone and the full integration of the European single market can be achieved, how new methods for consultation and decision-making have influenced the legal and institutional framework of the EU, and how crisis management has affected the Union’s legitimacy. The concept of exploratory governance, introduced in this Report, offers an approach to understand the complexities of decision-making processes in the wake of the euro crisis. In addition, a set of governance indicators measuring the convergence or divergence of EU member states in key outcomes over time can help to inform policy and analysis. Ultimately, the Report seeks answers to the question of what can make the European Union succeed, fail, or muddle through from a governance perspective.

Beyond the Crisis: The Governance of Europe's Economic, Political, and Legal Transformation

Editors: Mark Dawson, Henrik Enderlein, and Christian Joerges

Published by Oxford University Press

The euro crisis, the steps taken to manage it, and the resulting transformations have triggered a necessary process of reconsidering economic governance in the European Union. This volume examines the many open political, legal, and economic questions related to the functioning and fundamental structure of the Union as a whole and the economic and monetary union in particular. The contributions to this collection bring the perspectives of different academic disciplines to bear on the functional aspects of economic governance, the institutional transformations that have taken place, and their implications for the Union’s legitimacy. A separate chapter looks at inequalities in perceptions of economic conditions within the European Union to identify trends, particularly during the eurozone crisis. In doing so, the chapters in this volume take stock of the current situation, shed light on the dilemmas and challenges that must be recognised and addressed, and explore options for the way ahead.
