The Future of the Economic and Monetary Union

Date of Editorial Board meeting: 
Publication date: 
Friday, June 15, 2018
Abstract in English: 
While there is general agreement within the euro zone that further reform is needed, there is however disagreement as to which measures should be implemented. In a nutshell, member states disagree over the balance between risk sharing and risk reduction. Risk reduction proponents place the emphasis on crisis prevention, while those who emphasise risk sharing focus on crisis mitigation. This book represents a concerted effort by four prominent scholars from France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands to summarise the discussion in those countries and analyse in which areas the member states may find common ground to press ahead with reforms. The authors have been asked to provide a background to how the euro has been perceived in their respective countries and identify which EMU reforms would be acceptable in the short- to medium-term perspective.

Remaking Europe: Framework for a policy

Abstract Original Language: 
La survie et le succès de l'Union européenne dépendent de la vitalité de la zone euro. La priorité est en conséquence de donner à celle-ci une perspective claire à 10 ou 15 ans et de la transformer progressivement en un espace réellement intégré, qu'il s'agisse des engagements nécessaires pour mettre en oeuvre des politiques économiques saines et convergentes, de la volonté de recourir aux instruments de solidarité les mieux adaptés ou de l'adoption de règles de gouvernance adéquates. Ainsi seront réunies les conditions d'une nouvelle croissance et d'un meilleur emploi.
L'Union européenne, à 28 Etats membres, doit elle aussi retrouver le chemin de la rigueur et de l'efficacité. Il convient de lui assigner quelques objectifs politiques essentiels, objectifs d'ores et déjà énoncés dans les traités et dont la mise en oeuvre concrète devrait être approuvée par tous les Etats membres : énergie et environnement, marché intérieur, défense, conditions nécessaires pour préserver la libre circulation des personnes.

Abstract in English: 
The survival and success of the European Union depend on the vitality of the Eurozone. The priority is therefore to give the Eurozone a clear perspective for the coming 10 to 15 years and gradually to transform it into a truly integrated area. This approach must embrace the commitments necessary to implement sound and convergent economic policies, a determination to embrace practical instruments of solidarity and the adoption of meaningful rules of governance. These are the keys to new economic growth and higher levels of employment.
The 28-member state European Union has too to find the path of rigour and efficiency. We should agree on a few essential political goals. These goals are already there in the treaties: their concrete implementation now has to be agreed and accepted by all Member States. Energy and the environment, the internal market, defence, and the necessary conditions for the free movement of individuals, are the key policies.
