Highlights - Consequences of the crisis - key publications by the Policy Departments - Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs
16-06-2014 02:55 PM
Parliament’s Policy Departments have prepared a number of publications in
relation to the crisis and its consequences. A wide range of issues are
discussed, from the social effects of the crisis, to the impacts of the
recession on public spending. The publications not only focus on the direct
repercussions of the crisis (on employment, living conditions, mental health,
SMEs, etc.), they also deal with its indirect outcomes, namely the reforms
introduced at EU and national levels and the new instruments set up as a
response to the crisis. The analysis goes even beyond: it is shown that, above
all, the economic downturn has modified the way of considering policies and has
raised fundamental issues such as EU governance. A selection of these
publications is available here.
