The Eurocrisis and the Democratic Deficit


20 June 2012

See below for the filmed presentations from an event the Institute co-hosted with UCL School of Public Policy - as part of our EU Public Policy Series.

This featured two of the most high-profile scholars to write on the EU’s democratic deficit - Prof Giandomenico Majone (EUI) and Prof Albert Weale (UCL) - as well as Dr Richard Corbett, a member of the European Council President’s cabinet. Their presentations discussed iif Eurozone crisis management is sidelining democratic politics as both the methods and the policy content of responses to the crisis become exceedingly executive driven and technocratic.
