The Euro zone crisis exposed weakness in the administrational structure of EU Member States, particularly those financially most vulnerable. When receiving financial assistance from the EU and the IMF, domestic administrations have faced a new legal and institutional landscape. They had to negotiate with the Troika and implement the corresponding Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) under the pressure of strict deadlines and “conditionality” clauses. This seminar will assess how “debtor” EU Member States faced the challenges of coordination, implemented the structural reforms required in the MoU and more generally, how they re positioned themselves in the European arena. From a comparative and multidisciplinary perspective, the panelists will discuss the outcome of the Euro zone crisis in terms of redistribution and centralization of political power within domestic governing frameworks.
