This presentation investigates the causes and consequences of the Eurozone economic crisis, focusing in particular on the periphery – Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland. It traces the origins of the crisis in the institutional architecture of the Eurozone, as well as member state failures, and argues that the underlying causes that led to the crisis have not been addressed. It also considers the implications of continued fragilities in the Eurozone, both for these countries and for European integration more generally. Although EU headlines have moved on, the Eurozone construction remains fragile to the next economic downturn.
