Southern Europe in the EU Study Group


The economic crisis in the Eurozone has revealed new fissures between debtor and creditor states in the EU and has led to talk of center-periphery dynamics. This Study Group explores perspectives from the Southern European debtor countries, including Italy, Spain and Portugal, relevant to current debates about the future of Europe. It considers the political, social and economic consequences of the Eurozone crisis, including high unemployment, a dramatic crisis of legitimacy, and the rise of new forms of populism.
