Britain and Europe

EU economic governance after Brexit

29 November 2016

Governing a disintegrating Europe

This brief is the second of a series drawing on the project ‘Diverging Capitalisms? Britain, the City of London and Europe’ led by Feps, Policy Network and Speri, which aims to consider the changing nature of the British economy, its place within the European economic space and the consequences of Brexit. The findings presented here take the analysis developed as part of the workshop entitled ‘Diverging Capitalisms, Part 2: Brexit and new EU economic governance’ held in London in October 2016.

In this Brief we provide new insights on how fragmented political and economic interests, both internationally and intra-nationally, have been shaping EU economic policymaking in the wake of the global financial crisis, the eurozone crisis and the UK’s referendum on EU membership.
