Blog "Why Does Europe Need a Banking Union?"

By Rasa Zukaite, CEUCE Intern
As the financial crisis evolved and turned into the Eurozone debt crisis, it became clear that, for those countries which shared the euro and were even more interdependent, a deeper integration of the banking system was needed. That is why, in June 2012, Heads of State and Government agreed to create a banking union, completing the economic and monetary union, and allowing for centralized application of EU-wide rules for banks in the euro area (and any non-euro Member States that would want to join).

Call for Papers - Critical Reflections on the EU in Crisis

Date: 
Thursday, March 19, 2015 - 4:15pm to Friday, March 20, 2015 - 4:15pm

Dalhousie University's department of Political Science is calling for papers for the Annual Political Science Graduate Symposium, "Critical Reflections on the European Union in Crisis." The current state of the European Union appears precarious. Reoccurring currency issues, increasingly insecure borders, economic stagnation, difficulties in migration flows, volatile politics, and waning public support for the Union, among other problems, have all given rise to debates over the future course of the world’s most ambitious supranational project. Scholars and practitioners are invited to critically reflect on these issues by examining ways we can learn from the European Union’s failures and successes and better identify best practices going forward.
