The Law of the Economic and Monetary Union

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganisation and participation in conferences, workshops, courses, seminars


The financial and sovereign debt crises forced the European Union to adopt a series of measures to avoid the extremely damaging consequences of unprecedented economic challenges. Aware of this development, lawyers have engaged on the doctrinal analysis of the plethora of EU legal acts and international treaties adopted. Legal debates have primarily revolved around their validity according to primary EU law, discussing from a constitutional theory viewpoint to what extent they constitute a rupture with, a departure from, or a continuation with the pre-crisis EMU rules. The aim of this workshop is to go beyond those discussions and to explore, whatever the constitutional status of the new measures is, what are the implications (if there are) of the post-crisis EU macroeconomic law for the EU legal order. In other words, the objective is to determine to what extent the post-crisis EU macroeconomic law has affected the EU legal order by establishing new priorities, principles or mechanisms alien to pre-crisis European integration.
