Regardless of its cause, the euro crisis has transformed Europe’s economic, political, and constitutional constellation. Indeed, the present construction of the eurozone is fraught with risk and requires a quite fundamental overhaul. This introduction to the volume provides an overview of the current state of the European Union, in particular the economic and monetary union, and introduces the concept of exploratory governance as a way of thinking about policy choices made under extreme uncertainty, as has been the case during the euro crisis. The chapter then justifies the volume’s interdisciplinary approach, which goes beyond much of the existing literature by exploring changes in EU governance through distinct lenses. In this sense, the volume recognises the high interdependence of the different dimensions of both the crisis and any response to it: leaders building a renewed architecture for the eurozone require solutions that combine elements of functionality, institutional feasibility, and constitutional legitimacy.
