Opening Pandora’s Box? The Crisis and the EU Institutions

Beyond the Crisis

Mark Dawson

Oxford University Press

This section of the volume discusses the ways in which the euro crisis has transformed the European Union’s constitutional and institutional structure. While the EU’s institutional set-up has often been based either on compromise between national and ideological interests, or on conflict minimisation, the crisis has severely disrupted the old consensus-based model of EU governance. Critical questions that have often been suppressed by particular aspects of the EU’s institutional design—e.g. how to reconcile national and supranational institutions; the proper role of the EU courts in regulating the economy; and the limits and scope of delegation to technocratic governance institutions—can no longer be deferred indefinitely. The Pandora’s box of integration has been opened, with few certainties as to what the constitutional structure of the EU will look like in the decades to come and as to how that structure can be held accountable.

Keywords:   EU institutions, EU courts, constitutional structure, technocratic governance, accountability, euro crisis
