This volume presents the first thorough sociologically-informed legal analysis of the financial crisis which unfolded in 2008. It combines a multitude of theoretically informed analyses of the causes, dynamics and reactions to the crisis and contextualises these within the general structural transformations characterising contemporary society. It furthermore explores the constitutional implications of the crisis and suggests concrete changes to the constitutional set-up of contemporary society. Although the question of individual responsibility is of crucial importance, the central idea animating the volume is that the crisis cannot be reduced to a mere failure of risk perception and management for which individual and collective actors within and outside of financial organisations are responsible. The 2008 crisis should rather be understood as a symptom of far deeper structural transformations. For example contemporary society is characterised by massive accelerations in the speed with which societal processes are reproduced as well as radical expansions in the level of globalisation. These transformations have, however, been asymmetrical in nature insofar as the economic system has outpaced its legal and political counterparts. The future capability of legal and political systems to influence economic reproduction processes is therefore conditioned by equally radical transformations of their respective operational forms and self-understanding. Potentially the 2008 crisis, therefore, has far-reaching constitutional implications.

Following the financial and public debt crisis, the EU's Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) has been under intense political scrutiny. The measures adopted in response to the crisis have granted additional powers to the EU (and national) authorities, the exercise of which can have massive implications for the economies of the Member States, financial institutions and, of course, citizens. The following questions arise: how can we hold accountable those institutions that are exercising power at the national and EU level? What is the appropriate level, type and degree of accountability and transparency that should be involved in the development of the EU's governance structures in the areas of fiscal and economic governance and the Banking Union? What is the role of parliaments and courts in holding those institutions accountable for the exercise of their duties? Is the revised EMU framework democratically legitimate? How can we bridge the gap between the citizens - and the institutions that represent them - and those institutions that are making these important decisions in the field of economic and monetary policy? This book principally examines the mechanisms for political and legal accountability in the EMU and the Banking Union. It examines the implications that the reforms of EU economic governance have had for the locus and strength of executive power in the Union, as well as the role of parliaments (and other political fora) and courts in holding the institutions acting in this area accountable for the exercise of their tasks. It further sets out several proposals regarding transparency, accountability, and legitimacy in the EMU.

The euro area sovereign debt crisis has been the greatest threat to the euro since its inception, but the consequences of the crisis go beyond the realm of macroeconomics: the crisis has had important consequences for the constitutional order of the EU and its Member States, and it has cast doubt on the future of the European Union as a political project in the face of citizens' growing disaffection. This monograph focuses on the euroarea crisis and its aftermath from a constitutional perspective. It provides a critical analysis of the workings and evolution of Economic and Monetary Union, the changes brought by the crisis and theirbroader effects, and the constitutional obstacles to integration in this area. The monograph is also forward looking, as it tackles the uncertain future of economic and fiscal integration. This is a compelling and incisive account of some of the most significant developments and dilemmas facing the European Union since its creation.

I argue that the hybrid presidential system entails advantages that have been overlooked by the current literature. Although I do not campaign for any ideally "best" institutional models for other new democracies to emulate, a shift of mind that escapes the constraints of contemporary conventional wisdom would help reorient theoretical debate over this important issue. This realistic account of institutional choices that emphasizes politics, paradoxes, coincidences, and structurally constrained or induced choices, adds complexity to both rational choice theorizing and institutional analysis.

This book addresses the present EU foundational dilemma by looking at the problematic relationship between the ideal model of integration and the reality of the 21st century. It discusses the current role of the EU and whether it aspires to be a democratic polity or a functional organization based on inter-governmental bargaining and explores the ways and extent to which the present European crisis could create a politico-legal space for new possibilities and opportunities for action.
