Research Project

The Making of a Lopsided Union: Economic Integration in the European Economic Community, 1957-1992

The project investigates European policymakers’ views about how to make the European Economic Community (EEC) fit for a monetary union. It will thus assess the origins of the issues that are currently bedevilling the EU. From the EEC creation in 1957 to the decision to create the euro in 1992, several proposals were tabled to improve the functioning of the EEC as a possible currency area. The project intertwines international, legal, political, and economic history approaches in order to provide a thorough portrait of European policymakers’ paradigms, goals, and constraints in envisioning an economic union in a changing global context.
