The Making of a Lopsided Union: Economic Integration in the European Economic Community, 1957-1992
EURECON is a research project (2017-2023) financed by €1.5 million Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). It is often said that the euro has faults of conception. But how did this happen? How was the euro made in such a way that it nearly completely overlooked some critical aspects of monetary unions? The goal of the EURECON project is to explore European policymakers’ views about how to make the organisation of the European Economic Community (EEC) fit for the creation of a single currency, from 1957 to 1992. The project looks at the origins of the issues that are currently bedevilling the EU by investigating the period between the creation of the EEC in 1957 and the decision to create a European single currency in 1992.
