10 Fact Sheets to explain Europe and the World Economic Crisis

PDF | 874 koIn English

These 10 explanatory sheets present a summary of the way the European Union has faced the challenges raised by the financial turbulence ongoing since 2007. They aim to facilitate the understanding of the context of the crisis which the Union is experiencing and to provide a panorama of the reforms adopted to face this. The first six address the world financial crisis and measures taken both internationally and on a European level to manage the effects and reduce the probability of its repetition in the future. Within the European Union these measures notably include the creation of a new structure for financial supervision and high legislative production in terms of financial regulation. The last four sheets focus on the crisis and the euro and the reform of the Economic and Monetary Union.
