The UK and the EU: Managing the Euro and the Single Market
The renegotiation of British membership of the European Union has reopened fundamental questions about how the EU can function as both a single market and as an institution in which some countries pursue greater integration while others opt out.
This workshop will consider how the EU can continue to function effectively as a single market and how the euro area can continue to pursue necessary further integration while protecting the interests of both the ‘In’ and ‘Out’ camps. The proposals put forward by Donald Tusk have set out 'principles to ensure mutual respect' between the euro area ‘Ins’ and ‘Outs’. While there is broad support for these principles, many of the details remain open to interpretation and dispute. This discussion aims to produce greater clarity on what this settlement might look like in practice.
