The article ‘When European integration becomes costly: The Euro crisis and public support for European Economic Governance’, co-authored with Florian Stoeckel (UNC Chapel Hill) has been published in Journal of European Public Policy. It can be accessed online here. 


Abstract: This article analyses preferences for European economic governance in the European sovereign debt crisis. We assess citizens' opinions on increased intergovernmental co-operation and supranational governance in the economic sphere. We argue that current efforts to tackle the euro crisis do not benefit the typical ‘winners of European integration’. Moreover, European economic governance constitutes an even greater perceived threat to national identity, especially in the member states that fare well economically. Hypotheses are tested using multilevel analysis of Eurobarometer survey wave EB 75.3 (2011).
