Solidarity in the European Union in Times of Economic Crisis


The present special issue of Perspectives on Federalism reflects on the nature and characteristics of solidarity within a supranational context, it explains what solidarity has meant so far in the EU, how much solidarity we had during the crisis, what type of solidarity is needed and how to build it. It focuses on the new economic governance and its solidarity mechanisms during and after the economic crisis but tackles other related fields such as its impact on services of general economic interest or the European budget, as well as other areas where solidarity is also discussed such as the free movement of persons.

This monographic issue has its origin in the International Conference “Solidarity in Hard Times. Solidarity and the European Social Model in times of economic crisis” organized by the University Institute for European Studies (IDEE) on 11-12 June 2015 in Madrid, within the Jean Monnet Network MoreEU (“More Europe to overcome the crisis”).

The Two Noble Kinsmen: Internal and Legal Transparency in the WTO and Their Connection to Preferential and Regional Trade Agreements

resorted to trade deals outside, with other like-minded parties. In the last decade, news on world trade has been dominated by the discussions on Mega-Regionals, and the WTO no longer is as newsworthy. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the European Union (EU)-Canada Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) have been, for better and for worse, in the front page of major world newspapers, while the recent WTO Ministerial in Nairobi barely made it to any newspapers at all. In the WTO, transparency
