How to Reform the EU Budget? A Methodological Toolkit (2009:5)
The EU budget review will enter a new phase this autumn when the European Commission presents its long-awaited proposals for budget reform.
At this seminar SIEPS will publish a new report, How to Reform the EU Budget? A Methodological Toolkit, in which EU spending is examined in detail. The multidisciplinary approach in this scrutiny of the budget combines different branches of economics with political science and the subsidiarity principle. The author arrives at detailed conclusions on EU expenditures that differ substantially from the answers provided by traditional theory.
The report is part of the research project The EU Budget and was presented at the seminar Reforming the EU Budget: Recommendations for Policy-Makers.
SIEPS carries out multidisciplinary research in current European affairs. As an independent governmental agency, we connect academic analysis and policy-making at Swedish and European levels.
