Out in the Cold? Flexible Integration and the Political Status of Euro-Outsiders (2009:13epa)

This European Policy Analysis tests the common proposition that flexible integration imposes significant costs on those member states that opt out of further integration within specific policy fields. The analysis presents data on network capital in the working groups and committees of the Council of the EU which indicate that the Euro-outsiders are in fact doing well in the informal networking in the Council.

The analysis is part of the research project The Economic and Monetary Union.
