The EU budget after 2020

Författare: Begg Iain

Brexit will be a major factor influencing the negotiations on the new Multi-annual Financial Framework (MFF), which will set the rules for the EU budget in the next couple of years starting in 2021.

Drawing on various recent contributions to the debate on the future of Europe, this European Policy Analysis reviews likely demands for reform of the budget and how they might be accommodated in the next MFF. Three scenarios – status quo, moderate reform and radical reconfiguration of public finances in the EU – are analysed, from which predictions are made about likely outcomes.
