The Crisis of 'the Crisis of Europe'

Azmanova, Albena (2017) The Crisis of 'the Crisis of Europe'. In: Amin, Ash and Lewis, Philip, eds. European Union and Disunion: Reflections on European Identity. British Academy, London, pp. 41-46. ISBN 978-0-85672-620-0. (KAR id:70927)


This is a contribution to a symposium at the British Academy on 4 November 2016 to discuss Europe after Brexit. I argue that although Brexit had much to do with the neoliberal policy package that triggered the 2008-2009 social and economic meltdown, the policies of crisis management have transformed the crisis into a new normal -- a phenomenon I call 'crisis-of-crisis'. To exit this conundrum, we need to tackle the massive economic and social uncertainty through building what I call a 'political economy of trust'.
