This book addresses the viability of the EU economic and social model within and after the global economic crisis. It identifies four key issues which warrant further discussion and its contributions offer two perspectives on each of the four main issues: the asymmetry of the legal and policy framework of the euro and how this should be recalibrated; substantive tensions in the EU integration project between the Treaties' 'economic constitution' and the normative aims of social policy and inclusion and their impact on national policy, the role of civil society, including the two sides of industry in overcoming these tensions and the EU's global aspirations towards the creation of a viable socio-economic model.In drawing these debates together, the book provides a broad understanding as well as starting points for future research. Bringing together different disciplinary approaches, ranging from legal studies to political economy, sociology and macroeconomics, it is a valuable contribution to the debate on the European social model and introduces new insights by focusing on legal and political tensions, the impact of the financial crisis and other economic contexts as well as global dimensions.
