Europe’s recovery strategy to the COVID-19 crisis (Thibaud Deruelle)

By Thibaud Deruelle

Europe is among the most affected regions in the world by the spread of COVID-19 and the continent’s recovery strategy to the crisis seems to be threatened by a lack of solidarity. This paper analyses how the European Union (EU) governance system has – so far – conditioned the construction of a modest coordinated European response to the crisis. It suggests that COVID-19 is a learning opportunity rather than a make-or-break event. Crises in the EU are important catalysts of change and offer a propitious context for policy learning.
