EU Fiscal Capacity: Legal Integration After Covid-19 and the War in Ukraine

Professor Federico Fabbrini, Founding Director of the Brexit Institute, Full Professor of EU law at the School of Law and Government, Dublin City University, and currently Fellow in Law, Ethics and Public Affairs at Princeton University, is the author of the new book “EU Fiscal Capacity: Legal Integration After Covid-19 and the War in Ukraine“. The book, published by Oxford University Press, analyses the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine from an EU law and policy perspective, addresses the effects of the pandemic and the war in Ukraine on Europe’s Economic and Monetary Union and provides a detailed legal and constitutional analysis of the ‘Next Generation EU’ Recovery Fund, explaining the political dynamics that led to its adoption. Finally, the book compares the economic integration of the EU in the aftermath of the pandemic with the US system of fiscal federalism and makes the case for permanent fiscal capacity in the EU.
