ERC-funded project EURECON – The Making of a Lopsided Union: European Economic Integration, 1957-1992

EURECON is a 5-year project financed by €1.5 million Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). The goal of the EURECON project is to explore European policymakers’ views about how to make the organisation of the European Economic Community (EEC) fit for the creation of a single currency, from 1957 to 1992. The project will examine the origins of the issues that are currently bedevilling the European Union (EU) by investigating the period between the creation of the EEC in 1957 and the decision to create a European single currency in 1992.
