Since the break of the euro crisis in 2009, euro members have been trying to save the euro project with limited success so far. The crisis and its economic, political, institutional and social effects on the integration project, European Union (EU) members, European identity and more broadly European governance, has drawn significant attention not only from policy makers but also from academics and the media. The crisis has raised not only economic and political concerns regarding the way European policy makers have been dealing with the crisis, but also regarding the rise of euroscepticism and the future of the entire integration project. The main theme of this panel is on the different European and domestic efforts to address the euro crisis and what lessons can be drawn for European governance. The difficulties caused by the crisis have raised the necessity of a fundamental change of the intergovernmental structure of EU economic governance. As such this panel raises the following questions that will be discussed and addressed in the five papers: Is there a need for an economic governance transformation beyond the Lisbon Treaty? What insights might public management theories offer to our understanding of the euro crisis? Has the euro crisis increased or decreased the support for the EU in general and the euro in particular? How are selected EU members coping with the crisis?
