The ongoing Erozone crisis has already transformed the EU in profound ways, and this process of transformation is almost certain to containue and grow even more contentious and difficult in the future.  The papers on this panel examine some of the most salient changes in the form and operation of the EU and their implications for European economic and social policies, the allocation of the costs of the crisis and consequent economic adjustments, and the internal EU procedural and policy making changes.
