Fiscal Federalism in the European Union: Taking Stock and Looking Forward

5th July, Lauterpacht Centre, Cambridge

The European Union is often seen as a legislative giant on clay feet, and many would argue that one of the reasons for this feebleness is the lack of a proper fiscal capacity at the Union level. This debate needs to be placed against the background of the current state of fiscal federalism or distribution of fiscal powers between the Member States and the Union. This workshop hopes to provide a much-needed overview and critique of the current state of affairs in this area, as well as an analysis of the problematic of, and proposals for, future developments.

Workshop Conveners: Dr Alicia Hinarejos (Cambridge) & Prof Robert Schütze (Durham).
