Assessing the Eurogroup's informal working method

Assessing the Eurogroup's informal working method

(p.140) 6 Assessing the Eurogroup's informal working method
The Eurogroup

Uwe Puetter

Manchester University Press

This chapter evaluates empirical findings in the context of the analytical framework of this book. It assesses the potential of the Eurogroup's informal working method to foster consensus-oriented policy deliberation among the euro area's top decision-makers. It reviews the features of the particular negotiation setting constituted by the Eurogroup. In a similar fashion, it discusses whether the specific content of Eurogroup discussions is compatible with a deliberative style of discussion. Moreover, the discussion reflects on the outcome of informal debates. Finally, it contrasts these findings with the prevailing pattern of official Council negotiations, which represent the key framework for intergovernmental decision-making at the EU level.

Keywords:   informal method, EU, top decision-makers, negotiation setting, Eurogroup
