The EU’s Response to the Euro Crisis – [INFOGRAPHIC]

The Institute of International and European Affairs (IIEA) recently released an informative Infographic entitled “The European Union’s Response to the Euro Crisis”. It provides and overview of many of the EU’s actions taken to date to tackle the crisis and provides an overview of some policies still under discussion e.g the Fiscal compact.

The infographic is fairly comprehensive in its presentation of data, which rather detracts from any narrative regarding the response to the crisis. Nevertheless, it represents a smorgasbord of policy actions, rules and ideas implemented over the last few years.
