Présentation des recherches

What is the impact of the new EMU economic governance at national level? How does the new macroeconomic governance of the EMU affect the implementation of structural reforms within Member States? These key questions, both for the sustainability of the EMU and the future shape of welfare states in Europe, forms the heart of my PhD thesis in political science. Building on an amended version of the 'Principal-Agent' model, I seek to explore, more specifically, how the Member States and the European Commission (EC) interact all along the European Semester, with a view to grasping the ways in which the EC influences the implementation of structural reforms at domestic level as well as how and why Member States resist to it. To this end, I plan to conduct a process-tracing analysis in combination with a fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis (fsQCA) of the implementation of Country-Specific Recommendations in the field of employment in four countries (BE, FR, IT, NL).
