NGEU and Vaccines Strategy in the Wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Outgrowing the Regulatory State
Caroline de la Porte, EGB and Manuele Citi, MSC have published an article regarding how the EU has managed a transnational challenge, i.e. the COVID-19 pandemic. The EU member states, despite different political and economic stances, managed to agree on a pre-emptive pandemic fund, known as Next Generation EU, and has, remarkably, coordinated vaccine purchases across the EU. Our study suggests not only that the EU has ‘Outgrown’ the ‘Regulatory State’, but also, that the EU is increasingly dealing with transnational challenges, which cannot be adequately dealt with by member states on their own. The article is available (open access publication) here.
