What's the Cost of Europe?
Europa Briefing: EU Budget

 

In the publication series “Europa briefing”, our colleagues from “Repair and Prepare: Strengthen the Euro“, a joint project between the Bertelsmann Stiftung and the Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin, cover key topics of European politics and present possible scenarios. What is the problem? What might happen next? And what can politics do now? Each week, we will present one of these briefings for you on this blog. Alternatively, you can click here to find all the Europa briefings on the website of the project.

And what ideas are there for a more transparent and effective budget?
