Webster Vienna Director's Book on Role of EU Agencies in Eurozone, Migration Crisis
December 03, 2020
A new book by Webster Vienna Private University professor and director Dr. Johannes Pollak examines how different EU agencies function during times of crisis management.
The book, "The Role of EU Agencies in the Eurozone and Migration Crisis - Impact and Future Challenges," was written by Pollak and Peter Slominski, assistant professor at the Department of Political Science/Centre for European Integration Research at the University of Vienna.
Pollak is professor of international relations and European Politics at Webster Vienna, as well as a senior research fellow at the Vienna Institute for Advanced Studies.
Through the case studies of the Eurozone Crisis and the European migrant crises, authors managed to outline how EU agencies can shape policy during and after crises, and how their accountability is affected by the crisis.
This book provides a wealth of empirical material to understand key aspects of EU governance including its plurality of actors and policy-making modes and its functioning during crisis management. Authored by legal scholars and political scientists, it presents new research and insights on the role of EU agencies in the context of the Euro and migration crises.
Specifically, the contributions assess why the crises have led to the creation of new EU agencies and what roles these agencies have performed since their inception; how the crisis, notably the migration crisis, has impacted on existing EU agencies; how EU agencies have shaped the policies during and after the crises; and, how the crisis has affected the accountability of EU agencies. This book is essential in understanding the intricacies of EU crisis management and the specific role of EU agencies therein, as well as EU governance more broadly.
