The extraordinary crisis in the eurozone poses an unprecedented challenge to the integrity of the European Union (EU). The International Institutions and Global Governance (IIGG) program asked experts on both sides of the Atlantic to assess its immediate and long-term implications for the continent's political and economic future. We were particularly interested in its likely impact on the future of the "European project"; on the shape of the European economy; on the attractiveness of the EU model of European integration; and on the EU's future as a global player. As the authors explored these questions, several fascinating themes emerged.
