European economic governance is too complex for a sufficient democratic legitimacy.

Due to latest reforms during the crisis in the euro area, European economic governance has evolved into an overly complex structure lacking sufficient democratic legitimacy. In order to give citizens more influence on European economic policy, it is necessary to better clarify responsibilities for European economic governance, make it more transparent, and simplify the institutional structures. The third paper provides seven recommendations on how to make European economic policy more accountable.
