ECFR this week: 26th October

Blog



This week we published the 10th in our series of national papers looking at the internal dynamics of the euro crisis within individual EU member states. In Denmark caught between ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ Lykke Friis and Jonas Parello-Plesner remind us that Denmark is in fact one of the founding fathers of a two-speed Europe. But difficult choices lie ahead as the euro crisis is challenging the status quo of Denmark’s EU membership:

“Will Denmark use the new dynamic in the Eurozone to abandon the current ‘half-in; half-out’ status, and begin making a popular case for an eventual referendum on joining the euro? Or will it, through events in the UK and in the Eurozone, be pushed to the outer layer of EU-membership and accept a dilution of its influence?”
