Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Eurozone crisis is one of the most challenging crises facing the world, not only because of the geographic range of its impact but also because of its multidimensionality. This is reflected in the terms of its academic analysis. No comprehensive analysis is possible without bringing to bear the contribution of different disciplines of the social sciences e.g. economics, political economy, political science, international relations, political history, law, sociology, area studies. Yet, beyond the pages of the popular press, the analysis of this crisis has tended to be kept within disciplinary boundaries. This Special Issue – in keeping with the fundamental mission of this journal – attempts to overcome this deficiency by bringing together contributions from different disciplines to enhance different our understanding of the crisis and therefore lay the foundation for stronger analytical explanations and understandings through the development of multi-disciplinary perspectives.

Contributions are therefore invited in this call for papers which analyse the Eurozone crisis from any thematic angle and from any disciplinary or multi-disciplinary perspective. Ideally, papers should summarise their contribution by an emphasis on the more general significance of the discipline of which they are a part to understanding and explaining this crisis.
