Five Years with Juncker

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The Juncker Commission set very ambitious goals upon its election in 2014. This chapter will try to assess to what extent it was successful in achieving them, with a particular focus on its investment policy and budget matters. The assessment will also take into account that the Commission was faced with unexpected crises, namely Brexit and the so-called refugee and migration crisis, which put extra pressure on it. Moreover, the assessment will consider that the Commission was confronted with a lack of consensus at European level on many key policy areas, which made the achievement of an agreement even more diffi cult.
