Vestert Borger speaks at conference ‘Governing through funding in the EU’
On 15 and 16 May, Vestert Borger participated in the conference ‘Governing through funding in the EU’. The conference was organised by Lilian Tsourdi and Marijn van der Sluis, who are both affiliated with Maastricht University.
The conference was devoted to the fact that the European Union increasingly seeks to govern through financial mechanisms like the coronavirus relief fund NextGenerationEU. In his presentation, Vestert Borger spoke about the Multiannual Financial Framework. He examined what its negotiation teaches about how the European Union itself is governed and how this compares to contemporary systems of government.
