The Eurozone Crisis in the Shade of the Maastricht and Lisbon Treaties
The financial crisis in the eurozone has created a kind of discursive window through which a renewed self‑reflection on the shape on the European integration can be traced. The crisis, its depth and course, has confirmed what previously could only be speculated on the edge of European discourse, namely the fact that the chosen model of deepening the economic and monetary union is not ideologically and class neutral. It therefore generates new decisive conditions about who becomes the beneficiary and the loser, where new centres and peripheries crystallize in this process. The purpose of this article is to use the crisis in the euro area to look at its structure, identify the most important intellectual and ideological assumptions underlying it, indicate how the legal framework contained in the Maastricht and Lisbon Treaties influenced its course and who and why suffered the most losses. Finally, the task of the article is to determine which aspects of the architecture of the eurozone proved to be unsustainable and what has therefore had to be changed in it.
