The Stability and Growth Pact after the European Semester (JCMS, 2021)

New paper (with Mark Hallerberg) published at JCMS.  We examine the determinants of the Council of Ministers's editing of the European Commission recommendations to Member States after the introduction of the European Semester in the period 2011–18. Unlike previous work, we find little evidence of a systematic relationship between euroscepticism and textual editing.
