European Union financial integration, a geography perspective
journal contributionposted on 2019-04-10, 08:20 authored by Michiel Van Meeteren
During the last 30 years, the financial sectors of the different European Union member states have gradually coalesced toward operating in a single, integrated, European financial space. This paper analyses financial integration by chronicling the process from Jacques Delors' single market project until the recent capital markets union. Drawing on geographical theories of space and scale, the paper collates the large interdisciplinary literature on financial integration with an emphasis on the work of financial geographers. The result is a distinctive geographical perspective on European financial integration intended to inform new rounds of empirical research.
