Eugénia da Conceição-Heldt’s sophisticated comment on our analysis of the European Commission’s role in economic governance notwithstanding, we stand by our conclusion that the Commission emerges as an ‘unexpected winner’ from the current crisis. It wins by significantly gaining competences in absolute terms — and unexpectedly so, given the constant murmur about the Commission being in decline. We agree, however, that further research is needed to fully grasp the complex institutional implications of the still ongoing crisis for the Commission.
