In the spring of 2016 policymakers were struggling to find the way forward to preserve a future for the European steel industry, once a bedrock of the bloc’s industrial economy, which was facing the most serious crisis in its history.

A lethal cocktail of low prices and demand, overcapacity and national, international and EU policies threatened to overwhelm the once proud industry that still employed 360,000 people across Europe.

This Special Report looked into the root causes of the steel crisis and explored solutions being envisaged to save European steelmaking from bankruptcy.
