With the fallout from the Eurozone crisis still fresh in the minds of European leaders, several figures have emphasised the need to make Eurozone economies more ‘resilient’ to future economic shocks. But what does this mean in practice? Sotiria Theodoropoulou writes that focusing on economic resilience may offer a way forward for future reforms, but there is a danger that in emphasising the vulnerability of individual states, other key factors, such as the institutional shortcomings in the Eurozone that allowed the initial crisis to emerge, will be overlooked.
