The euro-crisis has exposed how far the European Union must deal with different ‘worlds of governance’ across its member states.  The EU had neglected the challenges of different institutional capacities and administrative cultures in the national implementation of its policies. How come? Now it is drawn into an unprecedented ‘micro-management’ of national reform, raising issues of credibility and legitimacy and risking new national and European cleavages.  Can the EU cope with these challenges? Can the ‘bail-out’ states truly standalone?
