The financial crisis, labelled the 'greatest crisis in EU history' by EU officials, has increased the uncertainty. The European Union and its Crises: Through the Eyes of the Brussels Elite presents analyses by EU leaders (including administrative leaders in European institutions, European parliamentarians and key political figures) of the great problems and prospects the EU faces.and key political figures) of the great problems and prospects the EU faces.
