CER Podcast: Will political turmoil in Spain and the Netherlands leave the EU in a tough spot?

Camino Mortera-Martinez, Sander Tordoir
09 August 2023

In this week’s Centre for European Reform podcast Camino Mortera-Martinez, head of the Brussels office and Sander Tordoir, senior economist, join our host Octavia Hughes to discuss the implications of the Spanish and Dutch elections for the EU. They explore the causes of the political impasse in Spain and the consequences of government collapse in the Netherlands. The Spanish and the Dutch have become important power brokers in the EU as a result of weakening Franco-German relations. Now, with the pair of countries as a diminished force, will the EU come to a standstill?
