Arie Krampf, former postdoctoral fellow at the KFG (now Senior Lecturer at the Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo), and Barbara Fritz, Senior Research Scholar at the KFG “The Transformative Power of Europe”, edited a Special Issue of the journal “Contemporary Politics” (21:2, June 2015) on the topic “Coping with Financial Crises: Explaining Variety in Regional Arrangements”.

It links together the economic and political aspects of the construction of regional financial arrangements by including contributions from diverse disciplinary fields within economics and political science. A special focus lies on the relationship between the construction of regional monetary cooperations and the solution of financial crises. The issue features contributions about the Eurozone, ASEAN +3, MERCOSUR, the influence of ideas and interests on solving financial crises and comparisons between the EU and the US.
