Seven years after the crisis: intersecting perspectives

This joint publication brings together the papers produced as part of the first collaboration between Bruegel and the OCP Policy Center. Within the theme of “Seven Years after the Crisis: Intersecting Perspectives” our two organisations launched a “Platform for Advanced & Emerging Economies Policy Dialogue” in Rabat on 1 April 2016.

By: , , , , , , , and Date: August 19, 2016 Topic: Global Economics & Governance

Bruegel and OCP Policy Center researchers have tackled through their papers issues of utmost importance to all shores of the Mediterranean basin.

In the first paper, “Youth Unemployment in the Mediterranean Region and its Long term Implications”, written by Nuria Boot, Karen E. Wilson and Guntram B. Wolff, the focus is on the correlation between youth unemployment in the Mediterranean region and the problems that this leads to in Europe as a whole.

The second paper, “Energy Across the Mediterranean: A call for Realism”, by Simone Tagliapietra and George Zachmann, advises the European Union to draw lessons from two decades of unproductive regional cooperation attempts.

Karim El Aynaoui, Uri Dadush, Karim El Mokri and Rim Berahab contribute the paper “The Unmet Challenge of Interdependence in the EU-MENA space: A View from the South”. They examine bilateral relations between Europe and the Arab world, especially as they relate to trade, migration, investment, and energy.

In “Industrial Policy, Structural Change and Global Value Chains Participation: A Case Study of Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt”, Abdelaaziz Ait Ali and Yassine Msadfa use two methods to analyse the pace of structural transformation (the positive change in manufacturing capability) in Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt.

Working Paper

Estimating the cost of capital for wind energy investments in Turkey

Wind power represents a key component of Turkey’s national energy strategy. Based on data collected on 138 installations in the country, this paper provides an estimation of wind power’s cost of capital in Turkey. This analysis finds that the cost of capital for wind power in Turkey compares with the one of South-east European countries. On this basis, continued governmental commitment to current support schemes for wind power must be considered as crucial to further promote wind power deployment in the country, even if the recent devaluation of the Turkish lira raises the feed-in-tariffs cost for the government.

Europe and the new imperialism

For decades, Europe has served as a steward of the post-war liberal order, ensuring that economic rules are enforced and that national ambitions are subordinated to shared goals within multilateral bodies. But with the United States and China increasingly mixing economics with nationalist foreign-policy agendas, Europe will have to adapt.

New EU industrial policy can only succeed with focus on completion of single market and public procurement

France and Germany recently unveiled a manifesto for a European industrial policy fit for the 21st century, sparking a lively debate across the continent. The fundamental idea underpinning the manifesto is a good one: Europe does need an industrial policy to ensure that EU companies remain highly competitive globally, notwithstanding strong competition from China and other big players. However, the Franco-German priorities are unsuitable for the pursuit of this goal.
