The EU’s Democratisation Agenda in Times of a Eurozone Crisis
Despite reasonable suppositions that the current eurozone crisis could have a negative effect on the EU's democratization agenda, this does not appear to be happening according to the authors.

Additionally, the European Endowment for Democracy, the creation of which was called for by Poland, was formally approved.
