Policy Paper
This Policy Paper by Amélie Barbier-Gauchard sets out to draw particular attention to non-Community European funding, this form of public funding testifying as it does to certain member states’ wish to move forward together in a common direction by optimising the use of public resources and overcoming the political hurdles that can exist within the EU as a whole.
After having precised the location of this type of funding among European spending,  Amélie Babrier-Gauchard comes back on the difficulty to grasp the reality of non-Community European spending, which is yet substantial. Thoughout various examples of their applications, the author shows how the account of non-Community European spending  sheds new light on the reality of the Europeanisation of public spending and the opportunities to spend better together.
