Economy, finance and the euro publications
Publications prepared by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs are divided into four series.
Institutional Papers are reports analysing the economic situation and economic developments. They serve to underpin economic policy-making by the European Commission, the Council of the EU and the European Parliament.
Economic Briefs inform discussion on economic policy and stimulate debate.
Discussion Papers increase awareness of the technical work being done by staff and seek comments and suggestions for further analysis.
DISCLAIMER: Views expressed in Economic Briefs and Discussion Papers are solely those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the European Commission.
Technical Papers are reports and data compiled by the staff of the Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs.
Publications issued before July 2015 can be found in this archive.
