Single Market 2.0

Tuesday, Jun 9, 2020

Yesterday over lunch1 i attended an online seminar on “Single Market 2.0: the European Union as a Platform” by Andrea Renda (CEPS). Despite the rather silly “2.0” moniker in the title, his presentation turned out to be a veritable tour de force through the digital policy space in general and the digital policy issues currently on the agenda of the EU Commission. There is a lot to unpack and to learn here but for now i leave you with Renda’s sketch of his proposed architecture for the the Single Market 2.0:

For this to make any sense to you, you will either have to watch the recording of the seminar or read the underlying research paper.
