This dissertation examines measures in response to the European sovereign debt crisis aimed at achieving closer fiscal union. The first is the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) which provides financial assistance to Euro area member states beset by budgetary difficulties. The second is the establishment of a Euroepan Monetary Fund as a permanent Euro area support fund to be based in the EFSF. The author analyses the suitability of the establishment of a European Monetary Fund as a measure to avoid future crises. Special attention is paid to the legal basis and feasibility of the measures in question.
