With the Commission’s consultation period on the Single Market Act nearing its end, this CEPS Policy Brief urges the EU to get its act together and give immediate priority to deepening and widening the Single Market. The author argues, however, that it is essential that the legitimacy questions surrounding ‘more Single Market’ are taken seriously at both EU and at national level.
