Summary/Abstract: When the current European Commission began its mandate on 1 November 2014 under President Jean-Claude Juncker, it did so in highly inauspicious political circumstances. The EU was still suffering one of the most severe financial and economic crises since World War II; unemployment had hit unprecedentedly high levels; inter-governmental emergency measures burdened the Union’s democratic quality; and the trust in European institutions of apolitics-fatigued electorate had hit an all-time low.
