Europeanization, Power, and Convergence The questions that animate this volume, and its core organizing concepts and approaches, reflect its intellectual origins in comparative political economy, notably the study of the institutional basis of macro-economic policies. ‘Europeanization’, ‘power’, and ‘convergence’ offer a cluster of interrelated concepts with which to examine change in central banking. Europeanization Europeanization refers to the domestic effects of European integration on policies, polities, and politics and characteristically focuses on mechanisms and the qualitative aspects of time (Dyson and Goetz 2003; Featherstone and Radaelli 2003).

Most notably, the Bundesbank gained from its perceived, though hard-fought, success in delivering price stability in Germany, in the context of growth and high employment. Central banks are, in short, dependent on ‘output’ legitimacy. 23 The Age of the Euro: A Structural Break? The ‘output’ legitimacy of the Bundesbank made it the model for the design of the ECB. In gaining ‘output’ legitimacy in its first decade the relative power of the ECB within the Eurosystem was strengthened. However, this legitimacy is contingent on performance.

The ECB is accountable to the public of the Euro Area to deliver its Treaty mandate of price stability. Within the shared context of the Eurosystem, these four factors—alongside the international strength of the domestic financial sector—provide different opportunity structures and constraints for central banks. They account for persisting variations in their potential to project and exercise power. The presence and effect of these factors is even more evident outside the Eurosystem. Persisting national preferences in key areas like accountability and transparency keep the Bank of England and the Swedish Riksbank at an intellectual distance from the Eurosystem.
