This book has provided a multidisciplinary analysis of the EU budget encompassing historical, political, legal and economic perspectives. As it was highlighted in the introduction, such a multidisciplinary approach has allowed to disentangle several topics for which single disciplines would not be able to provide a comprehensive evaluation. The contributions were carefully chosen in order to cover a wide spectrum of relevant themes characterizing the EU budget. Part 1 of the book (Historical and Political Profiles) has been identified given the consideration that there is a tight linkage between the evolution of the EU budget and the overall development of the European Union, especially in terms of integration among Member States. Part 2 (Legal and Economic Profiles) has been deemed necessary considering the ongoing debate on the need to reform the EU budget and of the trade-off between unity and flexibility. Moreover, legal and economic measures have a clear impact on the democratic legitimacy and on the political representation of the European Union.

The budget has constituted one of the most debated and important issues at the political and at the academic level since the inception of the European Economic Community and in the ensuing evolution to the European Community and to the European Union (EU). The changes in its structure and composition are then crucial elements to understanding of the historical and political developments of the European Union and of its legal and economic perspectives. Given that the EU budget is mainly composed of transfers from Member States to the Union, the political negotiation always begins in the Council, where the heads of state and government define the strategic directions of the Union and set the overall amounts of the programming period. Subsequently, the European Commission presents a proposal that is first approved by the European Parliament and then by the Council of the EU. The Lisbon Treaty aimed at reinforcing the role of the EU Parliament to make the discussion more democratic. In this way, the budget would become a fruitful dialogue between European institutions, which are stakeholders of different interest groups. The financial planning would then become a fundamental open space of political confrontation, despite the expected tensions between institutions.
