In February, after months of negotiations, the European Council agreed to a new multiannual budget for the EU for 2014 to 2020. Ahead of the European Parliament’s vote on the budget, Giacomo Benedetto takes an in-depth look at how spending has changed across policy areas, finding that the largest cuts have been made to policies aimed at enhancing growth, infrastructure and the knowledge economy. With fewer cuts due to be applied to controversial policy areas like cohesion and agricultural policy, the European Parliament may yet vote to reject the current budget proposal.
