Abstract

In Western Europe, nationalisation and privatization alike were often implemented for similar reasons across countries. In the case of privatization, though this was a decision for government at the national, and not the European level, processes of economic and monetary integration in Europe proved decisive in explaining major trends in privatisation in the region.

Keywords: privatization, nationalization, integration
