Abstract

Portuguese Abstract: Este artigo debruça-se sobre a natureza jurídica dos “memorandos de entendimento” negociados pelo Governo português com o Fundo Monetário Internacional, a Comissão Europeia e o Banco Central Europeu (a “troika”) que preveem o programa de ajustamento económico e financeiro que condiciona a assistência financeira internacional a Portugal entre 2011 e 2014. Aborda também, no mesmo contexto, o memorando que servirá de base a futuros “resgates” de Estados-Membros na União Europeia.
