Participants

Overview

The euro area has protected its members from currency crises during the current global turmoil. However, several of its members now face major challenges in reducing large external deficits amid rising levels of public debt. How will EMU stand up to the resulting stresses, and what could be their political repercussions?

This event is strictly by invitation only.
