Long term fallout for the EU from the Greek crisis

28 May 2010 - 08:00 to 09:15

Chatham House, London


Professor Jim Rollo, Associate Fellow, International Economics, Chatham House



The Greek debt crisis throws up a set of potential long term issues for the eurozone and the EU, beyond possible default and contagion. The speaker will argue that the role of the IMF in managing the Greek rescue and in the Emergency Funding Facility sends mixed signals about attitudes of core members of the eurozone to the degree of fiscal integration required for a common currency. This in turn casts doubt on the prospect of further expansion of the eurozone and perhaps the EU.

This event is strictly by invitation only.

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
