The debate on European economic governance has, to date, concentrated on dealing with the immediate crises, and the short-term policy responses, rather than putting in place a set of sustainable processes and institutions to provide a coherent framework for growth. Bringing together senior policy-makers, practitioners and experts from governments and institutions across Europe this event will serve as the start of new project which aims to advance the debate on European economic governance and suggest a constructive framework for strengthening it.

Attendance is by invitation only.
