Past event

How to Fix the Euro

Chatham House, London

European Economic Governance

Overview

The panel will discuss what measures and institutions are needed to make the EMU realize its potential and avoid further crises in the future which could threaten its existence. Strengthening the monetary union would require deeper integration on fiscal, financial and monetary policies, and the institutions to deliver it. However, these reforms could prove difficult to achieve as they would involve a significant transfer of power from national governments to European institutions, at a time when euroscepticism is strong.

The event will be followed by a reception.

The event will see the launch of the Chatham House and Elcano joint report How to Fix the Euro as part of the project on European Economic Governance.
