How to Fix the Euro

11 March 2014 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Chatham House, London



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.
