Toward a Genuine Economic and Monetary Union

This workshop’s purpose is to inspire reflection on the long-term future of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). Starting from current crisis-related challenges, the workshop focuses on four areas in which reforms might increase the resilience of EMU architecture and the prosperity of the euro area. The workshop intends to give an overview of the current state of economic research and the policy debate, with an emphasis on creative proposals aimed at overcoming existing deadlocks. The specific areas covered are in line with the recent “Five Presidents’ Report – Completing Europe's Economic and Monetary Union”: Economic, Financial, Fiscal and Political Union.
