European Monetary and Fiscal Policy -What’s Next?

September 27

In 1992, European leaders agreed in Maastricht upon launching the European Monetary Union. 30 years later, it is time to take stock and reflectwhat of the Eurozone framework as designed in the ‘80’s and ‘90’s remains relevant after the financial debt crisis, Brexit, the pandemic and climate change? Eminent speakers discuss how we can join the dots to create a European Monetary Union that protects the common good of citizens across Europe and ensures welfare and well-being for future generations 

 On 26 and 27 September, Maastricht will bring together critical thinkers, policymakers, researchers, journalists and interested citizens for a structured debate around three major topics.  

This second session will focus on recent developments in EU fiscal and monetary policies. Mr Rolf Strauch (Chief Economist at the European Stability Mechanism), Ms Maria Demertzis (Deputy Director at Bruegel) and professor Erik Jones will reflect on the ramifications of current circumstances on the rules laid out in the Maastricht Treaty, the instrumentarium of the ECB and the role of the ECB in more general terms (treaty mandates).
