Rethinking European economic policy in the “E”MU
In 1992, European leaders agreed in Maastricht upon launching the European Monetary Union. 30 years later, it is time to take stock and reflect: what 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 first session will focus on the role of the recovery fund in transforming European economies. Professor Agnes Bénassy Quéré, Chief Economist of the French Treasury, Professor Kenneth Dyson, author of The Road to Maastricht (1999), and professor Benedicta Marzinotto will discuss the resilience of national economies as building blocks of the Euro and boosting Europe’s priorities in key domains such as climate, digitalisation and social market economy.
