5.-6. 10. 2016 Global Implications of Europe’s Redesign
Europe’s Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) has been a driving force of the global economy and financial markets since the project was first launched on 1 January 1999. The crisis revealed the structural fault lines of the initial project and although significant progress has been made to strengthen the institutional setup, further work lies ahead. Bringing together leading policymakers, technical experts and practitioners, the first SUERF conference held in the United States offers a unique opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of EMU and the key factors to watch for both economic and market trends. The conference will address the following key questions: What is required for European finance to become fit for growth? Does the ECB have enough ammunition to get inflation back to target? Is helicopter money the next unorthodox policy tool? Can the Single Market deliver a new growth spurt for Europe? How will Europe tackle the changing political landscape?
A lecture by Jean-Marc Ayrault, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, France. This will be followed by an audience Q&A moderated by Jan Svejnar, James T. Shotwell Professor of Global Political Economy and Director of the Center on Global Economic Governance. Welcoming remarks will be given by Merit E. Janow, Dean of the School of International and Public Affairs and Professor of Professional Practice in International Economic Law and International Affairs.
