CEPS Ideas Lab 2019 - EconPol Lab

Convergence and stabilisation in the Eurozone


The Egg, Rue Bara 175, 1070 Brussels

Since the French-German Meseberg declaration from June 2018, the debate about euro-area reforms has gathered new momentum. The EconPol Europe Lab Session will discuss chances and risks of recent policy initiatives such as an unemployment re-insurance scheme or tools incentivising structural reforms in the member states. Can these instruments deliver what their proponents promise? How could a compromise on EMU reform look like that finds support in all member states?
