Joint ZEW-EconPol Lunch Debate

Reforming the Eurozone: Prospects and Challenges


Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union, Bruxelles

Against the background of the fervently discussed reform of the Eurozone, this Joint EconPol-ZEW Lunch Debate will consider a number of questions. These include: Creating an EMU reform package that not only makes economic sense but which both Northern and Southern Europe can agree on; finding a way to effectively combine stabilising elements with elements that ensure a certain degree of self-reliance; precisely defining the responsibilities of a potential European Finance Minister; determining the main priorities of a Eurozone budget.
