The future of the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) is at the core of the reflection on the future of European integration. The debate about its architecture has accompanied the entire evolution of the EU and several proposals have been made in the past. This policy forum aims at an open, broad and deep discussion on the possible options for the future of the EMU, starting from the assessment of the existing proposals. We will try to investigate the economic, social and political implications of the EMU, to envisage the changes which may be necessary to move forward, and to assess the political feasibility.
Speakers: László Andor, Senior Fellow at FEPS and former European Commissioner, Clemens Fuest, President of the ifo Institute for Economic Research, and Dr. Vesa Vihriälä, Managing Director of the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy (ETLA)
