Beyond the Euro Crisis
The purpose of this conference is to assess whether improvements to the architecture and policies of Europe’s Monetary Union bolster confidence in the stability of the European financial system and will lead to robust economic growth.
Indeed, the Eurozone debt crisis has highlighted how individual countries and country‑specific shocks can impact the stability of the Eurozone economies and of their financial systems. Six years on from the 2008 financial crisis and five years into the continuing Eurozone crisis, the EU has proposed and implemented a range of reforms aimed at strengthening the stability of Europe’s financial and macroeconomic system. In this setting, the outcome of the European Central Bank’s (ECB) Comprehensive Assessment provides an opportunity to review progress so far.
