The talk will focus on the major challenges ahead to complete the Economic and Monetary Union in Europe.
The European Union is still recovering from the financial crisis that started in 2008. Although the crisis started there, the recovery from it in the United States has been far better than in Europe. Why is that? To answer this question Barend Jansen, Assistant General Counsel at the International Monetary Fund, will discuss the pillars of European monetary and financial frameworks. These pillars and how they have gradually developed over the years in both regions will be discussed from a legal and institutional perspective, pre-and- post-crisis.
