Europe’s Future: Saving the Old World’s Economies and the Whole World’s Climate

Wednesday, 9 November 2011, Brussels

Main topics addressed by the first panel: What are the conditions needed to make the EMU a lasting success? Which type of economic governance do we need? Will Europe move towards a transfer union because the GIPS countries will not be able to stand on their own feet? How credible is the strategy of exiting the bailout operations? Must the ECB be redefined?

The second panel discussed the chances for and limits to European climate policy and  raised the question of whether Europe needs a centrally coordinated energy policy.
