About the Speech:   In his address, Professor Enderlein will argue that under the current EMU architecture, the euro is unlikely to survive the next major crisis and the big questions now are: what the right policy combinations are and how they should be implemented? Professor Enderlein believes that there is a need for a parallel move towards more sovereignty-sharing and more risk-sharing in a context of enhanced economic convergence, limited to a few additional integration elements that will ensure the euro can survive another big storm.    About the Speaker:   Henrik Enderlein is Associate Dean and Professor of Political Economy at the Hertie School of Governance and Director of the Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin.
