Who should govern the Euro?

March 26 | 12:45 pm - 2:30 pm

About the Speech:

In his presentation, Mr. Sandbu will outline his view on the current debate on the deepening of EMU.  He will make the case that the current trend among EU decision makers to respond to problems by creating centrally controlled instruments is not always the appropriate response.  He will further argue the case for developing ‘coalitions of the willing’ for deeper cooperation in specific policy areas.
