The future of economic governance in the EU

The Eurozone crisis remains the decisive issue of the day. It splits political families, divides societies and heavily affects all of our economies. Only one week after the next  European Council, Policy Network will offer a unique opportunity to engage with some of Europe’s leading policymakers and thinkers on the most controversial questions surrounding the future of the EU.

The event is co-funded by the European Commissions’ UK representation.

A strong line-up of speakers, including leading experts from across the political, business and academic community in the UK and Europe, will share their insights on the latest developments including: the impact on the current sovereign debt crisis, the distribution of power within the European Union, the future of the single market, and Britain’s place in the EU.
