Second meeting of the series.
For some time now, Europe has been facing both intense internal pressures and complex external dilemmas. To help the EU move beyond these challenges and reflect on the opportunities that lie ahead, CEPS has launched a new series of events on the Future of Europe.
During the second meeting on 9 November 2017 the future of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) will be discussed. François Villeroy de Galhau, Governor of the Bank of France will give his views on the way forward for the governance mechanism enabling the single European currency. In particular, Mr Villeroy will deliberate in a lunchtime meeting chaired by CEPS Senior Fellow Cinzia Alcidi on the steps and conditions necessary to complete the EMU as well as what central banks can contribute to this.
At subsequent meetings organised within the new Future of Europe series, politicians, high-level policymakers, academics and think tankers will discuss desirable objectives and possible actions in key policy areas, from the economy and euro area governance to social policy, migration, security and defence. These events will also address the EU’s institutional framework and its overall fitness for purpose, the EU’s financial framework and budget, and the fundamental values on which the EU is based.
