Participation free, registration mandatory

Register here  

Drawing on his newly released monograph Currency, Credit and Crisis: Central Banking in Ireland and Europe (Cambridge University Press, May 2019), Patrick Honohan, former Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland, will re-examine the role of the ECB in managing the euro area crisis, pointing to some analytical flaws and missed opportunities both at the level of monetary policy, and, beyond that, in regard to national bank resolution and fiscal adjustment.

The presentation will be followed by comments by George Papaconstantinou, former Finance Minister and Minister of Environment and Energy of Greece and part-time professor at the European University Institute’s School of Transnational Governance and by Maria Ana Barata, 4th year PhD Researcher at the European University Institute. The online seminar will be closed by a Q&A session with the public.
