EU Member States are putting place a series of extraordinary and unprecedented fiscal measures to support their economies and to combat the ravaging effects of COVID-19.

  • Will those fiscal measures be sufficient and effective?
  • What coordination instruments are available at the European level?
  • Which new EU financial assistance instruments can be considered? What would be their design, size and deployment time?

This online debate, part of the FBF Online Series on the Coronavirus crisis, will critically engage with those key questions, and will close off with a Q&A session with seminar participants.

The event will be chaired and moderated by Elena Carletti (Bocconi University and Florence School of Banking and Finance, European University Institute).
