Deepening EMU after the pandemic and the role of the ESMIn the last two years, we have experienced the worst crisis in the EU history and Europe’s policy response to the pandemic was fast, powerful, and well-coordinated. “NextGenerationEU” can support sustainable growth by accelerating economic structural change through the “green” and “digital” transformation. This contributes to economic convergence but is not enough. European integration would also need further initiatives to deepening our monetary union and strengthening European sovereignty. The seminar will discuss the review of the economic governance framework recently re-launched by the European Commission as an opportunity to make the European architecture more effective and robust, focusing on some proposals already on the table. In addition, it will be argued that it is fundamental to make progress in completing banking union and capital markets union. In this context, the ESM is contributing to this process by establishing the backstop to the Single Resolution Fund as well as by implementing the other elements of its mandate, as spelled out in the amended ESM Treaty, which is in its final stage of ratification.
