The purpose of this workshop is to begin discussions on four key areas in which actual or proposed changes to EMU can meet with legal and institutional constraints or raise important issues of design and effectiveness. Policy briefs which have been prepared by legal scholars in the project will be discussed in a shared meeting of legal scholars and economists. The discussion aims to deepen understanding as to how an effective and desirable EMU might be achieved and how, if at all, legal and normative difficulties that arise could be resolved.

Organisers: Professor Claire Kilpatrick, Professor Giorgio Monti (Department of Law, European University Institute)
