Political, fiscal and banking union in the euro zone?

The euro zone conference is co-organised by the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Financial Institutions Center, the EUI’s Department of Economics and two elements of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies; the Global Governance Programme and the Pierre Werner Chair. Academics and business practitioners will come together to discuss the euro zone, with speakers including Tony Barber, Europe editor at the Financial Times, and Andrea Enria, chairperson of the European Banking Authority. “We believe that an open discussion on this timely and important topic is needed for a better understanding of the future development of the euro zone and of the European Union as a whole,” says co-organiser, Professor Elena Carletti.

The State of the Union

For the third year running the EUI will host The State of the Union conference, an opportunity for high-level reflection on the European Union. The conference will bring together leading academics, policy-makers, civil society representatives and business and opinion leaders to discuss the current situation and future prospects of the European Union. The 2013 event will be divided into two plenary sessions – focusing on institutions and democratic governance, and migration and citizenship – which will be expanded upon in lunchtime sessions. The event will be held at Florence’s historic city hall, the Palazzo Vecchio, and organised within the framework of the city’s Festival of Europe.
