Résumé :

Will the euro and Europe's monetary union survive? We will debate these issues in the workshop.

Détails :

The euro-zone's financial crisis dominated the headlines in 2011. Initially a sovereign-debt crisis limited to certain euro-zone countries with growing budget deficits and high levels of sovereign debt, it gradually evolved into a general crisis of confidence in the entire euro-zone. Euro-zone leaders are presently grappling with solutions to restore confidence in order to prevent the collapse of the European Monetary Union, but the possible solutions, from the European Financial Stability Facility to creating Euro-Bonds and a fiscal union are highly contentious. Will the euro and Europe's monetary union survive? We will debate these issues in the workshop.
