CIDOB, EuropeG and Cercle d’Economia, all of them institutions committed to the European project, organise this second session on the future of the eurozone.
As mentioned in this previous session, leaving the crisis behind opens up a new era for the European Union and one of its main tasks is to consolidate the eurozone. This is a complex goal since there is a need to converge towards more fiscal and financial integration while EU citizens are increasingly reclaiming a social agenda. This ambitious process must move forward while the Union is confronting other complex challenges. Sorting out the Brexit negotiations; facing euroscepticism among its citizens; and consolidating the two-speed Europe amidst of the East-West divide are just a few.
