The global financial crisis has pitched the European political economy into arguably its most profound crisis since the war. What is the future of the European political economy in a post-crisis world order? Can Europe grow again and what aspects of its growth models and the institutional architecture in which they have been embedded need to be recast to secure that growth? How can European growth be made both institutionally and environmentally sustainable in the decades ahead?
The aim of this conference is to provide a context in which alternative strategies and models of growth for the European economy can be proposed, debated, evaluated and assessed by academics and policy-makers alike.
Confirmed plenary speakers include: Peter Katzenstein (Cornell University), Vivien Schmidt (Boston University), Iain Begg (LSE), Stuart Holland (Universidade de Coimbra and former MP) and David Marsh CBE (Chairman, OMFIF).
