Where next for the politics of the Eurozone crisis?

The Eurozone crisis has severely tested the solidarity of the European Union’s Member States and resulted in open division between creditor and debtor countries. As the Eurozone moves towards greater integration, concerns have been raised in countries outside the single currency about the future of a Union divided into a core and a periphery, or ‘ins’ and ‘outs’.

At this crucial time in the Eurozone crisis, Roger Liddle, Prof. Loukas Tsoukalis and  Olaf Cramme will provide a British, Greek and German perspective on the future of Europe. They will discuss whether the approaches of creditor, debtor and non-Eurozone countries can be reconciled and what we should expect for the future of European integration.

About the Speakers:
Roger Liddle is the Labour Party’s front bench spokesperson on Europe in the House of Lords and the Chair of Policy Network. He was the special advisor on European affairs to Prime Minister Tony Blair and from 2004-2007 served in the European Commission, first in the Cabinet of the EU Trade Commissioner and then as economic adviser to the President of the European Commission.

Loukas Tsoukalis is Professor of European Integration at the University of Athens and President of the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP). He has written extensively on European integration and international political economy and has also served as a special adviser to the President of the European Commission.

Olaf Cramme is the Director of Policy Network and a visiting fellow at the London School of Economics. He publishes widely on the future of the European Union, the idea of Europe in the twenty-first century and the legitimacy of EU policy-making.
