We will have the opportunity to explore ongoing challenges and review the development, emergence and renewal of political economy in Europe. The theme of this event will center around financial crisis management with a focus on the pressures facing Europe’s welfare states in a time of fiscal austerity and how political institutions can strengthen to fix this system.
