RCC is pleased to announce this event, sponsored by the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies

The Eurozone Crisis is not over. Europe’s response has consisted of ad hoc crisis management measures and new rules that have failed to put the currency zone on firmer political ground. The cost has been a crisis of legitimacy in the member states, in particular the debtor states that continue to bear most of the hardship. This two-panel session explores the fundamental problems that remain, the obstacles to their resolution, and the political effects that the crisis has had in Southern Europe.
