Strengthening EMU Architecture  
A conversation with Dr Mahmood Pradhan and Professor Panicos Demetriades

 

Mahmood Pradhan, Deputy Director for Europe at the International Monetary Fund, will share his thoughts about deepening and strengthening the European Monetary Union, and reforming the Institutional architecture of the EMU. He will also discuss the recent IMF proposal for a Central Fiscal Capacity in the Euro Area to help smooth both idiosyncratic and systematic shocks. One of the authors, Bergjlot Barkbu, will provide a summary of the proposal, and copies of the paper will be available for audience members. This will be followed by a discussion led by Professor Panicos Demetriades, Professor of Economics at Leicester University, former Governor of the Central Bank of Cyprus and member of the Governing Council of the European Central Bank. Both the initial remarks and the following discussion will be strictly off the record. Mahmood Pradhan will welcome questions and will encourage participants to share their perspectives and opinions. The event will be hosted by the Director of the Institute, Jagjit Chadha.
