ONLINE PUBLIC EVENT – The Euro@30: has the common currency finally grown up?
Our guests will be: Professor Waltraud Schelkle Professor Paul De Grauwe Martin Wolf Chair: Dr Angelo Martelli

Hosted by the LSE European Institute – 16:30 GMT

The idea of a common currency materialised with the Maastricht Treaty thirty years ago. But soon after it was tested in a major crisis in 1992/93, with more to come. This panel will discuss whether the reforms since 2010 have been sufficient to make the Euro a “mature” currency.
