Prof Brigitte Granville discusses Europe’s future in the European Financial Congress

Professor Brigitte Granville, Director the Centre for Globalisation Research, will participate in the European Financial Congress, to be celebrated on Sopot during 13-15th of June 2016. Professor Granville will participate in the opening debate discussing “Europe’s Future: Possible scenarios”.

The European Financial Congress was initiated in 2011 and aims to present an expert polish view on international debates about development and security. The congress is a space to debate the future of the European Union, identifying current economic challenges and proposing pragmatic solutions to them.  Each year these solutions are presented as a list of “EFC Recommendations” and help to shape EFC engagement with institutions such as the Financial Stability Board, the European Commission, or European Supervisory authorities.
This year EFC will be celebrated the 13th, 14th and 15th of June structured across four main streams: The stability of financial systems, Strategies, business and risks on financial markets; Innovation, internationalization and new technologies; and Financing of infrastructure development. The conference honours Governor Marek Belka as he ends his term as President of the National Bank of Poland.  Professor Belka is not only a prolific academic researcher on applied economics, he has also served as Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, and from May 2004 to October 2005 as Prime Minister of Poland. The conference will start with a debate on European futures before dividing into separate streams. In the EFC inaugural debate, Prof Granville will discuss possible future scenarios for Europe with Joschka Fischer, Deputy Chancellor of Germany in 1998-2005, or Klaus Regling, Managing Director of the European Stability Mechanisms, among other academic, political, and corporate leaders.
