Webinar on the future of EU fiscal policy
In this special one-off we focus on European fiscal policy, following FiscalMatters’ week of debate(opens in new window) in which the future of the EU fiscal framework is discussed: “Too often important policy decisions happen behind closed doors. We need an open and accessible debate on Europe’s fiscal future”.
Together with Ludovic Suttor-Sorel from Finance Watch(opens in new window) we look at the current EU fiscal rules and how they should change in order to face the challenges we face regarding climate change, a just transition, rising inequality, unemployment and public health. How can we, civil society, academics and social and environmental activists contribute to fiscal policy for the good?
- What are the main problems of the current EU fiscal rules, and to what extent to they hinder countries to make the necessary investments to build resilient green economies?
- What kind of EU fiscal framework do we need to tackle the main challenges of the 21st century?
- What other instruments should the EU use to promote more convergence between the member states, and is this all feasible within the euro
