2020 CefES-JRC Webinar Series

The European Central Bank between the Financial Crisis and Populisms

by Corrado Macchiarelli, Sebastian Diessner, Mara Monti and Claudia Wiesner

Event Summary

Corrado Macchiarelli, Sebastian Diessner and Mara Monti present their new book – written with Claudia Wiesner – exploring the ECB’s monetary policy-making over the past decade. The book scrutinises the different dimensions of the EU's economic governance, the implications of the ECB's actions since the financial crisis, and how these relate to the rise of anti-establishment politics in Europe. As such, this book will be relevant not only to understand the political implications of the past crisis but also, and foremost, in understanding "what is next".
