The State of European Banking Union: two proposals to resurrect it

25th February 2020, 6:30 to 8:00 pm
Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE

Speakers: Luis Garicano (Member of the European Parliament and former LSE professor)

Chair: Professor Andrés Velasco (Dean of the School of Public Policy, LSE)

The European Banking Union is agonizing. None of its two stated objectives—breaking the diabolic loop between banks and sovereigns, and securing a single market for banks—has been achieved. In fact, the banking market is more fragmented today than it was during the financial and sovereign debt crisis. During the lecture, Luis Garicano will discuss the reasons for the lack of progress in the last five years and the risks posed by the current impasse, as well as delineate possible paths forward.

Co-hosts: School of Public Policy, European Institute, Centre For Macroeconomics and Financial Markets Group, LSE.
