European Competitiveness: is completing the single market the key?
Speaker(s): Professor Damian Chalmers, Professor Sebastien Dullien, Yiannos Papantoniou
Chair: Professor Iain Begg
Recorded on 21 November 2013 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.
The single European market has been a remarkable achievement. Its completion could substantially boost growth- especially in the EU’s struggling economies. Has the euro crisis put paid to these hopes?
'The Europe Question: perspectives from the UK’ initiative aims to bridge the evident gap in understanding and mutual distrust between the UK, its European partners and the EU institutions in Brussels, through a sober and systematic examination of the most fundamental issues surrounding European integration and the UK's place within the European project. This initiative by ECFR, the LSE European Institute and the European Commission Representation in the UK constitutes the next chapter in the well-received ‘Europe at the Crossroads’ initiative.
Damian Chalmers is professor of European Union Law at LSE.
Sebastian Dullien is senior policy fellow at ECFR and professor of international economics at HTW Berlin.
Yiannos Papantoniou was the Greek economy and finance minister from 1994 to 2001.
