A European policy outlook: the crisis and beyond

LSE European Institute – APCO Worldwide Perspectives on Europe Series

Date: Monday 17 September 2012 
Time: 4.15-5.25pm 
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Pierre Moscovici
Chair: Peter Sutherland

Pierre Moscovici will address both the policy outlook in France and the ongoing crisis management developments at the European level.

Pierre Moscovici was appointed Minister of the Economy and Finance on 16 May 2012, following the election of President François Hollande. He has been involved in European and international affairs as well as in national politics, in particular on fiscal issues. He was first a member of the European Parliament from 1994 to 1997, and became one of its vice-presidents from 2004 to 2007. In the meantime, he was elected to France's National Assembly in 1997 (and was later re-elected in 2007 and 2012), in the constituency of Doubs in eastern France, and was appointed Minister for European Affairs in the government of Lionel Jospin from 1997 to 2002, where he was specifically involved in finalizing the Amsterdam Treaty in 1997 and negotiating the Nice Treaty in 2000. He was also involved in negotiating the European Constitutional Treaty of 2004 and was a vigorous advocate of its adoption in France. Before holding elected office, he worked for the French Socialist Party, which he joined back in 1984 as an expert on fiscal issues. Pierre Moscovici joined the Audit Court (Cour des Comptes) after graduating from the Ecole Nationale d’Administration (ENA) in 1984.
