The speakers will be presenting their new book which explores the European Central Bank's (ECB) monetary policy during the last ten years and the impact of populism during the financial and economic crisis. The ECB's actions during the crisis were of immediate political importance, not only for the financial and banking sector but for the European Union and its legitimacy altogether.

Drawing on different experiences, Sebastian Diessner, Corrado Macchiarelli, Mara Monti and Claudia Wiesner offer a detailed analytical narrative of the ECB's reaction to the financial crisis and of monetary policymaking conduct during its most fraught moments. In the broader context of the EU economic governance, the book sets a particular focus on the relation of crisis’ governance to changes in public opinion in the EU, and, explicitly, public support of the ECB, to conclude with a reflection on the challenges lying ahead for the conduct of the EMU monetary policy.
