In the wake of the pandemic, governments across Europe, as well as the European Commission, have financed programs to spur economic recovery. These programs differ in ambition, as well as in the scope of policies. The event highlights key features of the French, Greek and EU programs, while also focusing on policies to reduce inequality.
