Panel discussion: Markets VS Democracy? Domestic politics and Eurozone governance in the crisis and beyond

Panel discussion: Markets VS Democracy? Domestic politics and Eurozone governance in the crisis and beyond

Wednesday 20th June, 6pm - 8pm, Room S0.28

The skyrocketing of risk premiums on sovereign debt in Southern Europe, and a narrowly avoided constitutional crisis in Italy, recently conjured up the spectre of the Eurozone crisis, and reignited the debate about the fraught relationship between domestic politics, European integration, and market discipline. This event seeks to discuss the persisting tensions between democratic aspirations and the constraining character of Eurozone pressures. Speakers will draw on experiences from Italy, Spain and Greece, as well as recent developments in European economic governance to address the issues of technocracy, depoliticization, and state autonomy. There will then be time for Q&A and open debate.
 
Confirmed speakers: Alexis Moraitis (PAIS, Warwick), Javi Moreno Zacares (PAIS, Warwick), Muireann O’Dwyer (PAIS, Warwick), Arianna Tassinari (Warwick Business School).
 
This event is organised by Warwick PhD students in Politics and International Studies, WBS and Italian Studies, with the kind support of PAIS. All welcome.
