About this Event


This conference assesses the first decade of the Euro Area from the perspective of the extent to which, and ways in which, the creation of the euro has affected EU member states, 'insiders' and 'outsiders'. It sets these effects in their wider global and European contexts and addresses three key questions:

  • What has been the role of Economic and Monetary Union in shaping domestic institutional reforms, policy changes and political developments?
  • How have member states sought to reshape EMU, and with what effects?
  • Has the Euro Area been associated with convergence?

The conference offers an opportunity to listen to drafts of chapters for a forthcoming Oxford University Press book that will mark the 10th anniversary of the euro and will appear as a radically revised edition of European States and the Euro (OUP, 2002).
